Full report in PDF format

  • Several factors have and will continue to contribute to JEP's inability to fully develop the workforce development system. These include lack of clarity in the roles and responsibilities of JEP and other workforce partners, a shift in emphasis from preparing individuals for high skill/high wage jobs to accommodating the "work first" philosophy of welfare reform, and the inherent difficulty of overseeing a system comprising multiple programs and funding streams.
  • In light of recent changes in federal legislation that are consistent with Florida's workforce development strategy and will increase JEP's capacity to oversee the further integration of the system, the Legislature should continue JEP.
