Memorandum For: Providers, DOL-DET Management Team; and American Job Center Staff

Subject: Initial Notification to Providers Regarding Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) Changes Due to Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Implementation (ITA Memo #2)

  1. This memo provides initial information to Individual Training Account providers concerning the implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
  2. Major changes are underway that will affect all providers resulting from implementing WIOA signed into law last summer by President Barack Obama. The new law completely replaces the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998 and will have a profound impact on the Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL), including how programs and providers are recruited, evaluated, and renewed.
  3. There is a lot do to in a very short time while ensuring providers have as little disruption as possible. To that end, it is our goal to fully implement all requirements of WIOA by October 28, 2015.
  4. To meet this aggressive goal, Delaware Workforce Development Board will:
  • Accept no new providers or program applications until further notice, with a resumption target date of 18 September, 2015;
  • Develop and distribute for a 30 day public comment period; via its website, Twitter, Facebook, and WordPress accounts an updated Individual Training Account (ITA) process manual NLT August 12, 2015 ;
  • Hold a Provider Forum on17 September, 2015 at the Delamarva Power Conference Center to discuss all WIOA changes affecting providers and the ETPL; and
  • Distribute progress updates and changes as appropriate via its social media accounts.
  1. A copy of the new law in pdf format is available at http://wp.me/p5JCjI-1C.
  2. I am the point of contact for this memo at 302-761-8163 or William.potter@state.de.us.

    1. thanks so much the note. NO we don’t endorse any products. To save money I put these notices on a free site. At the bottom they may put ads on; I never really thought about it. Thanks, Probably need to reevaluate that. What do you think?

    No site is free! The site is most likely capturing info on everyone who reads your post and selling the data to data aggregators for future span contacts. And the ads are really repulsive, and inappropriate for distribution via public funds.

    1. Thanks for your comments. I really appreciate it. We intend to step up our use of social media to meet Delawareans where they live. I guess since Facebook and Twitter also use ads, I would really appreciate any suggestions you might have regarding which platforms are best. Or maybe we should use a disclaimer. Thoughts?
