Current Narrative:

(iii) The State Board and the Governor have been very instrumental in directing the core partners toward the new Virtual One-Stop system.  Once the Request for Proposal (RFP) was developed and issued for the new system and the proposals were received, Governor Ivey and her staff assisted in making the final determination of vendor and the new system.  The State Board has followed the implementation and progress of the new case management system closely to ensure the core partners have a stake in making it be the best possible system.  The new case management system will also be the basis for the new ATLAS Longitudinal Data System that is to be developed by July 1, 2020. The Governor and the State Board envision using the new workforce case management system to launch a Career and College exploration tool for use by individuals from secondary school throughout their working career. The purpose of the system is to generate timely and accurate information about curriculum performance that can be used to improve the education system of the state and guide decision makers at all levels. The system will facilitate the enhancement of college and career ready students by presenting the collection and analysis of performance and workforce data. The new VOS Case Management system, which is completely integrated with Title I and III, Trade Act, and Veterans’ programs, will collect and report all performance related reporting to the USDOL.  This system will also have all data on common participants from partner agencies that administer Title II and Title IV of WIOA.  The Core partners have interagency agreements in place to share common data elements to aid in performance reporting.  These data sharing files are in the VOS system and are completely electronic and totally secure.
