SUBJECT : Revisions to Technical Assistance Guide for Service Delivery Area Monitoring of Service Providers Under the Job Training Partnership Act

 

  1. Purpose. To provide revisions to the technical assistance guide (TAG) for service delivery area (SDA) monitoring of service providers under the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) issued on October 21, 1992.

  2. References. (a) JTPA Amendments of 1992, and (b) Training and Employment Information Notice (TEIN) No. 12-92, October 21, 1992.

  3. Background. In October 1992, ETA issued a three-volume Technical Assistance Guide (TAG) that SDAs could chose to use for monitoring of their service providers. The three volumes are:

    In TEIN No. 12-92, which transmitted the TAG to the States, we indicated that the modules were flexible and were meant o be modified by SDAs to fit particular circumstances and to be responsive to changing policies. Diskettes in Wordperfect 5.1 containing the entire TAG were provided with each hard copy TAG to facilitate modification as necessary. In view of the recently enacted JTPA Amendments of 1992 that become effective on July 1, 1993, ETA has made some revisions to reflect the new law.

  4. Revisions. Attached are copies of the pages of the TAG that have been revised. Using the applicable diskettes users are encouraged to make the corrections indicated on the pages. The following instructions will guide the user through the revisions process:

    3. Text to be inserted is found within brackets, and follows "insert:."

    4. If deletions and insertions are made as instructed, page formats will be maintained, except where noted. Do not change the page numbers in Volume III since Volume II references page numbers in Volume III. Two types of format changes are required as a result of the revisions:

    5. You may wish to document the year the revisions were made. This is done on the pages illustrating changes by the page number (e.g., Page 2 (1993).
