(V-TECS is a consortium whose principal objective is to produce catalogs of performance objectives, and performance guides for use in vocational-technical curriculum development.) First, the function of catalogs in the V-TECS system is described. A report of the V-TECS director includes a status report on catalogs, references to staff, bylaws, policies, committee structure, technical reference handbook, catalog revision and selection, curriculum development, and membership. An explanation of V-TECS' organizational structures includes a flow chart and descriptions of the functions of the administering agency, board of directors, technical coordinator task force, central staff, technical coordinators, and the project director.
