This guide is the first in a series of interpretive explanations of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA). It is designed to provide practitioners and business leaders involved in state and local employment and training programs with an understanding of how to implement the public-private partnership of JTPA. This first edition does the following: (1) explains the basic authorities and provisions of the JTPA; (2) outlines the timetable and process for implementing JTPA; and (3) identifies federal regulatory issues that will be addressed by the Department of Labor in developing regulations for JTPA. The guide is organized into five major sections. The first section contains an analysis of JTPA, including the provisions for state and local delivery systems, the public/private partnership, authorized activities and use of funds, auditing and reporting, employment service activities, and state and federal activities and programs authorized by the law. In the second section, the transition to the new system created by JPTA is explained, providing timetables and charts for the start-up period. The third section explores Department of Labor implementation plans and policy guidance and includes an implementation schedule. The fourth section raises key regulatory issues related to the implementation of JTPA. The final section of the document contains the complete text of JTPA. (KC)
