An Analysis of the Federal Bonding Program. Summary. Final Report.
Contract Research Corp., Belmont, MA.
A summary of the final report analyzing the Federal Bonding Program includes an overview, historical summary and analysis, summary of findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The bonding program provides fidelity bonding for individuals who are normally excluded from insurance policy bonding, including ex-offenders, enabling them to work at jobs for which they would be otherwise ineligible. Data analysis, research methodology and objectives, agency nomenclature, data utilization, categories, limitations, and a case study are discussed in the overview. The material in the historical summary and analysis sections is presented in considerably greater detail in Volume 1 of the final report, Program History. The bases for the summary of findings, conclusions, and recommendation sections are presented in Volume 2 of the final report, Program Analysis. The program's origins began with the passage of the Manpower Development and Training Act in 1962, with subsequent legislation authorizing the bonding program in 1965. Two basic conclusions state: (1) the program appears to be achieving significant results for some ex-offenders at a relatively low cost, but there is 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.
