Local Official’s Guide to Economic Adjustments: DoD OEA Publications Include “Workforce Transitions” and “Business Transitions”
Nov 13, 2013
The Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) within the Department of Defense has posted an advisory on the Interagency Network of Enterprise Assistance Providers (INEAP) website today regarding the availability of publications that can benefit the execution of regional economic adjustment strategies.
These publications are framed within the context of job loss due to reductions in Defense spending; however, their themes are broadly applicable. They are intended to guide local leaders and their staff through the process of organizing, planning and carrying out regional economic adjustment strategies. The three shorter guides provide an overview of the organizing and planning process, approaches to assisting small and medium-size firms, and strategies for coordinating worker transitions. The larger guide covers these themes in greater depth. All emphasize the importance of local leadership and starting early.
Other groupings of content can be found under these headings on the OEA webpages:
