NASWA Recommendations to USDOL on Implementation of the Performance Accountability Provisions of WIOA

These recommendations are made by the Performance Measurement Workgroup of the Employment and Training (E&T) Committee of the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA), after review by the Committee. The Workgroup was formed in May 2014 during a Committee meeting, at which Members discussed the limitations of the WIA performance measurement system in providing locally-relevant information for real-time use for program improvement and evaluation. The passage of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provided an immediate opportunity for the Workgroup to gather experts and assist NASWA in informing the development of proposed federal regulations related to the performance accountability provisions.
