Reporting Information

The ETA Management Information and Longitudinal Evaluation (EMILE) Reporting System

On July 16, 2004, ETA posted in the Federal Register a request for comments on its proposal to replace current quarterly reporting requirements for 12 ETA programs with a single, streamlined system of reporting performance results. (Federal Register Notice for the EMILE Reporting System.) Three areas of concern consistently raised by states and grantees include:
  • collecting and reporting consolidated participant information on a quarterly basis, including individuals who receive core services;
  • the potential reduction of customers and services due to reporting; and,
  • issues related to collecting employers' Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) and social security numbers for access to wage records.
In order to move forward with the proposal and to be sensitive to the concerns raised through the initial comment period, ETA initiated a feasibility study of the EMILE reporting system, as originally proposed.   We are analyzing the preliminary results of the study, and will consider revisions to the proposal.  Please check back for updates


The EMILE Proposal as of July, 2004

The ETA Management Information and Longitudinal Evaluation (EMILE) Reporting System: Data Preparation and Reporting Handbook contains general reporting and record keeping instructions for use by all states and grantees administering ETA programs:
  1. The proposed individual record for job seekers. (Click here for the Excel version; the record is also part of the Handbook)
  2. The proposed individual record for employers. (Click here for the Excel version; the record is also part of the Handbook)
  3. The proposed quarterly report. (See Handbook or Fact Sheet)
The key benefits of EMILE include:

  • Reduces administrative red-tape with a single set of definitions and reporting procedures for all ETA programs;
  • Establishes a way to capture an individual' s workforce system experiences that connect workers to good jobs and employers to productive workers;
  • Provides reliable information on system performance, including program specific goals and objectives and the common measures;
  • Supports the demand-driven system by focusing on outcomes and results that are directly linked to successful partnership with employers, educators and economic development; and
  • Provides more timely participant information to respond to the oversight needs of governors, state and local boards, Congress, Federal stakeholders, and the general public.
