Demonstration and Analysis of Interagency Coordination: Findings from the 1979-1982 Cooperative Planning Demonstration Program in California.
Gilmartin, Kevin J., Ed.; Rossi, Robert J., Ed.
A 3-year demonstration program on interagency coordination among California employment and training agencies is reviewed in this six-chapter report. The history and rationale for the demonstration program is described in chapter 1. Chapters 2 through 4, written by the three project directors, describe the cooperative planning experience in Imperial, San Diego, and Marin counties respectively. In these chapters the project directors describe their accomplishments and speculate why events occurred as they did and how things might have been different. Chapter 5 presents an analysis of the cooperative planning demonstration program, the role of the evaluation process in its success, and findings that can be generalized to other localities. Described in chapter 6 are four possible futures for state and local agencies that may result from the current proposals for employment and training systems being discussed in Washington, D.C. For each of these possible futures, recommendations are made concerning how best to promote local-level coordination. An appendix to the report contains an annotated list of available products developed during the demonstration program. (Author/LL)
