Establishing project steering committees that helped create interinstitutional communication and collaboration. The project established steering committees in each country consisting of key partner institutions in the government, academic, and private sectors. In Guatemala, an existing committee, the Oficina de Coordinación del Sistema Estadístico (National Employment Statistics Coordination Office) served as the steering committee. The main purpose of the committees was to guide the project to make adjustments and provide implementation advice. The steering committees provided a space for labor market information institutions to share information and collaborate on important initiatives such as updating the occupational and industrial classification systems. Prior to the project, these labor market institutions rarely met and shared information.
