Pilot Comprehensive Manpower Program; Implications of Its Experience for Local and State Manpower Organization.
Hallman, Howard W.
The Department of Labor has embarked upon a series of pilot projects known as the Comprehensive Manpower Program (CMP) in order to test means for implementing manpower services delivery systems serving whole labor market areas. The CMP provides five metropolitan models, based upon variations in number of counties within the SMSA and types of eligible prime sponsors, but it has no models for several other sizable groups of metropolitan areas. The three statewide CMP projects provide models which might be useful in states where SMSA population is less than 50 percent but not in the states with a majority of residents living in metropolitan areas. However, the CMP state projects provide useful experience for manpower organization in nonmetropolitan districts in all states. (Author)
