We want to hear from you. The Department of Labor (DOL) seeks input from tribes as we consider incorporating a standard definition for effectiveness in serving employers performance indicator into the regulations for Indian and Native American Programs (INA) authorized under Section 166 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).



Are you a Federally Recognized Tribe or Native American Organization that receives an employment and training grant under Section 166 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)?

Join the formal Tribal Consultation to discuss a proposed regulation incorporating the effectiveness in serving employers performance indicator. 

Section 116 of the WIOA establishes performance accountability indicators and performance reporting requirements to assess the effectiveness of grantees in achieving positive outcomes for individuals served by the workforce development system. Under WIOA, there are six primary indicators of performance. Five of the six indicators are currently defined in regulations. DOL is developing a proposal to define the sixth primary indicator, effectiveness in serving employers, through regulation. This will impact grantees using the WIOA performance indicators, including INA grantees. This Tribal Consultation is an opportunity for tribes to provide input as DOL drafts the proposed regulation. WIOA section 166 grantees and stakeholders, especially those responsible for performance accountability and federal performance reporting, are invited to join.
