  • Department of Labor Seeks Comment on Institutional Analysis of American Job Centers (AJC) Study

    The Department of Labor is seeking public comment by September 30 in the proposed Institutional Analysis of American Job Centers Study.

    Click here for the August 1, 2014 FEDERAL REGISTER notice with complete background.

    Excerpt:

    The goals of the Institutional Analysis of American Job Centers (AJCs) study are to systematically document key institutional characteristics of AJCs; present a comprehensive description of AJC funding, organization, administration and management, and service delivery structures and processes; and develop typologies of AJCs that capture the institutional variations documented.

    To achieve these goals, an in-depth institutional analysis will be conducted that systematically documents AJCs` operations across 10 research domains: (1) Administrative structure; (2) partnerships; (3) performance and strategic management; (4) staffing; (5) physical environment; (6) Management Information S system capacity and the use of technology, including electronic tools and resources; (7) service delivery structure and linkages; (8) the program and service mix provided; (9) outreach; and (10) funding. In addition, the study will consider external factors that are particularly important for understanding AJC structure, operations, policies, and processes. These include LWIBs and state-level workforce agencies that have administrative and oversight responsibilities over AJCs.

    This package requests clearance for: (1) Site visits to AJCs; (2) telephone interviews with state workforce administrators in states where site visits are conducted; and (3) a network analysis survey of selected study AJC partner organizations.
