Happy May!

This month has been a busy one for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) as they wrap up the final of three 2017 WIOA National Convenings. For those of you wondering how you can access the resources from the Dallas, San Diego, and DC (coming soon!) convenings, WorkforceGPS has you covered! You can find them on ION on our 2017 WIOA National Convenings Resources page.

As a reminder, the 2017 WIOA National Convenings have had one agenda and nearly identical content across the various locations. They also featured six different tracks: Business Engagement, Financial and Grants Management, Integrated Services, One-Stop Operations, Performance Accountability, and Strategic Governance. The resources page links to different landing pages for each track’s resources, as well as one for special sessions centered on civil rights and the plenary sessions.

This month, ETA has also released FAQs on the competitive section of one-stop operators, which many of you working towards meeting the July 1st deadline may find useful. These FAQs are available here.

As a reminder, in April, the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education released a sample memorandum of understanding (MOU) and accompanying cost allocation analyses for hypothetical local areas that may be used as a reference guide or toolkit when developing your own MOU. There is also an upcoming WIOA Wednesday webinar on MOUs (Part II); this event will take place on June 7. To register, click here.
