Conclusion

The NOICC/SOICC structure is unique in government. As a network it has achieved coordination and cooperation unthought of less than a decade ago. The innovations of the state committees reduce costs to other states and add to NOICC's capability to lead. Similarly, NOICC provides leadership and funds to decrease costs to states. Working together, efficient computerized delivery systems have been installed in most states. Planners and counselors have more and accurate information at their fingertips including information in formats never before available.

The NOICC/SOICC experiment has worked. Congress has recognize this by reauthorizing the network in both education and labor legislation adding to the membership and adding to the mandates.

Although much has been achieved, considerably more needs to be accomplished for the network to reach its goals, including the potential to aid youth and adults to become full participants in the work force.
