  • III. Operational Planning Elements

    The Unified or Combined State Plan must include an Operational Planning Elements section that supports the State’s strategy and the system-wide vision described in Section II(c) above.  Unless otherwise noted, all Operational Planning Elements apply to Combined State Plan partner programs included in the plan as well as to core programs.  This section must include—

III. b. 4. C. Previous Assessment Results

Beginning with the state plan modification in 2018 and for subsequent state plans and state plan modifications, provide the results of assessments of the effectiveness of the core programs and other one-stop partner programs and Combined State Plan partner programs included in the Unified or Combined State plan during the preceding 2-year period (i.e. the 2-year period of the plan modification cycle).  Describe how the State is adapting its strategies based on these assessments.

Current Narrative:

Pursuant to Indiana Code (IC) 22-4.1-24-2(a), annual reports are made that include information about state and federally-funded workforce programs administered by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) as well as total workforce expenditures across all state agencies performing workforce services. The state and our local workforce boards have been their annual performance measures as determined through federal performance negotiations. However, the state recognized that we could improve upon the services provided to individuals by looking more comprehensively at the services we were providing to individuals, and thus a comprehensive analysis on how to better serve Hoosiers led to the development of this Combined Plan. We will continue to monitor federal and state performance along with the goals outlined in this plan to determine iterative strategies at improving services to Hoosiers. 

The Federal and State Performance Measures are made available on the DWD Performance Portal at: www.in.gov/dwd/RPM.htm. The results of these performance measure drive conversations and collaboration among state and local partners to identify areas for improvement and to prioritize technical assistance. The state continues to outperform our negotiated rates across all indicators, and our local workforce boards are each performing nearly as well. In areas where a local region does not meet the negotiated metrics, the GWC and DWD work with local boards to identify areas for improvement and why they may not be meeting those negotiated levels. 

In addition to the Federal Performance Measures, the state has also put in place some other performance measures that are utilized to help drive better performance in those federal indicators. The state performance measures are also utilized to help identify performance funding that is available for local boards.  

As the state moves forward with our Combined Plan, we will be looking at performance across all combined partner programs, but to date, an example of our performance for core programs preceding this combine plan is as follows:
