Welcome to the Performance and Reporting Technical Assistance Page!
This page provides an overview of technical assistance resources and tools to help grantees navigate performance accountability and reporting requirements under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Here you will find resources on program updates, indicators of performance, reporting requirements, policy guidance, performance results and data, and other performance reporting information related to WIOA and the workforce development system.

WIOA, which supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, presents an extraordinary opportunity to improve job and career options for our nation's workers and job seekers through an integrated, job-driven public workforce system that links diverse talent to businesses. It supports the development of strong, vibrant regional economies where businesses thrive and people want to live and work.
ETA has organized the technical assistance content on this site by:
- Data-related resources;
- Reporting-related resources;
- Performance Results-related resources;
- Workforce Integrated Performance System-related resources; and
- Other resources.
ETA introduced WorkforceGPS specifically for workforce professionals, educators, and business leaders. Here you will find useful webinars and training resources, promising workforce development practices, and evidence-based research to help you navigate and improve your state’s performance reporting.
The WorkforceGPS Performance Reporting community provides technical assistance to grantees operating WIOA and ETA employment and training programs, particularly for those practitioners responsible for reporting on performance or making policy involving performance. As ETA identifies new technical assistance needs, new content will be developed and added to this site.
