There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  Evaluation of the Defense Conversion Adjustment Demonstration: Interim Report on Implementation
Release Date :
Abstract :
  Berkeley Planning Associates (BPA) and Social Policy Research Associates (SPR) are conducting an ongoing Evaluation of the Defense Conversion Adjustment (DCA) Demonstration. This Interim Report includes information from initial site visits conducted during late 1993 and early 1994 to the twelve Round 1 demonstration grantees, whose initial 18-month grants ran from January 1993 through June 1994. The Interim Report highlights the key design features of the Round 1 demonstration projects and summarizes implementation experiences during their first 12 to 14 months.

The Interim Report includes four chapters. The first chapter introduces the study, presenting both the historical and conceptual background for the demonstration and the evaluation. The second chapter describes and assesses the experiences of the five projects in the demonstration that focused on averting layoffs by intervening at the firm level: the dislocation aversion approach. The third chapter examines the experiences of the five projects that emphasized providing employment and training services to dislocated defense industry workers: the worker mobility approach. The fourth chapter describes the two projects that focused on assessing and planning for the employment and training needs of workers affected by base closures: the community planning approach. Bach of the three chapters begins with cross-project analysis of the goals, targeting, recruitment and delivery of services, followed by descriptive profiles of the projects.

In January 1994 a new cohort of seven grantees joined the original twelve reported here, with grants running through June 1995. Although this report was written before these new projects were underway, the evaluation now includes these Round 2 grantees, and subsequent reports will address the achievements of all nineteen grantees. The next report will be submitted to the Department of Labor in early 1995.
