Training and Employment Guidance Letter No. 10-16, Change 1
Performance Accountability Guidance for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title I, Title II, Title III, and Title IV Core Programs
This guidance updates Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 10-16 published December 19, 2016 developed jointly by the U.S. Departments of Labor (DOL) and Education (ED) (the Departments). Within ED, the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) and the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) will update Program Memorandum (PM) 17-2 and Technical Assistance Circular (TAC) 17-01 respectively. The updated guidance provides clarifying language and corrections to the operating parameters and to the calculations of the numerators and denominators for the WIOA primary indicators of performance.
The purpose of this guidance is to provide sub-regulatory guidance on the requirements set forth in WIOA, related to the implementation and operation of the performance accountability system under section 116 of WIOA and the implementing joint regulations in 20 CFR part 677 and 34 CFR parts 361 and 463. As explained further in this guidance, WIOA requires all States and direct grantees of the Departments to collect and report information on all the participants described in this TEGL.
WIOA, signed into law on July 22, 2014, is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. WIOA supersedes titles I and II of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) and amends the Wagner-Peyser Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
The WIOA Joint Rule for Unified and Combined State Plans, Performance Accountability, and the One-Stop System Joint Provisions (Joint WIOA Final Rule) was published in the Federal Register on August 19, 2016, at 81 FR 55791, and took effect on October 18, 2016. This guidance is based on the statutory requirements of WIOA, as well as its implementing final regulations.
