Workforce Investment Streamlined Performance Reporting (OMB 1205-0469)

March 16, 2009
"WISPR (Workforce Investment Streamlined Performance Reporting) System is Suspended for PY 2009." WISPR implementation has been suspended for Program Year (PY) 2009 because of the challenge posed by the significant role the workforce investment system will play in the President’s economic recovery plan. ETA’s top priority will be working with our partners and stakeholders to meet the information and reporting needs associated with implementation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

October 2, 2008:
The Workforce Investment Streamlined Performance Reporting (WISPR) documents (Forms 9131, 9132 and 9133) have been approved by OMB (1205-0469) for a potential implementation date of July 1, 2009. This approval marks the beginning of several changes to workforce reporting. These forms will be for use by all grantees administering Wagner-Peyser, Veterans Employment and Training Service, Workforce Investment Act Title IB, National Emergency Grants, and Trade Adjustment Assistance programs funded by the United States Department of Labor (USDOL). The primary purpose of this new reporting system is to:

  1. Establish a standardized set of data elements, definitions, and specifications that can be used to describe the characteristics, activities, and outcomes of job seeker and employer customers served through the One-Stop delivery system;
  2. Facilitate the collection and reporting of valid, consistent, and complete information on job seekers and employer customers in order to support the overall management, evaluation, and continuous improvement of workforce programs at the local, state, and federal levels; and
  3. Reduce duplicate record keeping by allowing grantees administering multiple USDOL-funded workforce programs to utilize a single set of data specifications and formats to report on a job seeker’s and employer’s interaction with the One-Stop delivery system.
