Coordination Concepts. A Guide to Linking JTPA with Local Resources.
Texas State Dept. of Community Affairs, Austin. Training and Employment Development Div.
This technical assistance guide was developed to assist Service Delivery Areas (SDAs) and Private Industry Councils (PICs) to develop local coordination activities and to enhance their ongoing coordination efforts. The guide is organized in five sections. The first section introduces the guide and defines "coordination." It is followed by a section describing the foundation of coordination, including the legislation requiring it and the Governor's Coordination and Special Services Plan in Texas. The third section provides an overview of state-level coordination and profiles the Texas method of coordination; it then provides examples of interagency coordination matrixes. In the fourth section, planning for coordination at the local level is discussed. Topics covered include the concept of coordination, human services delivery systems, issues, and the Job Training Partnership delivery systems. The coordination process is outlined in the fifth, and final section of the guide. This section includes five steps (identifying the needs, establishing agency profiles, types of coordination, facilitators and barriers, and action worksheets), an example of an interagency agreement, and a SDA compliance document.
