A brief guide to the "new profession" of manpower planning (the allocation of very limited resources for the delivery of a wide range of possible services), this report contains information about the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA) and serves as an outline, or planner's primer, for manpower planning. Eligibility for CETA, the services offered, and forbidden activities under the 1973 Act are discussed. The planner's primer covers topics such as problem analysis, the planner's staff and its responsibilities, developing a plan, charter for multi-county consortia (counties banding together with a charter detailing organization and duties), manpower delivery, a manpower planning evaluation formula, a list of planning sources, a logical sequence of planning steps, and a three-year staff output schedule. Flowcharts are included. (NH)
