Through this guidance in TEGL 11-19 Negotiations and Sanctions Guidance for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Core Programs, the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education delineate the process for negotiating levels of performance, as required by WIOA section 116(b)(3)(A)(iv). This guidance also provides explanation of the two instances in which a state may be sanctioned for performance failure or for failure to report (WIOA section 116(f) ).


In the WIOA Performance Negotiations and Sanctions Guidance Overview - Webcast, the Departments of Labor and Education reviewed important details of the WIOA Performance Negotiations and Sanctions Guidance.  Presenters addressed the purpose of the guidance, and gave an in-depth review of key topics impacting the negotiation and sanctions process for core WIOA programs.

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) hosted a WIOA Titles I and III Negotiations and Sanctions: Question and Answer Session. Presenters clarified any outstanding questions regarding the content addressed in TEGL 11-19, or the companion webcast.  Representatives from titles I and III engaged in performance negotiations, performance reporting and accountability were encouraged to attend.
