American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
Reporting and Record Keeping Guidance

To record the impact of ARRA resources, ETA has developed required supplemental reports. Under these supplemental reports, states are required to submit information that states already collect; however, states are required to submit the supplemental reports monthly.

REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS AND FORMS

For the Wagner-Peyser Act programs, states will continue to submit required quarterly aggregate reports, and include participants whose services are financed with regular Wagner-Peyser Act formula funds and/or Recovery Act funds.

For WIA programs, including Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs, and National Emergency Grants, states will continue to submit required quarterly (ETA Form 9090) and annual reports (ETA Form 9091), and include participants whose services are financed with regular WIA formula funds and/or Recovery Act funds.

  • ETA Form 9148 (expires 11/30/2009) - WIA Adult, Dislocated Worker and NEG
  • ETA Form 9149 (expires 11/30/2009) - WIA Youth
    • The program-to-date count for each data element on the ETA-9149 should be recalculated according to the revised specification. The data from the previous definition will be "frozen" in the May 2010 report, and data from the new definitions will begin in the June 2010 report. The program-to-date column should still include all the participants served since May 1, 2009 - however, that total will be calculated according to the new definitions. Currently, there are edit checks on the ARRA Monthly Reports that require the program-to-date count from the current month to be greater than or equal to the program-to-date count from the prior month. These edits will be temporarily suspended for the June 2010 report and reinitiated for the July 2010. (Recalculating Program-to-Date Column)

WORKFORCE INVESTMENT ACT STANDARDIZED RECORD DATA (WIASRD)

WIASRD is a collection of individual participant records, each of which contains information about a participant's characteristics, activities, and outcomes. These standardized records are maintained by state workforce investment agencies for all individuals who receive services or benefits from programs funded by WIA Title IB, including services financially assisted by National Emergency Grants.

ELECTRONIC WIASRD FILES ARE DUE TO ETA NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 15TH FOLLOWING THE END OF EACH PROGRAM YEAR

WIASRD Reporting Handbook

    • WIASRD Specifications (updated May 2012)
    • WIASRD Layout

        The WIASRD layout is separated into three distinct sections:

      • Section I - Individual Information: This section contains individual-record data on the participant's gender, date of birth, disability status, ethnicity, race, veteran's status, employment status, education level, income status, and barriers to employment.
      • Section II - Program Activities and Services Information: This section contains individual-record data on the local board or state program that determined eligibility, the types of programs in which the participant was enrolled, the date the participant exited the program, and the types of services the individual received.
      • Section III - Program Outcomes Information: This section contains individual-record data on the participant's employment and job retention; it includes occupational codes, notes whether employment was training-related or non-traditional, and records credentials and skill attainments.
IMPORTANT! WIASRD processing occurs overnight, and states should plan the submission process accordingly. Data submitted must pass all data format and edit checks before it can be considered final. See the WIASRD Tip Sheet for more information.
WIASRD Tools and Resources
  • WIASRD Tutorial
  • WIASRD User Guide - this link connects to a Zip file containing the following resources:
    • The User's Guide for submitting annual report data to ETA through EBSS;
    • A list of edit checks built into EBSS for Tables A through O;
    • An Excel template of Tables A through O, including the cell numbering scheme;
    • Excel files to help convert annual report data into text format;
    • Example text formats for Tables A through O; and
    • A list of the Local Areas in each state as found in the drop-down menu for submitting Table O. States should note that data submissions must match this list. If the list does not match the state's list, for assistance please send an email to WIA.AR@dol.gov with the subject line "Table O."
    • States are reminded that Tables A through O must be successfully saved before final edit checks are run and the data can be certified by the state PIN.
