Department of State additional steps are needed to improve strategic planning and evaluation of training for State personnel : report to the Honorable Daniel K. Akaka, U.S. Senate by United States ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Because the U.S. Department of State (State) is the lead U.S. foreign affairs agency, its personnel require certain knowledge, skills, and abilities to address the global challenges and security threats facing the United States. State devoted about $255 million to personnel training in fiscal year 2010; the department's Foreign Service Institute (FSI) is the primary training provider for State's more than 66,000 Foreign Service, civil service, and locally employed staff (LE staff) worldwide. GAO was asked to examine (1) State's purpose and structure for training personnel and (2) the extent to which State's training incorporates elements for effective training programs. GAO reviewed and analyzed data and documentation related to the agency's training efforts; completed a training assessment using a tool developed based on prior GAO guidance; and interviewed officials in Washington, D.C., and at 12 overseas posts. GAO is making several recommendations for State to improve strategic planning and evaluation of the department's efforts to train personnel, including for improvements to State's efforts to assess training needs and efforts to ensure training achieves desired results. State reviewed a draft of this report and generally agreed with our recommendations

Information Technology: Leading Commercial Practices for Outsourcing of Services ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Department of Defense (DOD) is the federal government's largest consumer of information technology (IT) resources, spending almost $22 billion on IT in fiscal year 2001. For this reason, it is critical that DOD adopt effective IT acquisition practices. To better understand commercial IT acquisition practices and how they potentially compare with those used at DOD, we reviewed existing research, held discussions with academic and professional authorities, and interviewed executives and managers at leading commercial organizations about their IT acquisition decisionmaking and management activities. We used this information plus the extensive research and trade literature available on IT acquisition practices to develop a consensus view of what is critical to success when acquiring IT services. On October 31, 2001, we provided the results of our study to your offices via electronic mall. These results are included as an appendix to this letter. The purpose of this letter is to officially transmit the information to you in published form. In brief, we present a generic framework of practices from leading commercial organizations, which use the term outsourcing to describe activities associated with acquiring IT services. The framework is composed of a set of leading practices that represent those most critical to successful outsourcing. Grouped into seven common phases, the practices and underlying critical success factors define an IT outsourcing process

Military Transformation: Progress and Challenges for DOD's Advanced Distributed Learning Programs ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Department of Defense (DOD) spends more than $17 billion annually for military schools that offer nearly 30,000 military training courses to almost 3 million military personnel and DOD civilians, much of it to maintain readiness. To better meet the diverse defense challenges of the future, DOD is transforming its forces, including its training, for a post-Cold War environment that favors more rapid deployment and responsiveness. DOD's Training Transformation Strategy emphasizes the use of advanced distributed learning (ADL) programs such as Internet-based training as critical to achieving the department's training and overarching transformation goals and to deliver the highest quality training cost effectively anytime, anywhere, whether active duty, reserve, or civilian personnel. ADL is instruction that does not require an instructor's presence; can use more than one media; and emphasizes the use of reusable content, networks, and learning management systems. The authors initiated this review of DOD's ADL programs, pursuant to their basic legislative responsibilities, because of the importance DOD has placed on them as a key to achieving the department's transformation efforts. Specifically, they addressed the following questions: (1) What are DOD's expectations for the programs? (2) How is DOD managing ADL and what progress is being made in implementing the programs? and (3) What major challenges are affecting the programs' implementation? The authors did not assess the effectiveness of the programs at this time because most are in the early stages of implementation; thus, their objective was to provide a baseline document concerning the focus, status, and magnitude of DOD's ADL programs. In late August and early September 2002, GAO briefed Congress on the results of their work. This report summarizes and updates the major observations provided at those briefings. Army, Navy, and Marine Corps, Air Force, and Joint Staff ADL plans are included
