WIOA Wednesday - Competitive Selection of One-Stop Operators: "The Basics"
3:00 PM ~ 4:30 PM ET
Section 121(d)(2)(A) of Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires one-stop operators to be designated or certified through a competitive process. Competition provides the best method of ensuring that Local Workforce Development Boards examine operator effectiveness on a periodic basis.
Additionally, regular competition allows Local Boards to make improvements based on their one-stop certification processes, particularly in regards to the role of the operator and other service performance and performance metrics that may shift as one-stop partners and Local Boards update their MOUs. This is the first of two technical assistance webinars on the topic of competitive selection of a one-stop operator. In this webinar, Federal staff and a local area expert from Ohio will engage the audience in an interactive dialogue regarding foundational issues such as:
- Background, Roles, and Functions,
- Eligible Entities, and
- Procurement Standards.
