Nilsen, Sigurd R. (2002). Workforce Investment Act: Coordination between TANF Programs and One-Stop Centers Is Increasing, but Challenges Remain. Statement of Sigurd R. Nilsen, Director, Education, Workforce, and Income Security Issues [to the] Subcommittee on 21st Century Competitiveness, Committee on Education and the Workforce, House of Representatives. The General Accounting Office assessed the extent to which states were coordinating their Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) services with their one-stop centers. Data were gathered through the following activities: (1) an autumn 2001 survey of workforce development agency officials in all 50 states and a similar survey conducted in spring 2000; (2) visits to 4 states and 9 localities in January 2002; and (3) telephone interviews with state TANF and workforce officials in 12 states in January-February 2002. The assessment established that coordination between TANF-related programs and one-stop centers had increased since spring 2000, when the Workforce Investment Act was first implemented. Nearly all states reported some coordination between TANF and one-stop programs at the state or local level. Coordination occurred most often through co-location of TANF-related programs and local one-stops or through referrals and electronic linkages to off-site programs. Service delivery depended on state and local preferences and conditions. Despite their progress, states and localities continued to report various challenges to coordination. Infrastructure limitations and multiple, sometimes conflicting, program requirements were two major sources of such challenges. It was concluded that, although the former could be overcome through state and local innovation, resolution of the latter would require federal intervention.   [More]  Descriptors: Agency Cooperation, Cooperative Planning, Coordination, Definitions
