Progress and Problems in Allocating Funds Under Titles I and II--Comprehensive Employment and Training Act.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The review of the funding aspect of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA) under Titles 1 and 2 was conducted by the General Accounting Office (GAO). Title 1 of the Act authorizes comprehensive manpower services to be provided by prime sponsors, and Title 2 is designed to provide transitional employment opportunities and public services in unemployment areas and to enable enrollees to obtain jobs not supported under this title. The review focuses on: (1) the legislative history of CETA, (2) the appropriation of Title 1 funds for fiscal year 1975 and Title 2 funds for fiscal years 1974 and 1975, and (3) the Department of Labor's policies and procedures for allocating these funds. The review is based upon an examination of records and interviews with officials at the Department of Labor headquarters and four regional offices as well as with certain State and local officials in California, Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Virginia. The methodology for generating unemployment data used to make the allocations is briefly discussed. Appended materials include: (1) an example of the effect of the trade-off factor in fiscal year 1974 Title 2 allocations, and (2) a response to the GAO report by the Department of Labor. (Author/EC)
