Department of Labor Tribal Consultation on Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act

October 19, 2021 @ 2:00 pm CDT

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced it will hold a Tribal Consultation to obtain input from Tribal Nations regarding DOL’s development and incorporation of a standard definition of the sixth of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act’s (WIOA’s) six performance indicators, which measures the workforce system’s effectiveness in serving employers.

Under WIOA, there are six primary indicators of performance. Five of the six indicators are currently defined in regulations; however, in the joint final rule implementing WIOA (81 FR 55791), DOL and the Department of Education determined it was prudent to test various alternatives for the aforementioned sixth performance indicator. That process is now complete and the Departments are engaging in rulemaking to incorporate a standard definition of the sixth performance indicator into the WIOA regulations.
