The article focuses on the National Manpower Policy Task Force that was organized in 1964 with a primary interest in studies and research in manpower policy. The Task Force has devoted a major portion of its efforts to working with the Office of Manpower Policy, Evaluation and Research of the U.S. Department of Labor in identifying needs and priorities in manpower research. As parts of this activity, the Task Force sponsors few assessments of research in key manpower policy areas. Some of them are, Youth Employment and Unemployment, Discrimination in Employment, Manpower Models. The Task Force is also involved in providing assistance and consultation on manpower policy issues through discussions, seminars and briefings with policymakers in the U.S. Congress and the federal government as well as with state and local officials. A major concern of the National Manpower Policy Task Force is to explore and develop mechanisms for bridging the gap between the academic community and government agencies.
