Interagency Working Group on U.S. Government-Sponsored International Exchanges and Training. 1997 Annual Report.
Interagency Working Group on U.S. Government-Sponsored International Exchanges and Training, Washington, DC.; United States Information Agency, Washington, DC. Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
The Interagency Working Group on U.S. Government-Sponsored International Exchanges and Training (IAWG) was created through Executive Order 13055 in 1997 to recommend to the President measures for improving the coordination, efficiency, and effectiveness of U.S. government-sponsored international exchanges and training. The IAWG's four goals for the first year were to collect, analyze, and report data from U.S. government agencies; promote cooperation and understanding on common issues; identify administrative and programmatic duplication of activities by various government agencies; and develop and assess a coordinated strategy for all U.S. government-sponsored international exchanges and training activities. The IAWG was also asked to develop recommendations on performance measures and develop strategies for expanding public and private sector partnerships. This report's eight chapters provide data on: (1) Mandates, (2) Programs of Science and Technology Agencies, (3) Defense Programs, (4) Common Issues and Challenges, (5) Partnerships, (6) Duplication and Overlap, (7) Clearinghouse Issues, and (8) Strategies and Priorities. The four appendixes contain Executive Order 13055, letters concerning coverage of the Executive Order, mandates, and an inventory of programs. (SM)
