Current Narrative:

Aligning Technology and Data Systems Across Mandatory One-Stop Partner Programs

The state uses technology to assist with data collection across the mandatory one-stop career center partner programs. Most mandatory program data are captured and shared extensively between three systems using a strong federated architecture. All participants have access to the labor exchange and labor market information systems. The state is combining the SNAP and TANF data system into the labor market exchange and WIOA case management system to streamline services under one roof at local career centers. The completion of the new system is scheduled for 2021. The state is exploring the implementation of a data hub to allow workforce assistance experts access to case management information for all core partners including VR and Adult Education to ensure all available services are provided to job seekers.
