GAO reviewed federally supported employment and training assistance
programs available to out of school youth or adults not enrolled in
advanced degree programs. GAO found that: (1) 125 federal programs
provide various forms of employment and training assistance
totalling $16.3 billion; (2) specific programs are funded from
different sources and are counted more than once; (3) the
Department of Education administers 49 programs, totalling $8.1
billion, and the Department of Labor administers 30 programs,
totalling $5.7 billion; (4) most programs target specific
disadvantaged populations, provide counseling and assessment,
occupational training or job placement, and overlap in target
populations; and (5) reducing overlapping services and confusion
requires coordination and integration of program services,
modifying target group, reducing differing definitions in
administrative rules, and eliminating competition between programs.
