State Wage Interchange System (SWIS)


The State Wage Interchange System (SWIS) was developed to facilitate the interstate exchange of Wage Data between participating state agencies for the purpose of assessing and reporting on state and local performance for the programs authorized under WIOA, under other statutory provisions authorizing programs identified as one-stop partners under WIOA, and for other purposes allowed under the SWIS Data Sharing Agreement.


The SWIS Agreement addresses the requirements of WIOA, the confidentiality requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) for education records, and Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program regulations for VR participant records. To aid your review of the SWIS Agreement, please read the background document that provides information and technical assistance developed by the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education related to the purpose, applicability, and content of the SWIS Agreement.


Should you have questions or require more information, State workforce agencies may email; State adult education agencies may email; and State VR agencies may email The U.S. Departments of Labor and Education encourage workforce development agencies to listen to the SWIS Informational Webcast and participate in upcoming technical assistance events.
