Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) State Negotiated Performance Planning, Guidance and Agreed Upon Goals

PY 18-19 WIOA Performance Negotiations

WIOA Performance Negotiation Tool - Updated Date: 2.28.2018

This tool is intended to facilitate the negotiation process when setting WIOA performance targets for upcoming program years. It provides users with benchmarks provided by the Statistical Adjustment Model (SAM)--as required by WIOA--along with an analysis of historical performance viewed through a WIOA lens. These benchmarks are intended to aid negotiating parties in making informed decisions given that they are the product of rigorous analysis of the latest data available.

Statistical Adjustment Model Summary

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) section 116, Performance Accountability System, requires the use of a statistical adjustment model when establishing negotiated levels of performance. WIOA requires that levels of performance be negotiated for each of the primary indicators of performance at the State level. State-level actual performance outcomes are a function of (a) the characteristics of the participants being served, as well as (b) the labor market conditions in which those participants are being served. WIOA specifically requires that factors of both types be accounted for, and the use of a statistical model when negotiating levels of performance is intended to account for variation in factors of both types.
