    State Wage Interchange System : On May 3, 2019, the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education sent the State Wage Interchange System (SWIS) Data Sharing Agreement (Agreement) to state workforce administrators, state adult education directors, state vocational rehabilitation (VR) directors, and state unemployment insurance directors for their review and signature. States signing the Agreement will be able to exchange interstate quarterly wage records with any other State signing the Agreement to satisfy performance reporting requirements in section 116 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). States not signing the SWIS Agreement will need to develop and execute separate interstate wage sharing agreements with other States to satisfy the requirement that States use interstate wage records in measuring a State’s performance on the WIOA primary indicators of performance. The SWIS Agreement replaces the Wage Record Interchange System (WRIS and WRIS2) Data Sharing Agreements previously executed by most States.

    This is a reminder to register for the upcoming Performance Training in Chicago, IL on April 23-25, 2019, and Dallas, TX on May 29-31, 2019. The deadline to register for the Chicago Training is April 9, 2019 and spaces are filling up quickly, so sign up today.

    Performance Training: Addresses performance accountability topics specific to WIOA Title I and Title III State grantees, such as national and state-specific performance data, measurable skill gains statistical adjustment model, data validation and PIRL data element collection and submission issues.

    Who Should Attend

    Performance Training: State workforce development professionals engaged in performance reporting, data collection, and data management for WIOA Titles I and III (i.e., Adult, Dislocated Worker, Youth and Wagner-Peyser Employment Service programs). Due to space constraints for each training there are approximately 2-3 slots available for each state representative. Therefore, we recommend that state staff from ETA Regions 1, 2, and 5 attend the Chicago Training and state staff from ETA Regions 3, 4, and 6 attend the Dallas Training. Anyone not able to attend the training designated for their ETA region may register for the other training but should not register for both trainings. For example, if you work in Arkansas (a Region 4 state), but are unable to attend the Dallas Training, you may register for and attend the Chicago Training.

    Event Registration

    While there are no fees associated with this training event, for planning and security purposes, all attendees are required to register in advance. Your registration is not guaranteed until confirmed via a subsequent email. Click the appropriate link below for more information or to begin the registration process. Note: Space is limited.
