Based upon a research project by a private nonprofit organization, this report provides a general analysis of findings from onsite studies in nine States of CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) Special Grants to Governors (Rhode Island, New Jersey, West Virginia, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Texas, California, Washington). The report begins with a 6-page summary of the findings, followed by detailed examinations of specific aspects of the study: (1) Assessments of State Manpower Services Councils (SMSC) operations, activities, and staff support, with emphasis on State prime sponsor functions and SMSC responsibilities envisioned under CETA section 107 and supported by 1% allocations, (2) identification of State manpower services and other special projects authorized under CETA section 106 and supported by 4% funds for State services, with emphasis on the extent to which these funds have been used to further the aims expressed in CETA sections 106(b) and 106(c), and (3) analysis of planning procedures, program activities, and results associated with State sponsor administration of CETA 5% grants for vocational education services, with emphasis on decisionmaking procedures and relationships involving State sponsors, local sponsors, and State vocational education boards. The report concludes with observations and recommendations for improving special grants activities. Seven supporting tables are interspersed throughout the 85-page report. (BL)
