Under the authority of Article III, Sections 1 and 24 of the Alaska Constitution and AS 44.17.060, I hereby designate the Alaska Department of Labor as the agency responsible for the implementation of an occupational information system to meet the common needs for the planning and operation of programs authorized by the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act, 20 USC § 2301 et. seq., as it may be amended from time to time.
WHEREAS the Alaska Department of Labor serves, in accordance with Section 125 of the Job Training Partnership Act (P.L. 97-300), as the state agency responsible for the oversight and management of a statewide comprehensive labor market and occupational supply and demand information system.
I find that the designation of the Alaska Department of Labor as the provider of occupational information under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act will further promote and enhance the availability of occupational information for education, employment, and training opportunities for residents of the state.
FURTHERMORE, I designate the Alaska Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (committee) as the committee responsible for improving coordination and communication among administrators and planners of programs authorized by the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act and the Job Training Partnership Act, employment security administrators, research personnel, and personnel of employment and training planning and administering agencies (including apprenticeship training agencies).
I find that the designation of this committee will promote the use of occupational information for education, employment, and training opportunities for residents of the state.
This order takes effect on May 13, 1987.
DATED at Juneau, Alaska, this 13 day of May,1987.
