Performance accountability is a major feature of WIOA. The Act references “performance” nearly 300 times within the 298 page Bill. The purpose of these documents is to promote a dialogue among workforce professionals around the many issues related to how this performance system will be implemented.
Chapter 4 Section 116 on Performance Accountability includes a surprising amount of detail on what will be required. FutureWork Systems has reviewed these requirements and drafted some additional documents and resources to generate further discussion prior to DOL and ED finalizing definitions and regulations. These resources will be continually updated:
1. Comparison of WIA and WIOA Performance Measures
2. Countdown to Changes in Performance Measures under WIOA
3. WIOA Exit/Activity Cohorts for Performance Measures
4. Performance Reporting Requirements under WIOA (State, Local and Training Provider Reports)
We're not quite receiving the new WIOA PIRL file from our Performance Matters clients, but we are ready for it!
Regardless, the data we do receive under WIA's WIASRD file is enough to provide us with what we need to calculate the lionshare of WIOA indicators. Clients should expect to see WIOA specific data views appear on their Performance Matters site as early as July, along with announcements for special Webinar sessions to introduce them.
Instant, intuitive access to program data across your agency to support a performance dialog agency-wide and evidence-based decision making that can lead to improved programs for the communities you serve. That's effective Business Intelligence.
But to really understand it for Workforce Development, you must see it in action and learn from the experts who have seen it done across the country and at all levels across the workforce development system, including ETA, States and Workforce Development Boards. WIOA reporting and analysis can be push-button simple and empowering to agency decision-making.

BI can make a difference. We'll use your own data to prove it.
We may be jumping the gun, but we already converted our WIA dashboard site to a WIOA dashboard site. We really couldn't wait to freshen up the look and feel and prepare for some mobile-friendly dashboards. Hurray!
Dashboards currently report the most current USDOL quarterly WIA data, so we aren't quite at WIOA yet...but we'll be ready when the data is! Check out the new site and don't forget to sign up to be notified when dashboards are updated with new data.
