Abstract:

The Department of Labors Office of National Programs administers about 600 million each fiscal year in grant and contract awards under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act and the Older Americans Act for employment, training, and related services. GAO undertook this review to assess how well the Office carried out its administrative processes. During the review, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources requested that GAO address its report to him. GAO reviewed a statistical sample of 175 awards from an estimated universe of 479 awards or major funding decisions made in fiscal year 1979. The 1979 awards were chosen because, at the time fieldwork was done, they were in place long enough to evaluate the Offices administration of them. Author
