The Cooperative Area Manpower Planning System records consist of 2.5 cubic feet of textual records created between 1967 and
1975. The collection is organized into the following record subgroups: Regional Manpower Coordinating Committee, California
Manpower Planning Council, Ancillary Manpower Planning Boards, and Manpower Area Planning Councils.
The Cooperative Area Manpower Planning System (CAMPS) was initiated on March 3, 1967, by Interagency Cooperative Issuance
No. 1. Its purpose was to facilitate federal, state, and local coordination of human resources development and anti-poverty
programs which cut across departmental and agency lines. Its main objectives were to achieve cooperation in the administration
of programs with similar purposes, to plan a coordinated program of needed manpower services, and to provide implementation
of programmed operations. Participation was voluntary during the first year of the program's existence. In 1968, President
Lyndon B. Johnson issued Executive Order 11422, which made participation mandatory for state and federal agencies.
