WDQC Submits WIOA Comments

After collecting input from multiple national and state organizations, Workforce Data Quality Campaign (WDQC) submitted comments on proposed regulations implementing the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). WDQC’s comments address several topics related to performance reporting, accountability, and data management.

Guided by a diverse group of national partners and state officials representing stakeholders across the education and workforce spectrum, WDQC encourages the use of data to ensure that all of our nation’s education and training programs are preparing students and workers to succeed in a changing economy. 

WDQC commended the Departments for collaborating to produce regulations that will enable WIOA programs to work in partnership towards common goals and strengthen the data infrastructure required to measure success. WDQC supports this approach, which incentivizes programs to work together to achieve positive results for individuals and employers.

The comments were informed by conversations with diverse stakeholders from around the nation, and are supported by: Association for Career and Technical Education, Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), Council for Community and Economic Research, National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium, National Skills Coalition, New America, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
