The departments are soliciting comments concerning a collection of data that will be used to demonstrate that specified performance levels under the WIOA have been achieved.

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), enacted July 22, 2014, provides many opportunities to advance a customer-centered workforce investment system driven by the needs of job seekers and employers.
The WIOA rewrite affect programs it oversees, including workforce development programs, Wagner-Peyser Act/employment services and Job Corps. For example, WIOA restructures Job Corps (CFDA Number: 17.259) to ensure career and technical education and training is geared toward in-demand occupations and disadvantaged youth (such as out-of-school youth) receive a regular high school diploma and/or a recognized postsecondary credential that prepares them for employment in the global economy.
