Current Narrative:

Assessment of Core Programs

Core programs are assessed each year based upon actual performance relative to federally required negotiated levels of performance at the state and local areas. Using the Statistical Adjustment Model, negotiations are conducted with each LWDB annually. Each quarter, performance is evaluated and, if necessary, technical assistance provided in areas of concern. Periodic training sessions are provided as necessary to identify and replicate innovative practices and engage in continuous improvement.

DEO’s Programmatic Monitoring Unit conducts annual participant file reviews and monitoring of the WIOA Adult, Youth, Dislocated Worker, Wagner-Peyser, JVSG, TAA, DWG and RESEA programs in each of the 24 LWDBs. These reviews ensure the LWDBS are providing are adhering to federal and state program requirements and providing appropriate services. A formal written monitoring report identifying best practices, areas of concern and findings resulting from the review is generated upon completion of each on-site review. In addition to the annual programmatic monitoring, The TAA program data is validated for the PIRL on a quarterly basis through TAADI (Trade Adjustment Assistance Data Integrity) tool.  For the JVSG program, LWDBs are provided technical assistance through state-level desk reviews of JVSG participant files monitored by the DEO State Veterans’ Program Unit. DEO offers in-person or remote technical assistance to LWDBs to mitigate identified program deficiencies and ensure the delivery of high-quality services that produce positive outcomes and meet the needs program participants.
