Implementation of the Job Training Partnership Act in Montana. A Report to the 53rd Legislature from the Job Training Partnership Act Review Committee.
Gomez, Tom; Niss, David S.
In 1991-1992, the Montana state legislature's Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Review Committee evaluated implementation of JTPA in Montana. The committee gathered background information on JTPA and state laws and programs implementing the federal programs and heard testimony on the plans and state job training programs. After 3 meetings, the committee made 23 recommendations and comments to the state organizations responsible for the plans and programs. The recommendations and comments on the state coordination and special services plan focused on the following: the lack of criteria for determining existing and needed coordination steps, the appropriateness of certain services and their relationships to the purposes of JTPA, coordination of the activities of Private Industry Councils (PICs) and state organizations, the use of incentive grants by PICs, the accuracy of estimated training costs per participant, and changes in the list of target groups of persons to be served by JTPA. As of 1990, JTPA served approximately 7,000 Montana residents at a cost of approximately $12.5 million. (Appendixes include a review of past performance audit work regarding JTPA programs, recommended performance standards for improving JTPA plan auditability, a review of coordination among job training programs in Montana, and 23 recommendations and comments.)
