Federally Assisted Employment and Training: A Myriad of Programs Should Be Simplified. Report to the Congress by the Comptroller General of the United States.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
A study was conducted to examine federally assisted employment and training programs in the Tidewater, Virginia, area during fiscal year 1977. The General Accounting Office found forty-four programs with similar goals attempting to assist virtually the same people. These were authorized through sixteen separate legislative authorities, creating a maze of funding and administrative channels. Recommendations were made that the Congress and the Director, Office of Management and Budget, simplify the federal effort through consolidation of programs where feasible and take steps to achieve more effective coordination.
