what is the wispr system
What is the WISPR System?
  • The ETA Management Information and Longitudinal Evaluation (EMILE) performance reporting system was published in July 2004 for a 60-day comment period
    • 161 unique comment letters
    • EMILE feasibility study with 4 states
    • DOL collaborative process to revise proposal
    • Informal feedback from some states on technical details of the proposed system
what is the wispr system1
What is the WISPR System?
  • We listened to you:
  • Performance reporting for state programs only
  • Individual records for exiters only
  • Aggregate information on employer services

what is the wispr system3
What is the WISPR System?
  • A proposed streamlined performance reporting system for the following DOL programs:
    • Wagner-Peyser Employment Service
    • Jobs for Veterans State Grants (DVOP/LVER Programs)
    • WIA Adults and Dislocated Workers
    • WIA Youth
    • Trade Adjustment Assistance
    • National Emergency Grants
what is the wispr system4
What is the WISPR System?
  • Request for comments to OMB published in November 2006
  • Areas of concern:
    • Clarification on veterans programs
    • Self-services and social security numbers
    • Implementation date
    • Specific changes
why wispr
  • Fewer barriers to service integration because of different definitions and reports for each workforce program
  • Consistent measurement of performance results through the use of a single, streamlined reporting structure
  • Results on the core purposes of the workforce system – employment for adults and skills for youth
  • Results based on customizable geographic areas (e.g., regional labor markets)
why wispr1
  • Common performance measure outcomes, reported across programs
  • Information management and oversight of programs
  • Reflects shared youth vision
  • Emphasis on co-enrollment strategies
next steps for wispr
Next Steps for WISPR
  • During Program Year 2007/Fiscal Year 2008:
  • Resolve comments with the Office of Management and Budget
  • Issue guidance with approved reporting formats
  • Develop necessary infrastructure for receiving reports
  • Provide training to system
Part II A
  • Shared Youth Vision
    • Goals
    • Resource Alignment
    • Partnerships
shared youth vision
Shared Youth Vision
  • White House Task Force Report on Disadvantaged Youth
  • Issued in October 2003 under direction of Domestic Policy Council
  • Focused on 4 Goals: Better Management, Accountability, Connections, Priority To Serve the Neediest Youth
  • Recommendations
    • Focus funding on target populations
    • Interagency Collaboration to coordinate evaluation, accountability, and policy
    • Unified research agenda identifying best practices using random assignment evaluations
federal interagency workgroup
Federal Interagency Workgroup
  • Federal Interagency Work Group created in 2004 to ensure communication, coordination, and collaboration
  • Partnership now includes:
    • U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration and Office of Disability Employment Policy
    • U.S. Department of Education, Offices of Vocational and Adult Education, Special Education, Elementary and Secondary Education, Indian Education
    • U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
    • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
    • Social Security Administration
    • Corporation for National & Community Service
    • U.S. Department of Transportation
linking integration with outcomes
Linking Integration with Outcomes
  • Partnerships can lead to more effective use of resources and better outcomes for the neediest youth
  • Example: WIA and Adult Education
    • Out-of-school youth, ages 16 and older, qualify for the Adult Education program through the U.S. Department of Education
    • Leveraging Adult Education resources could allow local workforce development agencies to provide more comprehensive services to youth
    • Adult Education and WIA youth program share good outcomes of participants

Part II B
  • TAA Performance Reporting
how will wispr affect taa performance reporting
How will WISPR Affect TAA Performance Reporting?
  • WISPR will completely replace the Trade Act Participant Report (TAPR)
  • Most fields that are currently in TAPR will be tracked through WISRD
  • Additional fields are added:
    • Tracking more specific types of co-enrollments
    • Tracking Veterans information
    • Tracking Agent/Liable State identifier
  • States will report quarterly TAA performance outcomes
why is integrated reporting important to taa
Why is Integrated Reporting Important to TAA?
  • Co-enrollment important to successfully serve participants
    • Trade does not allow for initial assessments or follow up services (“wrap around services”)
    • Although the provision of core and intensive services is not required by the TAA Reform Act of 2002, the law requires the provision of these services through the WIA programs
    • Supported by the Governor-Secretary Agreement in each state
  • Integrated reporting encourages common exit date that is essential for tracking accurate performance outcomes
Part II C
  • WIRED Outcomes
workforce innovation in regional economic development wired
Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED)
  • The WIRED initiative has a slightly different approach; the grants have a broader scope
  • One goal is transformation of the workforce investment system
  • WIRED Performance Accountability Framework developed to capture accomplishments and successes
common performance measure outcomes
Common Performance Measure Outcomes
  • The ultimate success of the regional talent development strategies:
    • Appropriately educated and skilled individuals available to fill and attract additional high-growth and high-wage jobs to the region
workforce investment system role in wired reporting
Workforce Investment System Role in WIRED Reporting
  • Reporting on the common performance measures calls for a partnership between the WIRED regions and the appropriate state and local workforce investment system components
  • WIRED participants to be reported now using the WIA Standardized Record Data (WIASRD) NEG 3rd project data element
  • Once WISPR is approved, will use the Economic/Labor Market Area data element in the WISRD
  • Two methods for capturing WIRED participant outcomes:
    • Co-enroll in the WIA program
    • WIRED-only
calculating the wired common performance measure outcomes
Calculating the WIRED Common Performance Measure Outcomes
  • States will compile the co-enrolled WIRED participant and “WIRED-only” participant individual records
  • States include these records as part of their regular WIASRD/WISRD submission
  • Using the WIRED codes, ETA will analyze the data in the records to determine the common performance measure outcomes for WIRED participants/regions
