Jones said the review will focus on who the program should serve, what services should be provided, how the quality of service can be improved, how the management tools used in the program canbe enhanced and whether the JTPA should be coordinated more closely with non-JTPA services and serve other national priorities.

Other members of the committee will represent the JTPA system, education, public interest groups, community organizations, business, labor, veterans and the general public.
