State Department training needs work, says GAO
Friday - 3/11/2011, 4:12pm EST
The State Department spends over $250 million a year to train its professionals but lacks a good overall strategic plan to ensure that training is efficient and achieving the desired results, according to a new report.
The State Department lacks a comprehensive process to evaluate its training needs around the world, doesn't have overall guidance for how training should be organized and doesn't adequately measure whether or not its training is effective, the Government Accountability Office found in a report being released Tuesday, but obtained in advance by The Cable. The report is the subject of a Tuesday hearing of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight of Government Management, the Federal Workforce, and the District of Columbia, chaired by Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-HI).
