Program History

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.
The California CAMPS network consisted of approximately 400 representatives of federal, state, and local agencies. This included the National CAMPS Committee in Washington, D.C.; the Regional Manpower Coordinating Committee in San Francisco; the California Manpower Planning Council, which was known as the California Manpower Coordinating Committee from 1967 until 1973; seven Ancillary Manpower Planning Boards; and fifteen Manpower Area Planning Councils. The participating federal agencies included the Dept. of Agriculture, Dept. of Labor, Civil Service Commission, Dept. of Commerce, Office of Economic Opportunity, and Dept. of Interior. The participating state agencies included the Dept. of Corrections, Office of Economic Opportunity, Dept. of Education, and Dept. of Employment.
The California CAMPS program operated in coordination with a national system of manpower planning. Since the federal government provided much of the funding for California's manpower programs, the state agencies operated in accordance with federal goals and accountability standards. The responsibilities of each state agency within the CAMPS program were established by their federal counterparts. The California Manpower Planning Council, Ancillary Manpower Planning Boards, and Manpower Area Planning Councils gathered and analyzed data on economic trends, manpower problems, and occupational projections in order to link manpower programs. The findings were submitted annually in a comprehensive report to the Regional Manpower Coordinating Committee and the National CAMPS Committee.

Scope and Content

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 largest subgroup within this collection is the California Manpower Planning Council. The council was responsible for providing information and guidance to the Ancillary Manpower Planning Boards and the Manpower Area Planning Councils. It was also responsible for preparing the annual California Manpower Plan for the Regional Manpower Coordinating Committee and the National CAMPS Committee. The plans include information on economic trends and occupational projections within California. Other series within this record subgroup include Correspondence, Meeting Minutes, Executive Secretaries Meeting Minutes, and Non-Metropolitan Area Subcommittee Meeting Minutes.
The collection also contains information on the topics discussed and debated by the participating agencies of the CAMPS network. Meeting minutes are available for the Regional Manpower Coordinating Committee, the Ancillary Manpower Planning Boards, and the Manpower Area Planning Councils. The meeting minutes of the Regional Manpower Coordinating Committee include information on economic trends and legislative developments. The meeting minutes of the Ancillary Manpower Planning Boards and the Manpower Area Planning Councils include regional data and information on manpower issues in specific sections of California.
