How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Task Force was established by section 8 of Executive Order (EO) 13801 on June 15, 2017 which directed the Secretary of Labor to establish a panel to provide advice and guidance on promoting and expanding apprenticeship. The Task Force was charged with identifying strategies and proposals to promote apprenticeships in sectors where the apprenticeship model has not made a significant impact. The Task Force focused on four strategic areas: (1) federal initiatives to promote apprenticeships; (2) administrative and legislative reforms; (3) strategies for creating industry-recognized apprenticeships; and (4) amplifying and encouraging private-sector initiatives. To accomplish its purpose, the Task Force convened five meetings: (1) November 13, 2017; (2) February 6, 2018; (3) March 15, 2018; (4) April 10, 2018; (5) May 10, 2018; and held bi-weekly subcommittee calls.
How is membership balanced?*Membership came from a cross-section of those directly affected, interested, and qualified as appropriate to the nature and functions of the Task Force. The Task Force included individuals that represent the perspectives of trade and industry groups; non-profit organizations; companies; unions; joint-labor management organizations; educational institutions; and state or local governments.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Task Force convened five meetings (three in-person and two virtual), as time and resources permitted. Its inaugural meeting was held on November 13, 2017. Following the inaugural meeting, the Task Force developed subcommittees focused on four discrete areas of concern: (1) Expanding Access, Equity, and Career Awareness; (2) Administrative and Regulatory Strategies to Expand Apprenticeship; (3) Attracting Business to Apprenticeship; and (4) Education and Credentialing. The four subsequent Task Force meetings focused on updates from the subcommittees, full committee discussions, and final deliberations.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Task Force was a unique body of high-level executives that represented the perspectives of American companies, trade or industry groups, educational institutions, and labor unions. The Secretary of Labor chaired the Task Force, and the Secretaries of Commerce and Education served as Vice Chairs. The Task Force considered testimony, reports, comments, research, evidence, and existing practices as appropriate to develop recommendations for inclusion in its final report to the President.
Why close or partially close meetings?Not Applicable
Recommendation RemarksPer its establishing EO, the Task Force sunset on June 9, 2018, 30 days after submitting its report to the President. Pursuant to section 6(b) of FACA, the Department of Labor will develop a one-year status report to Congress on the implementation of the Task Force’s recommendations. The report is expected in FY20.
