Greenleigh Associates, Inc., New York, NY.
Part One of this report summarizes the detailed data and findings of Part Two (VT 005 949). A thoroughly documented analysis of federally supported job training programs in terms of their scope, interrelationships, and administration (including inter- and intra-agency coordination) led to 25 recommendations, including: (1) Consolidation of program administration in a single Cabinet-level agency, newly formed or existing, is not desirable or appropriate at this time, (2) An office should be established within the Department of Labor to expedite and implement equal opportunity in all federally supported manpower programs, (3) Resources for training programs should be expanded, with funding sufficient to make significant inroads in the problems they seek to remedy, (4) A time period longer than 12 months is desirable for funding programs, along with simplification of the refunding process, and (5) Planning grants should be made available to state and/or local governments for the development of comprehensive manpower plans, incorporating education, work, and training programs with the necessary sequential linkages and related manpower services. Each recommendation is supported by a synopsis of relevant findings. Five appendixes contain excerpts from selected literature pertaining to manpower policy. See also VT 006 507. (ET)
