Title :
  An Evaluation of the Individual Training Account/Eligible Training Provider Demonstration: Final Interim Report
Release Date :
Abstract :
  The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 requires that, with certain exceptions, training services be delivered through the use of Individual Training Accounts (ITAs), which participants can use to procure the training of their choice, so long as the training program is on a state¿s eligible training provider (ETP) list. In March 2000, the U.S. Department of Labor made grant awards to thirteen states and local areas as part of the ITA/ETP Demonstration, to provide support for ITA and ETP system development and encourage innovative approaches and practices. This paper presents interim findings from the evaluation of these grantees?efforts. As such, it describes at about the midpoint of the grants?period of performance what ITA policies and practices were being formulated, how ETP lists were being assembled, and what information was available in the consumer report systems, a repository of information about eligible programs that customers can use to make training choices.
