Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
A study examined the organization and implementation of Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) programs at the state and local levels. Data for the study were obtained from a questionnaire given to JTPA program administrators in the 50 States, the territories, and the District of Columbia. In addition, the Government Accounting Office (GAO) visited 15 local service delivery areas in 8 States. Data pertaining to the following areas of program design and implementation were collected and analyzed: State and local delivery systems, State councils, State administrative agencies, service delivery area (SDA) designations, State coordination, membership of local private industry councils (PICs), SDA grant recipients and administrative entities, groups targeted for service, client selection, supportive services and needs-based payments, training and service contracts, and program evaluation. (This report includes 21 tables of data as well as appendixes detailing the following: types of SDAs visited, JTPA Title II-A allocations for the first nine months of the program, States and SDAs visited, and the verbatim comments of the Department of Labor regarding the GAO's evaluation of JTPA implementation.)
