The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Neighborhood Employment Network Affiliate and Minnesota Family Investment Program Performance Management Study.

Brinda, Michael, and Thomas J. Norman.

This report is intended to assist vendors of employment and training services in Minneapolis and Hennepin County in better understanding the factors that have contributed to changes in quarterly levels of performance. Further, the report makes recommendations that may prove useful as management tools in helping to address internal and external factors that are known to directly affect a vendor's performance. The report finds that the overall performance has been exemplary. Despite changes in operational rules and the tragic events of September 11, the overall performance in MFIP and NET programs evaluated since 2000 has been at a B grade level. The performance of the NET programs taken alone has been slightly higher at a B+ level. The authors provide recommendations for program improvement.
