The guidelines presented in this report propose an efficient architecture for structuring the huge volume of information flow necessary to manage and administer the several labor market programs operated by the SOLO (System of Labor Offices). The proposal includes a recommendation for the sequence of events in developing the many parts of the system which exploits the latest technical and methodological possibilities, but recognizes the practical constraints of time and money. At the heart of the proposed automated management information system (MIS) to support planning, evaluation, and budgeting for labor market programs in Poland is a set of performance indicators. These performance indicators are the main instrument for monitoring the effectiveness of the several programs. The use of performance indicators will allow a standardized assessment of program performance across voivods, local offices, and programs which is not provided by other methods of evaluation.
