Jul 23, 2014
The Employment and Training Administration has published Training and Employment Notice -5-14. This TEN communicates the enactment of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), announces its current implementation plans, shares key statutorily-required implementation dates, and provides initial informational resources regarding the provisions in the new law.

The TEN conveys three attachments:

WIOA Fact Sheet
Key Statutorily Required Implementation Dates
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

The TEN notes that ETA has established a WIOA Resource Page (www.doleta.gov/WIOAM) to serve as the on-line repository for the Department's WIOA implementation materials. The fact sheet, key statutorily required implementation timelines, questions and answers, and other relevant guidance and technical assistance materials are available on this site.

Questions regarding WIOA implementation can be submitted to a newly-established in-box (DOL.WIOA@dol.gov). As responses are developed, they will be posted on the WIOA Resource Page.

The TEN also notes:
