The amended Information Collection Request implementation resources is also available. The resources attached include a red-lined PIRL, which also includes tabs detailing elements that have either been removed or added to each of the schemas. In addition, there is a tool that has been created to compare the original 2016 PIRL (ETA-9172) to the 2018 PIRL (ETA-9172). The red-lined versions of the Annual and Quarterly Reports and Specifications (ETA-9169 and ETA-9173) have been attached as resources as well.

A new tool is available showing how different Reportable Individual Scenarios should be reported in the Workforce Integrated Performance System (WIPS). This tool provides four different scenarios for reporting on an individual whose status as a reportable individual or a participant changes across different reporting periods. This tool helps to clarify when it is appropriate to include multiple records for the same individual based on these changes.

The Employment and Training Administration' latest WIPS newsletter advises reporting staff:

It's very important that you include specific information when reporting a WIPS issue. The more information that you include in your email to WIOA.Feedback@dol.gov, the easier and faster it will be for us to help you and resolve your issue.

Please include the following information in your email to WIOA.Feedback@dol.gov:

  • Description - The first thing that we need is a clear and concise description of the problem. It is a good idea to include the name of the page in WIPS, when applicable, where you are having the issue, such as Upload Report or Edit Check Results Overview. For example, if you have a question regarding a specific Logical Rule, then the page to include in your description might be Edit Check Error Details.
  • File ID - The file identifier number is available from the Edit Check Results tab and on the My Reports tab. This number will allow us to find your data easily. This number is assigned after you submit a file for upload.

Screen Shot - Including an image of the screen may answer a lot of questions that the support team may have before the issue can be resolved. You can use the PrtScn button on your keyboard to generate screen shot (use Alt/PrtScn if you have multiple monitors). You can also use the Windows Snipping Tool, which allows you to define the area of the screen to copy and allows you to add markups to the image. Either method will allow you to paste the screenshot image into your email message by clicking the right mouse button and selecting Paste or using Ctrl/C from your keyboard.
