Job Corps Oversight: Recruitment and Placement Standards. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Human Resources of the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fifth Congress, First Session (October 23, 1997).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight.
This congressional hearing focuses on a General Accounting Office (GAO) examination of the Department of Labor's management of Job Corps recruitment and placement contractors. Its focuses are how the contractors demand and measure success in two of the four strategy areas--client commitment and client placement in a job with long-term potential--and the need pointed out in the study's results for a stronger focus on performance and accountability in both areas. Testimony includes statements, letters, and other materials submitted for the record by the following: Representatives in Congress from the States of Virginia, Tennessee, Connecticut, and New York; Associate Directors, Education and Employment Issues, GAO; Deputy Inspector General and Assistant Inspector General, Department of Labor (DOL); Director, Office of Job Corps, DOL; and individuals representing the Clearfield Job Corps Center; Hubert H. Humphrey Job Corps Center; and David L. Carrasco Job Corps Center. (YLB)
