- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on each of 163 employment training programs, focusing on: (1) fiscal year 1995 appropriations; (2) summary of the program purpose as it relates to employment training activities; (3) authorizing legislation; (4) program target groups; and (5) type of employment training assistance provided.
GAO found that: (1) the current number of employment training programs has increased to 163 since 1991; (2) the current system wastes resources and confuses and frustrates clients, employers, and administrators; and (3) some programs serve more than one target group or provide more than one type of assistance.
