PARTICIPATION IN WRIS
ETA would like to remind states participating in WRIS that the system has been developed to facilitate the interstate exchange of wage data between participating states for the purpose of assessing and reporting on state and local performance for programs authorized under WIA, under other statutory provisions authorizing programs identified as American Job Center partners in WIA, and for other purposes allowed under law.
In order for a Performance Accountability and Customer Information Agency (PACIA) to utilize WRIS for research purposes the following limitations are in place:
a) The research and evaluation must relate to one or more programs or an activity set forth in subparagraphs 1 through 4 of paragraph C of Section VII of the WRIS Data Sharing Agreement, dated 17 February 2011;
b) There are no conditions under which use of Wage Data is approved for research and evaluation without the express, voluntary consent of the participating state whose data are to be used for such purpose.
If there are questions surrounding the use of WRIS, please contact WRIS@dol.gov.
