Workforce Programs

February 17, 2010

Our evaluation found that participants in some of Minnesota’s workforce programs have experienced positive outcomes. But the fragmented administration and funding of the workforce system have weakened accountability and produced gaps in service. Changes are needed to better integrate programs, close service gaps, and provide stronger oversight.


*Supplemental Item (This did not appear in the printed report.)
It includes (1) performance results for select workforce programs, (2) the methodology for our comparison of workforce program participants with statistically matched nonparticipants, and (3) the methodology and results from our surveys of individuals using workforce services.
