Abstract:

The Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers Association in Virginia operates programs that provide employment and training services to farmworkers. GAO could not adequately evaluate the Associations performance because of data reporting problems. Many program goals and performance standards, however, were not met according to reported data. The Department of Labor did not enforce compliance with agreed upon goals and standards, and it provided little monitoring of the Associations activities. GAOs recommendations are intended to improve Labors management of grants to the Association and Labors migrant grantee selection process.
