PURPOSE
The purpose of the PY09 review of the WIA Dislocated Worker Program is to determine
whether the expeditious and rapid response procedures are being implemented in
accord with the provisions of the Workforce Investment Act (Public Law 105-220) and
Regulations, DET policy, the WIA State Plan and the provisions of the local WDB’s WIA
Plan. Additionally, the review is intended to identify best practices and technical
assistance needs.

ONSITE REVIEW
Onsite monitoring focuses on implementation of major program activities. Onsite review
activities include structured interviews with local staff and the review of program and
participant documents. Onsite review is complemented and supplemented by ongoing
activities throughout the program year, such as plan reviews and attendance at local
meetings.

DESK REVIEW
Desk review includes ongoing review of program, expenditure and performance activity.
Intensive desk reviews of existing program information occurs prior to conducting the
onsite review with the objective of identifying particular issues and concerns that may
need attention or discussion during the local site visit.

    Sources of information for the desk review:

    1. WIA Local Plan
    2. WIA State Plan
