This document presents the principal findings and recommendations of a study conducted by the Committee on Evaluation of Employment and Training Program to assess the impact of CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) on manpower programs. This report is divided into two parts. Part 1 provides an overview of CETA's history, summarizes CETA's objectives, and presents a summary of the committee's conclusions in relation to accomplishments, problems and recommendations, and policy issues. (A more comprehensive staff report, CE 018 819, is also available.) Part 2 presents the major findings and recommendations of the committee under the following categories: allocation of resources; substantive aspects of CETA programs; administrative processes; and institutional relationships. A brief discussion of the related social, economic, or institutional issues are included with each topic. Finally, the recommendations of the committee are summarized under two categories: (1) processes and institutional aspects of CETA; and (2) program substance and outcomes. The appendix contains a glossary of manpower acronyms. (BM)
