SUBJECT: PY 03 Performance Measurement Time Period
Background: The Department of
Labor and the local workforce investment boards negotiated PY 03 performance
standards for the five new areas last May. At that time we had assumed the
time periods for the measures would be the same as previously used.
However, in order for USDOL to fulfill the departmentís responsibilities to
report to Congress on the financial and performance results of federal programs
in a timely way and to inform budget decisions, the PY 03 WIA Annual Report due
date and time periods were revised. This issuance is to provide the time
periods to be used in the measurement of local board performance for PY 03.
Policy: Attached is a
listing of the 17 WIA performance measures, along with the time period used in
local board measurement for PY 03. Also included in the chart, are the
time periods used in the report year just completed. You will notice that
most of the measures contain some degree of duplication with previous data
utilized. We have been advised by USDOL that they will be providing us
with clarifications on how these new time frames affect the awarding of
incentives and the application of sanctions. We anticipate working with
OWC and the CETC to address any policy issues affected by this situation.
