SUBJECT : New Publication -- "The Five-Year Strategic Plan for Pilots, Demonstrations, Research, and Evaluations"

 

  1. Purpose. To announce the Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (USDOL/ETA) publication entitled "The Five-Year Strategic Plan for Pilots, Demonstrations, Research, and Evaluations."

  2. Background. Under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, a five-year strategic plan for the USDOL/ETA is to be prepared every two years. The intent of the Plan is to identify potential pilot, demonstration, research, and evaluation projects, including multistate and multiservice projects, that will help guide the USDOL/ETA in expanding skills and opportunities for U.S. employers and workers as it implements the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and related ETA programs.

  3. Five-Year Strategic Plan. This plan provides a strategic vision for research efforts based upon extensive input from stakeholders, a review of recent research efforts, an identifi- cation of areas where future research may be needed, and a review of possible research methodologies. This is the first five-year Research Plan for the USDOL/ETA, which was transmitted to the Congress, and covers the period of July 2000 through June 2005.
