Legislative Service Commission Study Committee on Job Training and Workforce Development. Final Report and Recommendations.
Ohio State Legislative Service Commission, Columbus.
This publication contains the final report of the task of the Ohio State Legislative Service Commission (LSC) Study Committee on Job Training and Workforce Development Programs. The task was to review the state's job training and workforce development programs and formulate a plan to centralize the programs under one state agency. Section 1 of the report is the Letter of Transmittal. Section 2 presents the final report with recommendations. It addresses the origins and mission of the study committee and describes study committee activities and federal reform legislation. The following six recommendations are made: (1) statutory creation of a single, cabinet-level point of accountability for the bulk of the job training and workforce development system operating in Ohio; (2) transfer of all state-operated or -funded workforce development activities and programs not currently under the jurisdiction of the current Bureau of Employment Services to the new agency; (3) establishment of a statewide advisory council; (4) appointment by the governor of 12 regional directors answerable to the agency's director; (5) creation of a local advisory council to be associated with each local regional director; and (6) ability of the new agency to contract with current agencies. Section 3 is the signature page. Section 4 contains the following appendixes: study committee minutes; seven LSC research memoranda summarizing individual state agency job training programs; research memorandum; and two LSC research memoranda on salaries of employees engaged in work force development and job training and workforce development agency structure.
