Review of Enterprise Florida Jobs and Education Partnership. Report No. 95-16.
Florida State Legislature, Tallahassee. Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability.
The Enterprise Florida Jobs and Education Partnership was developed to create and maintain a highly skilled work force able to respond to rapidly changing technology and market opportunities essential to a competitive Florida economy. A review of the partnership found the following: (1) the partnership has adopted a research design as required by statute, although outcome measures were developed for only three of its goals; (2) the partnership is coordinating with the Florida Education and Training Placement Information Program to obtain data for evaluating the program's outcomes; (3) the partnership has carried out various activities in coordinating and overseeing state work force training programs, such as development and oversight for the Performance-based Incentive Funding Program and coordinating efforts to identify occupations that are in demand in Florida's economy and related job training programs designed to prepare individuals for these occupations; and (4) it is still too early to determine if these activities will translate into improved outcomes for the disadvantaged. The following recommendations were made: develop outcome measures to evaluate the achievement of all its statutory goals; ensure the availability of all data needed to evaluate job training programs; coordinate with other agencies that administer work force development programs; and develop a system for monitoring performance of community colleges and school districts to ensure that partnership funds are used for maximum benefit.
