Recommendation Details
Text of Recommendation
We recommend the Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training Administration improve funding opportunity announcements for discretionary grant programs by: a. Evaluating program goals using the SMART concept or a similar approach, and including required metrics that directly measure the success of each program goal, are clear, and are easily verifiable; b. Having a scoring element covering completeness of applicant proposals for items requested in the announcement that reduces in points when the proposal is missing an element(s), significantly changes the wording of an element(s), or incorrectly addresses an element(s); and c. Identifying targeted occupations in the FOA language and/or scoring elements, or requiring submission of the career pathway to an H-1B occupation as support during apprenticeship program registrations or apprentice registrations
