Current Narrative:

Data Alignment and Integration

Interoperable Management Information System

Core partner agencies convened a data workgroup to obtain information about the data systems and applications used by each partner and to identify essential actions to comply with data collection and reporting requirements for WIOA. These meetings revealed most state systems use the same database platforms, or platforms between partner agencies are highly extensible and interoperable. Florida will use a federated model with key systems interacting in intervals of real-time daily, monthly and quarterly. This allows minimal interruption of the data collection, management and reporting practices of each of the core and sub-entities involved within the partner agencies.
