An Analysis of the Federal Bonding Program. Volume 2: Program Analysis. Final Report.
Contract Research Corp., Belmont, MA.
The Federal Bonding Program, providing fidelity bonding for individuals excluded from insurance policy bonding and thus ineligible for certain types of employment, is analyzed. The first section of the document contains a brief history of the program, a discussion of the data analysis approach, a series of 36 summary findings, conclusions, and recommendations. Two basic conclusions state: (1) the program appears to be achieving significant results for some ex-offenders at a relatively low cost, but there are insufficient data to determine program impact estimates; and (2) efforts to pinpoint who is best served, and why, should be made to improve program utilization. Operational characteristics are presented in detail in the second section, and include participant, utilization, and loss information. Data state that 6,655 bonds have been issued to 6,401 individuals, predominantly male, between June 1966 and July 1974. The third section deals with program results extensively, including information on an Illinois Case Study, bondee data, employer data, the insurance industry, and bondee employability. Forty-nine exhibits of tabulated data are included. Eight appendixes present additional information regarding conclusions, data, survey instruments, program descriptions, and Federal government activities. This is the second in a series of three documents. (LH)
