Title: ●Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act; Joint Rule with U.S. Department of Education for Combined and Unified State Plans, Performance Accountability, and the One-Stop System Joint Provisions 

On July 22, 2014, the President signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) (Pub. L. 113-128) which repeals the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA).  (29 U.S.C.  2801 et seq.)  As directed by WIOA, the Departments of Education and Labor must develop and issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to implement the changes in regulations that WIOA makes to the public workforce system regarding Combined and Unified State Plans, performance accountability for WIOA title I, title II, title III, and title IV programs, and the one-stop delivery system.

Therefore, the Departments of Labor and Education will issue a joint NPRM that will include regulations governing the Combined and Unified State Plans, performance accountability system and One-Stop Delivery System and One-Stop Centers, as both Departments are required to jointly implement these provisions of WIOA. All of the other regulations implementing WIOA will be published by the Departments of Labor and Education in separate NPRMs.
