§ 6250.305a. State performance management system
(a) General rule.--The board shall establish a system for the development, oversight, modification and continuous improvement of a comprehensive performance accountability system that will provide effective measures of the performance and impact of the workforce development system at the State and local levels. The system will include input from board members, local workforce investment boards, operators of the one-stop delivery system, workforce development program providers, business and industry and the participating agencies. The system will be designed to produce recommendations to the board, the Governor and the General Assembly and shall function within time frames established by the board. The system shall be comprehensive and provide a reporting system for program funding as established by the board. The system shall:
(1) Identify one or more State agencies responsible for the coordination and management of data.
(2) Identify systems for tracking and reporting of information and determining the role of the State and local workforce investment boards.
(3) Enable the development and funding of a locally based management information system that will provide local workforce investment boards and the board with management data.
(4) Enable revisions to the performance management system.
(b) Required performance measures.--The State performance management system shall include:
(1) Entry into unsubsidized employment.
(2) Retention in unsubsidized employment six months after entry into the employment.
(3) Earnings received in unsubsidized employment six months after entry into the employment.
(4) Attainment of a recognized credential relating to achievement of educational skills, including attainment of a secondary school diploma or its recognized equivalent, or occupational skills by participants who enter unsubsidized employment or by participants who are eligible youths between the ages of 19 and 21 and who enter postsecondary education, advanced training or unsubsidized employment.
(5) The use of Federal funds for training services, including activities authorized under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-618, 19 U.S.C. § 2101 et seq.).
(6) Guarantees for program quality and performance.
(7) Uniform program performance measures.
The required performance measures in paragraphs (1) through (5) may be modified by the board to be aligned with common performance measures adopted pursuant to revisions to the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-220, 112 Stat. 936)1 or the adoption of common performance measures by the Federal agencies covered by this act.
(c) Customer satisfaction.--As an indicator of performance, customer satisfaction shall also be considered. The customer satisfaction indicator of performance shall consist of customer satisfaction of employers and participants with services received from workforce investment activities. Customer satisfaction may be measured through surveys conducted after the conclusion of participation in the workforce investment activities. These surveys shall include questions about whether employers, grant recipients and participants are able to quickly receive funding.
(d) Guarantees for program quality and performance.--Ensuring the quality of workforce development programs is an essential function of the board. The board shall establish one or more quality performance guarantees for workforce development programs under this act. A guarantee may include:
(1) A guarantee or warranty for the training provided to an incumbent worker, employee, job seeker or student.
(2) Successful completion of a certificate or short-term training class or program established by a college or university, a private licensed school established under the act of December 15, 1986 (P.L. 1585, No. 174),2 known as the Private Licensed Schools Act, or a local workforce investment board.
(3) Passage of a nationally recognized or industry-recognized certificate examination.
(4) A combination of paragraphs (1) through (3).
(5) Other requirements established by the board.
The program quality and performance guarantee shall provide for additional education or training for persons who become employed and are not able to perform their duties at a satisfactory level, for employees receiving customized job training or other training that is not satisfactory for the employer and for students advancing to the next sequence of an integrated and seamless secondary and postsecondary education program, as established in section 902,3 who are not capable of performing at this academic level. The board shall consult with local workforce investment boards and program providers prior to the adoption of the guarantees for program quality and performance. The guarantee provisions shall be adopted by the board by June 30, 2003.
