The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications is involved with the JET Programme in countless ways, most notably in administrative areas, such as calculating financial resources and determining acceptance guidelines for each participating country.

 

The MIC contacts the schools, local government offices and other organisations that employ JET Programme participants in order to compile assignment plans within Japan for new JET Programme participants.

 

After consulting with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and CLAIR, MIC then creates acceptance guidelines for each participating country and specifies acceptance numbers.

 

MIC also allocates local taxes to help cover a portion of Programme expenses such as each participant's remuneration and travel expenses.
