SUBJECT : Employment and Training Administration Proposed Strategic Plan

 

  1. Purpose. To distribute the Employment and Training Administration's request for comments on ETA's proposed Employment and Training Administration's Strategic Plan for FY 1998-2002.

  2. Background. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is continuing its widespread consultation process involving partners and stakeholders (as well as ETA staff). This process was initiated several years ago to solicit critical feedback on both ETA's goals and the early draft of the strategic plan required by the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). GPRA requires that all agencies submit their first strategic plan in September 1997, and that agencies consider the views and suggestions of their stakeholders, customers and other interested parties. ETA's current goals and comments received from previous consultations were considered in the development of the proposed long-range (five year) strategic plan.

    As part of the GPRA requirements, ETA also is preparing the first of five annual performance plans that will provide a road map to measure incremental progress in achieving its long-range goals.

    The feedback gained through this consultation process should provide valuable information for the development of this annual plan. The attached memorandum includes information on how to submit feedback.

  3. Action Required. Please distribute the attached memorandum from the Acting Assistant Secretary and the proposed strategic plan to appropriate officials within the State and to all Service Delivery Areas and Substate Areas within the State and encourage comments. Please invite them to share the plan with staff and with customers. In addition, please continue to take every opportunity to work closely with your Regional Administrator in efforts to develop or refine strategies for meeting and exceeding these goals.

  4. Inquiries. Direct inquiries to the appropriate ETA Regional Administrator or to the GPRA Group: Jack Rapport (202-219-6760), Bob Litman (202-219-8660 X179), Pat Carroll (202 219-8680 X139) or Erica Cantor (202-219-6770).

  5. Attachments. Memorandum from Acting Assistant Secretary Uhalde and the ETA Proposed Strategic Plan for FY 1998-2002
