      • 6. Program Data
        • A. Data Alignment and Integration

          Describe the plans of the lead State agencies with responsibility for the administration of the core programs, along with the State Board, to align and integrate available workforce and education data systems for the core programs, unemployment insurance programs, and education through postsecondary education, and to the extent possible, the Combined State Plan partner programs included in this plan.  The description of the State’s plan for integrating data systems should include the State’s goals for achieving integration and any progress to date. 

III. b. 6. A. iv. Describe the State’s plans to develop and produce the reports required under section 116, performance accountability system. (WIOA section 116(d)(2))

Current Narrative:

As per Section 116 of WIOA, as well as applicable federal regulations, the State will be on the cusp of submitting a single annual report covering all programs before the expiration of this four-year plan.  This is in addition to the reports already submitted by individual programs to their respective federal agencies if required.

The core program partners, working together with the WDQI processes in development and using SLDS database processes to address the requirements under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), plan to incorporate education and state wage data with WIOA cases management data into the current PIRL file schema to exchange, merge and report on behalf of all Idaho WIOA Title IB, II, III and IV grantees.

To fully incorporate the use of unemployment insurance data for performance reporting, the combined plan partners have executed the state’s SWIS data sharing MoU which allows core program partners additional options for the collection, exchange and reporting of required data. We anticipate that the process will involve individual programs sending their performance information to a single entity (likely the Idaho Department of Labor) who will compile and submit the State Annual Report to the US Department of Labor. As noted earlier, the WDQI grant will help to facilitate partner’s abilities to meet WIOA quarterly and year-end reporting requirements through its automated data exchange process.  The core partners required to report under Section 116 will issue a Memorandum of Understanding that identifies who this entity will be, the responsibility of that entity for submitting on behalf of the core programs, and the process for submitting program performance data to this entity.

The eligible agencies administering core programs will be responsible for submitting program-specific reports in accordance with applicable Titles under WIOA, federal guidance from their respective Departments, and other statutes to which they are accountable (for example, the Rehabilitation Services Administration and The Rehabilitation Act for Title IV programs). In addition, activities generated under this plan will lay the foundation to incorporate additional Idaho-based WIOA partner program reporting via automated, electronic means.
