Aims to identify outcome-based efficiency measures for implementation by the 11 ETA-administered programs.
"In 2007, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) required the development of efficiency measures for all federal government programs as part of the effort to improve federal government program performance. As a result of Program Assessment Rating Tool reviews, OMB asked the Employment and Training Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor to develop and implement an outcome-based measure or measures of efficiency for employment and training programs administered by the agency. In response to this OMB directive, in May 2008, ETA initiated a study to identify outcome-based efficiency measures for implementation by 11 ETA-administered programs: Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Adult Program; WIA Dislocated Worker Program; WIA Youth Activities Program; WIA National Emergency Grants Program; Trade Adjustment Assistance Program; Wagner-Peyser/Employment Service (ES) Program; Senior Community Service Employment Program National Farmworker Jobs Program Indian and Native American Program Work Incentive Grant Program; and Apprenticeship Program" (Abstract).
