*Names in bold indicate Presenter
This close relationship between politics and policy became clear when government budgetary constraints resulted into cuts in PRONATEC, revealing serious inconsistencies. This paper conducts a policy cycle analysis to identify problems and review the program. It highlights that, at formulation, PRONATEC did not provide a match between supply and demand at the labor market and did not consider policy sustainability. At decision-making, short-term gains were prioritized. Finally, at evaluation, monitoring and accountability tools were precarious, just as monitoring procedure were not carried out properly by the government.
