WIOA Wednesday - MOU Negotiations: The Partner Perspective - A Virtual Roundtable
1:00 PM ~ 3:00 PM ET
This virtual roundtable is a continuation of technical assistance around the requirements of the one-stop delivery system's memorandum of understanding (MOU) negotiations as called for under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). The goal of this roundtable is to break down silos, bring partner programs to the table, and have a larger discussion on their experiences with local negotiations.
Grantee representatives from the U.S. Departments of Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services will highlight not only the obstacles they have faced during their local negotiations, but also some best practices they have picked up along the way. Following our discussion, the audience will have an opportunity for Q&A.
If you would like to provide questions prior to the Virtual Roundtable to ensure that they are answered during the live event, please email questions to Fiscal.Policy@dol.gov.
