Frequency: Semi-Annually.

Data Validated By: No Formal Verification.

Limitations: The number of products is a duplicated count; that is, it accounts for multiple copies of the same product being disseminated to one or more customers.
 
Explanation: The FY 2004 target for the number of customers receiving technical assistance was exceeded. The FY 2004 target for the number of products disseminated to customers was not met. In FY 2005, we expanded the definition of the ''number of customers receiving technical assistance'' to include, in addition to the customers trained, the participants in other ACRN activities, Career Information Delivery System users, and users of Web-based products. This accounts for the huge increase in the number of customers receiving technical assistance.
