As of February 2018, the Federal Employment Data Exchange System (FEDES) was temporarily suspended. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is currently working on reestablishing FEDES.
The Federal Employment Data Exchange System (FEDES) is a wage data exchange system that will provide state agencies with an efficient way to include Federal employment information in performance and evaluation reports required by Federal and state law and regulations. The data will be exchanged quarterly between participating states and participating Federal agencies. ETA is currently working with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Department of Defense to establish the necessary protocols for the exchange of wage data.
