Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed how federal employment training programs serving the same target populations differ concerning: (1) eligibility requirements; and (2) annual operating cycles.

GAO found that: (1) many employment training programs use several different standards for defining eligibility requirements; (2) most program administrators want to standardize the terms used to determine program eligibility; (3) differences in annual operating cycles hamper program administrators' ability to ensure that participants receive the services they need; and (4) as a result of differences in operating cycles, administrators may not be able to coordinate their plans to ensure that needed resources are available to serve their clients.
