Bridgeport Area Manpower Information Systems Project.
Sedich, Jerry Y.; Valakas, John N.
This report explains the Bridgeport Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) manpower information systems project. Three components of the project are considered: (1) The automated manpower management information system (MIS), which incorporates a cost-effectiveness analysis algorithm and permits a limited amount of impact and outcome analysis, and which replaces the manual system, which is incapable of effective and efficient operational control and monitoring due to the large number of CETA clients in the Bridgeport area; (2) the labor market information system (LMIS), which consists of an automated economic index generator and an automated shift and shares model, providing an excellent tool to analyze the economic health in the Bridgeport area and offering planners timely and relevant information for the decisionmaking process; and (3) a labor market supply/demand survey of the Bridgeport area, which serves as input for LMIS. The report concludes with a proposal to link the MIS and LMIS sub-systems into one comprehensive manpower information system. (Author/WL)
