IV.   TYPES OF TRAINING

  A. Occupational Skills Training to be Funded under Blue Collar

         Occupational Skills training is occupational specific training designed to provide individuals with the technical
         skills and information required to perform a specific job or group of jobs. Occupational skills training shall be
         designed for occupations for which there is demand in the labor market. Skills training will be provided in a
         contextual manner and will combine classroom and work-based training. Occupational skills training programs
         will emphasize long-term, substantive employment through appropriate skills training and remediation to the
         extent necessary for success.

         1) Classroom Training

         Classroom Training means any training of the type normally conducted in an institutional setting, including
         vocational education, which is designed to provide individuals with technical skills and information required to
         perform a specific job or group of jobs. Such vocational education will include training designed to enhance the
         employability of individuals by upgrading basic skills, through the provision of courses such as remedial
         education, or “English-as-a-second - language.”

         2) On-the-Job Training (OJT)

         OJT means training by an employer in the private or public sector. Training will be given to a participant who,
         after objective assessment, and in accordance with the ISS, has been referred to and hired by the employer
         following the development of an agreement with the employer to provide occupational training in exchange for
         reimbursement of the employer’s extraordinary costs. OJT occurs while the participant is engaged in productive
         work that provides knowledge and skills essential to the full and adequate performance of the job. This does not
         preclude a participant who has been trained by one employer from ultimately being placed in a comparable,
         training-related position with another employer

         OJT may be integrated with other types of training such as classroom training or remediation. When utilized with
         classroom training, OJT may be accomplished either prior to, following, or during the training.

         On-the-Job training shall be limited in duration to a period not in excess of that generally required for acquisition
         of skills needed for the position within a particular occupation, but in no event shall exceed 6 months, unless the
         total number of hours of such training is less than 500 hours, including time spent in classroom training during
         which wages are paid by the employer. In determining the period generally required for acquisition of the skills,
         consideration shall be given to recognized reference material (such as the Dictionary of Occupational Titles),
         employer training plans and content, and the participant’s education, prior work experience, and ISS. OJT


                                                              10
       participants will be compensated at the same rates, receive the same benefits, and have the same working
       conditions as similarly situated employees.

       OJT will provide substantive training in higher skill occupations appropriate to the participant’s needs and
       occupational interests. Training plans will be developed which reflect rigorous occupational skill development.

       B. Work Readiness

       Work Readiness is classroom or on-the-job training, which focuses on specific work behaviors, not occupational
       skills. The training is provided for individuals who lack actual work experience, or who have unacceptable work
       behaviors. Work Readiness training will be offered in conjunction with occupational skills training, and/or
       remediation.

       C. Work Experience

       Work Experience means a short term or part-time training assignment with a public or private non-profit
       organization for a participant who needs assistance in becoming accustomed to basic work requirements. It is
       prohibited in the private for- profit sector.

       Suitability - Work experience should be designed to promote the development of good work habits and basic
       work skills for individuals who have never worked or who have been out of the labor force for an extended period
       of time.

       Duration - Participation in work experience shall be for a reasonable length of time, based on the needs of the
       participant, which shall be documented in the participant’s ISS. Generally, work experience for adults may not
       exceed the greater of six (6) months or 499 hours if working part time. The ISS shall include a justification in
       each case where work experience is authorized in excess of these limits for adults.

       Combination with other services - Work experience shall be accompanied, either concurrently or sequentially, by
       other services designed to increase the basic education and/or occupational skills of the participant, as
       documented in the ISS.

       Work experience alone is not an allowable activity.

       A pre-screening will be performed by staff to insure that each proposal is responsive to the Request for Proposal
        (RFP).

       Responsive proposers will then enter into and participate in Proposal Development. The purpose of this Proposal
        Development is to establish the “Best and Final” offer of the proposer. The process allows proposers to make
        necessary changes in their proposal to make it as clear and competitive as possible. The “Best and Final” offer
        will be the final revision of the Proposal. The Proposal Development period will begin on February 11, 2008 and
        end no later than March 6, 2008.

   4:00 P.M. on March 7, 2008.

       “Best and Final” offers will be presented by the proposer to a subcommittee of the DWIB. The DWIB will decide
        based on that presentation, and related data, whether to fund all or part of the offer.

       Oral presentations will be made to the DWIB proposal review committees on April 1, 2008. Individual
        appointments will be scheduled.

provider past performance, and other DWIB performance/contract placement standards. The analysis will be provided to
the DWIB, which will make the decision on funding.

Funded proposals will be expected to provide the services specified, at the cost proposed in the “Best and Final” offer
unless further Proposal Development is specified by the DWIB.

9. The DOL/DET contract staff may submit a concern to DWIB on matters discussed in Proposal Development.
   Proposers who decide not to adjust their proposals in light of expressed concerns may comment on their justification
   in writing or in their oral presentation.

10. Proposers may request an explanation of the basis of the awarding of funds from the Executive Director of the
   DWIB. The request must be in writing and must be submitted within ten (10) days of the award. Proposers who feel

                              Target Outline Question #1
                      YOUR PROGRAM’S OUTCOME STATEMENT

What is the overall end state that your agency will accomplish for the customers who are served by this solicitation?
 This statement should clearly indicate the programs responsibility to serve the customer from recruitment through
12 months of post exit follow-up services. All proposals must demonstrate a commitment to developing long-term
relationships with youth served in the proposed program

Outcome Statement: The result that the investor seeks (generally an end state) to which all performance targets must
contribute. Examples include: a school with no one being drug-dependent, a community in which no baby has a low birth
weight for any preventable reason, etc. Outcomes are specific states or conditions that can be understood to be caused or at
least influenced by the achievement of performance targets.




                                                               28
                                     Target Outline Question #2
                                           CUSTOMERS

A. WHO are the customer for the selected program and HOW MANY customers do you plane to serve in the coming program
   year? Please provide a description of conditions and behaviors of typical customers as well as demographic information on
   this customer group. In addition to describing new customers, current vendors who are seeking continued funding should
   include participants who carry-in from the current program year to the new program year.


B. In describing your customers, you should indicate the barriers you expect to/have encounter(ed) and how they relate to the
   focus on “neediest youth”.


C. Profile-Please provide a profile of one or two customers served by this program.


Customer: Customers are people who directly interact with an organization’s product and its implementers. This interaction is
intended to result in a change in customer behavior or condition in line with organizational outcomes and mission.




                                                              29
                                  Target Outline Question # 3
                                  PERFORMANCE TARGET

A. What are your QUANTITATIVE PERFORMANCE TARGETS for these customers for the year and how will you
   know if you reached them? Proposed programs must include the WIA performance goals that apply to the age group
   that the proposed program will serve as part of their PERFORMANCE TARGETS.

B. Discuss your program’s ability to meet contractually required performance standards or outcomes with emphasis on
   services to at-risk youth.

C. Verification –Identify the strategies that the proposed program will use to ensure the attainment of the
   PERFORMANCE TARGETS. In addition, identify the activities and tools that will be used to monitor performance
   on a regular basis.

Performance Targets: The specific result that an implementer seeking investment will commit to achieve. It is tangible in the
sense that it can be verified and narrow enough to be directly achieved by the implementer. It almost always represents a
change in behavior for the customer of a program.
Verification: Establishing that something represented to happen does in fact take place. Verification in Outcome Funding
replaces measuring. It is kept as simple as possible and looks more to answer the question yes or no than to measure small
differences. Verification typically focuses on milestones and performance target accomplishments.

PY 2008 Funding Guidelines: Delaware Workforce Investment Board

1. DWIB acknowledges that the degree to which an employee can analyze and solve problems, demonstrate
   soft skills and good attendance, is as important to job retention as is demonstrating the occupational skills.
   Accordingly, DWIB seeks evidence that these skills are taught and reinforced continually as important and
   interrelated parts of the occupational skills training.

2. The definitions provided in the WIA law and regulations will be the definitions for all sources of funds,
   including Blue Collar and State Skills Grant, except the definition of eligibility. The Blue Collar training
   programs have no requirement that participants be low income.

3. Training Programs that combine classroom training with internships, actual work experience, On the Job
   Training (OJT) and/or mentoring will be given priority for funding.

4. Training Programs that combine classroom training with internships, actual work experience, On the Job
   Training (OJT) and/or mentoring will be given priority for funding.

5. Preference will be given to proposals, in the proposal rating criteria, that demonstrate the ability to operate
   quality, cost effective training programs that result in high placement rates, increased wages, long term job
   retention and credential attainment.

6. Contractors are responsible for determining and documenting eligibility (and with the exception of Blue
   Collar Adult Programs documenting all USDOL data validation items), recruiting customers, and providing
   the Department of Labor, Division of Employment & Training’s Management Information System with the
   required information. Failure in any of these areas may result in corrective action

7. Retention services will be provided, as necessary in the day and evening in order to meet the performance
   measures, for three full quarters following the exit quarter for Adults and 12 months following exit for
   youth.

8. Ninety-five percent of available funds may be awarded. Up to fifty percent of the Blue Collar Funds
   contracted may be used for School to Work transition; the remaining Blue Collar funds will be used to fund
   adult training.

9. Funding may be approved to support all or any portion of the cost of a training program. Proposers will be
   asked to provide, in their proposal, the cost of their entire training program and the amount of funds
   requested.

10. No stand-alone remediation programs will be funded. However, basic language and numeric skills are to
   be incorporated into skills training programs where appropriate. Contractors and One-Stops will assess
   reading and math skills and refer individuals to Adult Basic Education where appropriate.

11. In recognition of the increasing use of computers in the workplace, Delaware Workforce Investment Board
   (DWIB) seeks occupational skills training that provides computer training appropriate to the intended
   placement opportunity. Evidence of such labor market demand computer training will be a key factor in
   selecting occupational skills training proposals.

12. Providers requesting support funds will be required to document linkages with other human service
   providers.

12. Proposals providing training in occupations in demand will be solicited.

13. The report and recommendations of the Office of Occupational and Labor Market Information (OOLMI)
   will be used as a guide to the types of occupational skills training which are to be solicited and funded.
   Training areas identified as high growth/high demand will be preferred. The Proposal / Certification
   committee will approve the list of the "in demand" occupations sought. Proposals for occupational skills
   training in occupations not targeted in the solicitation will be considered only with comprehensive
   documentation of the need for the training provided within the proposal.
14. DWIB will strive to provide training based on each county's needs and in reasonable proportion to the
   population. The Board may consider the percentage of poverty level residents recorded in the most recent
   official census, and the state-generated rate of unemployment.

15. Program providers shall define their staff qualifications in the proposal for any position for which they are
   requesting funding in whole, or in part.

16. Documentation must be maintained for each participant, including eligibility, data validation for non Blue
   Collar Adult programs, attendance, assessments, credentials, certificates & outcomes. The documentation
   must be made available to D.W.I.B., the Youth Council, DET and/or their designees upon request.

17. The WIA performance measures will be the performance criteria for all training programs, including Blue
   Collar. Wagner Peyser Act performance will be measured by Wagner Peyser performance standards, in
   accordance with federal regulations.

18. Blue Collar Adult training will be funded as a hybrid cost reimbursement/ performance based contract. 60%
   of the funding will be available on a cost reimbursement basis. 40% will be paid to contractors
   incrementally on a performance for outcomes (includes performance items such as certificates, day 1
   outcomes day 90 outcomes.)

19. Wagner Peyser Act funds will fund the core Services under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA),
   including all self-service, resource rooms and "how to" work shops. Wagner Peyser funds will also fund
   traditional labor exchange job matching, the employer relations function, and employer mass recruitment.

20. The eligibility criteria for the "hardest to serve" will be the low-income individual definition in the law
   (Sec. 101(25)). One exception is that any individual enrolled in selected Mandatory Partners programs who
   meets the appropriate age requirement automatically meets the WIA Adult Eligibility criteria.

21. A pre orientation meeting will be held in early January in order to outreach new proposers prior to the
   Request for Proposal orientation. The purpose of this meeting will be to encourage new proposers by
   demystifying the Proposal process.

22. Any local One-Stop office providing WIA services which fails to achieve 85% of goal in any year may be
   required to compete to be a provider in the following year in the Request for Proposal process.

23. For new participants after July 1, 2006 all Youth Proposers and ITA Providers will provide training that
   will allow trainees to earn a Diploma, GED, or Certificate as defined in USDOL TEGL 17-05 attachment B.
    Blue Collar Proposers are expected to meet the requirements.

24. Youth Proposers will be required to identify the credentials that youth will be expected to achieve during
   the term of the proposed program and the number of enrollments/exiters expected to achieve each
   credential.

25. Under the guidance of the Youth Council, the youth program will be contracted. Separate contracts will be
   solicited for In School and Out of School Youth.

26. Eligible youth programs will provide:
          a.   an objective assessment of each youth's skill/academic levels and supportive service needs;
          b.   an individual service strategy with an employment goal;
          c.   preparation for post secondary education as appropriate;
          d.   linkages between academic and occupational learning;
          e.   preparation for unsubsidized employment;
          f.   access to intermediaries (the one-stop system) with links to employers.

27. Although there may be multiple providers, there will be one comprehensive youth program that offers the
   following program elements:
          a. tutoring and study skill training;
          b. alternative secondary school services as appropriate;
          c. summer employment opportunities that integrate academic and occupational learning;
          d. paid and unpaid work experiences as appropriate;
          e. occupational skill training as appropriate;
          f. leadership development activities as appropriate;
          g. supportive services;
          h. adult mentoring during program and one year after, as appropriate;
          i. follow-up services to all youth participants for a minimum of 12 months as appropriate;
          j. comprehensive guidance and counseling as appropriate.

28. A minimum of forty-five Percent of the Youth Funds will be used for Out-of-School Youth.

29. Youth Proposers, consistent with the USDOL Youth Vision, will plan for improved youth performance
   while continuing to serve the “at risk/neediest” youth population as described in TEGL 28-05. This will
   include establishing linkages with alternative education and direct involvement with the business
   community (areas such as speakers, volunteer trainers, work shadowing, internships, & employment)

30. Youth Proposers will be encouraged to enter into partnerships (with other contractors or other youth
   providers) that produce synergy. Proposers demonstrating a synergistic partnership may be given priority in
   funding. Synergistic activity will produce an outcome greater than the sum of the efforts taken
   independently . Some examples are:
           A higher level of outcomes such as a greater percentage or a greater number of outcomes
               achieving 90 days of continuous employment.
           A clear improvement in the quality of outcomes such as an increase in the starting wage or a
               higher level credential.
           A decrease in the cost per outcome

31. Up to $40,000 will be set aside for the Youth Council to award mini grants to contractors during PY 08 to
   assist contractors in participating in synergistic partnerships.
                                                                                                  Attachment II

 TITLE I WIA, STATE BLUE COLLAR AND SKILLS GRANT PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR
             REGISTRATION AND CORRESPONDING ACT/REGULATION CITATIONS
PURPOSE – the Program Eligibility for Registration chart shows “AT-A-GLANCE” the Title I WIA eligibility criteria for the Adult
(18 or older), Youth (14–21), and Dislocated Worker programs.

REGISTRATION – the process for collecting information to support a determination of eligibility. [20 CFR 663.105 (Adult and
Dislocated Worker); 20 CFR 664.215 (Youth)]

DESCRIPTION: This chart is displayed as a four-column chart that consists of Eligibility, Adult (18 or older),
Youth (14–21), and Dislocated Worker programs. When an Act/Regulation Citation is listed in a specific column, the registered
individual must meet the eligibility criteria if they are to receive staff-assisted core, intensive, and training services under WIA as
an adult (18 or older) and/or dislocated worker. Likewise, a registered individual who is a youth must meet the youth eligibility
criteria if they are to receive youth services.

Blue Collar and State Skills Grant participants do not need to meet specific eligibility requirements unless specified in
agreements/contracts. Participants are required at a minimum to document the General Eligibility Items.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

        Eligibility column denotes the three areas for Eligibility (General, Economic, and Dislocated Worker).

             For General Eligibility Criteria, all registered individuals must meet the definition of Citizenship or Eligible to Work, Selective
             Service Registrant (if applicable), Residency, and Age.

        Adult (18 or older) column denotes the specific Act and Regulation Citation for eligibility under the Adult (18 or
         older) program.

             Registered adults (18 or older) must meet the definition of General Eligibility, which includes Citizenship or Eligible to Work,
             Selective Service Registrant (if applicable), Residency, and Age.

             Adults who receive services funded under Title I other than self-service or informational activities must be registered and
             determined eligible. [20 CFR 663.105(b)]

        Youth (14–21) column denotes the specific Act and Regulation Citation for eligibility under the Youth (14–21)
         program.

SELECTIVE SERVICE REGISTRATION

 In accordance with Section 189(h) of the Workforce Investment Act, which states that the U.S. Secretary of
   Labor shall insure that each individual participating in any program established under this Act, has not
violated Section 3 of the Military Selective Service Act (50 U.S.C. App. 453) by not presenting and submitting
                              to registration as required pursuant to such section.

                                            WHO MUST REGISTER


Almost all male U.S. Citizens and male aliens living in the U.S., who are 18 through 25, are
required to register with Selective Service. It’s important to know that even though he is registered, a
man will not automatically be inducted into the military. In a crisis requiring a draft, men would be called in
sequence determined by random lottery number and year of birth. Then, they would be examined for
mental, physical, and moral fitness by the military before being deferred or exempted from military service
or inducted into the Armed Forces.

A chart of who must register is available on page three of Attachment C.

NON-CITIZENS
Some non-citizens are required to register. Others are not. Non-citizens who are not required to
register with Selective Service include men who are in the U.S. on student or visitor visas and men
who are part of a diplomatic or trade mission and their families. Almost all other male non-citizens
are required to register, including illegal aliens, legal permanent residents, and refugees. The
general rule is that if a male non-citizen takes up residency in the U.S. before his 26th birthday, he
must register with Selective Service. For a more detailed list of which non-citizens must register,
see the Who Must Register for Selective Service Chart.

DUAL NATIONALS
Dual nationals of the U.S. and another country are required to register, regardless of where they
live, because they are U.S. nationals.

                                   HOSPITALIZED OR INCARCERATED MEN
Young men in hospitals, mental institutions, or prisons do not have to register while they are committed.
However, they must register within 30 days after being released if they have not yet reached their 26 th
birthday.

                                                DISABLED MEN
Disabled men who live at home must register with Selective Service if they can reasonably leave their homes
and move about independently. A friend or relative may help a disabled man fill out the registration form if
                                         he can’t do it himself.

Men with disabilities that would disqualify them from military service still must register with Selective
Service. Selective Service does not presently have authority to classify men, so even men with obvious
handicaps must register now, and if needed, classifications would be determined later.




                                                                                               August 5, 2002

        FULL-TIME MILITARY EXEMPTED FROM REQUIREMENT
           Young men serving in the military on full-time active duty do not have to register. Those attending the
          service academies do not have to register. If a young man leaves the military before turning 26, he must
                                                           register.

                                               NATIONAL GUARD AND RESERVES
                   Members of the Reserve and National Guard not on full-time active duty must register.

                                                  CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS
         Men who would be classified as conscientious objectors if they were drafted must also register with Selective
         Service. If a draft begins and they are called, they would have the opportunity to file a claim for exemption
                          from military service based upon their religious or moral objection to war.

                      COMPOSITE OF ACCEPTABLE ELIGIBILITY VERIFICATION

roduction

     All eligibility will be documented and verified.

     It is important to note that verification is far different
     than hard copy documentation.

             Verification means to confirm eligibility
             requirements through examination of official
             documents (e.g., birth certificates, public
             assistance records, or speaking with official
             representatives of cognizant agencies).

             Documentation means to maintain physical
             evidence, which is obtained during the
             verification process, in participant files.
             Such evidence would be copies of
             documents, completed telephone/document
             inspection forms, and signed self-
             certification statement.

     All registrants for intensive and training services
     must verify and document the General Eligibility
     criteria, which consist of citizenship or eligible to
     work, residency selective service registrant (if
     applicable), and age. Registrants to be served with
     WIA funds (Adult, Youth, Dislocated Workers will

 DISLOCATED WORKER – the term “dislocated worker” means an individual who (a) has been terminated or laid off, or who has received a notice of termination or
 layoff, from employment; is eligible for or has exhausted entitlement to unemployment compensation; or has been employed for a duration sufficient to demonstrate, to
     the appropriate entity at a one-stop center, attachment to the workforce, but is not eligible for unemployment compensation due to insufficient earnings or having
 performed services for an employer that were not covered under a State unemployment compensation law; and is unlikely to return to a previous industry or occupation;
(b) has been terminated or laid off, or has received a notice of termination or layoff, from employment as a result of any permanent closure of, or any substantial layoff at,
    a plant, facility, or enterprise; is employed at a facility at which the employer has made a general announcement that such facility will close within 180 days; or for
purposes of eligibility to receive services other than training services, intensive services, or supportive services, is employed at a facility at which the employer has made a
 general announcement that such facility will close; (c) was self-employed (including employment as a farmer, a rancher, or a fisherman) but is unemployed as a result of
                general economic conditions in a community in which the individual resides or because of natural disasters; or (d) is a displaced homemaker.

          INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING WORKFORCE INVESTMENT ACT (WIA)
                     STATEMENT OF FAMILY SIZE/FAMILY INCOME

This form is required for the verification of income of all WIA participants (EXCEPT WHEN THE FAMILY
INCOME WORKSHEET IS UTILIZED AS SPECIFIED IN ATTACHMENT K). In cases where the
recommended verification sources of Family Size verification are unavailable, then this form may also be used
to document family size.

For WIA program services, in extraordinary circumstances, this form may be also used to document income.
The explanation of the extraordinary circumstances will be documented in the case file. The documentation
will include the Self Attestation Statement described in attachment I.

This form will also be used

The purpose of this form is to verify the WIA applicant’s family size at time of registration and family income
during the last six months (26 weeks). This entails verifying the size and makeup of the applicant’s FAMILY. This
form is only required when eligibility is based on FAMILY INCOME.

The applicant should complete the Statement of Family Size/Family Income with the assistance of intake staff to
ensure it is completed correctly. The applicant will then take the form to have it signed by a witness who can
corroborate the given information.

Family – two or more persons related by blood, marriage, or decree of court, who are living in a single residence,
and are included in one or more of the following categories:

(A)        a husband, wife, and dependent children.
(B)        a parent or guardian and dependent children.
(C)        a husband and wife.

A dependent child is defined as a child:
      Under age 19 at the end of the previous calendar year, or
      Under age 24 at the end of the previous calendar year and was a student.

A dependent child was a student if he or she:
      Was enrolled as a full-time student at a school during any 5 months of the previous calendar year or
      took a full-time, on-farm training course during any 5 months of the previous calendar year. The
      course had to be given by a school or a state, county or local government agency. A school includes
      technical, trade, and mechanical schools. It does not include on-the-job training courses or
      correspondence schools.

Also, regardless of residence and/or citizenship, anyone claimed as a dependent on another person’s Federal
Income Tax return for the previous year shall be presumed to be part of the person’s family for the current
year. To negate this assumption, the person who was claimed as a dependent for income tax purposes would
be required to provide information that demonstrates the individual is no longer financially dependent.

In applying the definition of family, runaway youth, emancipated youth, and court adjudicated youth
separated from the family through involuntary temporary residence elsewhere (e.g., institutionalized,
incarcerated, or placed as a result of a court order) shall not be classified as dependent children.

Self-Certification Requirements

After review of the eligibility criteria, along with possible ways to verify the criteria, it was found that much of
   the verification was readily available through a number of agencies or sources. In some cases, definitive
     verification is required (e.g., eligibility to work (I-9 requirements under IRCA) and Selective Service
                                         Registration or exemption for males.

 WIIN 3-99, Change 2 allows for the use of Self-Certification to verify those items that in some cases are not
 verifiable or may cause undue hardship for individuals to obtain. A Self-Certification may be used after all
                           practicable attempts to secure verification have failed.

   In order to utilize the Self-Certification as verification, the Self-Certification Form, or facsimile, must be
                                                       utilized.

                                          Use of the Self-Certification Form is as follows:

                  If an applicant states that he/she cannot provide evidence that no income was received during
                 the past six months, and that he/she was unemployed for that period, the blank spaces following
                     the words “I certify, under penalty of law, that the following information is true” must be
                                                      completed. For example:

                    “Have received no income from any source during the past six months, I have been unemployed
                   during that time, and have been supported by donations/contributions from relatives and friends.”

NOTE: When using the “Self-Certification” form, the “Counselor’s Signature/Date” found in the “Certification” block must be completed.
           The “Reviewer’s Signature/Date” is to be completed by the Case Manager/Contract Intake Staff Supervisor.

information on a standardized form such as the example contained on page two of Attachment J.
Information recorded must be adequate to enable a monitor or auditor to trace back to the cognizant
agency or the document used. Telephone verification must include the name of the agency
representative providing the verification information.

In some cases, the information provided by an agency through telephone contact may be sufficient to
satisfy multiple WIA eligibility criteria. For example, verification that an applicant has been determined
eligible to receive TANF can satisfy the requirement for Youth program eligibility.

Verification of eligibility through document inspection is appropriate when documents cannot or may not
be machine-copied.

Agencies that may assist in verifying via telephone are as follows:

             Local Schools
             Social Security Administration
             Veterans Administration
             Medical and health facilities
             Vocational rehabilitation facilities
             Drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities
             Housing authorities
             Homeless shelters
             Judicial agencies and institutions
             Other State and local government agencies

When WIA eligibility verification is accomplished via telephone or document inspection, Local Workforce
Investment Areas are required to use a standardized form, such as the example on page two for
monitoring and audit purposes.

Alternative Income Verification Methods

                                                    Introduction

When income is used to document low income status, the eligibility is based on the income of the family. Family
income will be documented as described in Attachment “G”. The verification of income may be accomplished in
two ways:

         Statement of Family Size/Family Income
         Family Income Worksheet
The use of the Family Income Worksheet is an alternative method of verification . It replaces the requirement that
income be listed on the Statement of Family Size/ Family Income (Attachment “G”). Although an alternative, it
relies on the list of family members identified on that form and is subject to the definitions of Family and Includable
Family Income found in Attachment “G”

A separate section of the Family Income Worksheet will be completed for each applicant and family member over
15 years of age. When the individual has no income, “no income” should be written on the Annualized Total line.
For family members with wages/salary, the form will be completed as specified, identifying, the periods of work,
and the amount of income for the period. For individuals with other includable income, the type of income and
amount of income will be provided.

Income is calculated for the six (6) month period prior to application. It is then doubled to obtain the individuals
annual income. When this has been completed for all the family members, the individual family incomes are totaled
to obtain the total annual family income. The total annual family income is then compared with the appropriate
income tables found in Attachment “E”.

The form will also be used to document excludable income when it assists in verifying the support of the family.

          17. DOCUMENTATION FOR PERFORMANCE GOAL ATTAINMENT


Requirements specified for performance goal attainment in the Contract/Agreement must be met
before performance recognition can be requested. Information System information must also be
completed and received by the Management Information System/Internet Reporting System.
Documentation substantiating performance and actual training must be available upon request.

I.    The following general documentation criteria exists:

A.    Items must be documented by the verification of at least two sources except in the following
      circumstances.

                      If the exception is clearly stated in the contract/agreement, or
                      If the exception is specifically established in this procedure.

B.    Training will be documented. At a minimum the following will be documented:

        Hours of attendance
        Training Participation
        Satisfactory progress, and competency/credential attainment

       Documentation of attendance and satisfactory progress require both the verification
       signature of the contractor/work location and the verification signature of the trainee
       (participant).

      Documentation of training participation must be available. Acceptable documentation of
      training will include the initial assessment, periodic evaluations, portfolios and other
      evidence of training.

      Credential documentation will include ratings, evaluations, tests and portfolio items indicating achievement,
      and it will include the date that the competency was achieved.

C.    Documentation of all employment and other outcomes such as work activity participation
      (incremental and final), up to and including 90 day outcome retention, requires one of the
      following:

 A written verification by the employer/trainer (when training is the outcome) of the participant,
  or
 A copy of a check stub for the period in question and in cases where the documentation is for a
  outcome based on a period of time (day1,30,60,90 etc.), a Verification form completed and
  signed by a contractor staff person will be attached to the check stub(s)
Documentation of outcome in the Second, Third, and Fourth full quarter following exit can be accomplished through
counseling notes as long as there is a current Individual Service Strategy. Counseling notes when used for
documentation will answer the following questions:

             Who -Who was contacted and what staff made the contact?
             What - What was the result of the contact and what does this contact document?
             When - The time and date of the contact?
             Where - Where did the contact take place?
             Why - What was the purpose of the contact?
             How - How was the contact made?

II.       Items that apply to I, C:

A.        Documentation, that contains a live signature (faxes/e-mails will be accepted) is the best and
          preferred type of documentation.

B.        Documentation for each employment performance verification will at a minimum contain
          the following:

                  Date Verification Accomplished
                  Employer/Trainer (name, address, telephone number)
                  Date Employment/Training Began
                  Position/Type of Training
                  Hours Weekly
                  Anticipated Duration
                  Hourly Wage
                  Period of Employment/Training Documented
                  Signature of Individual Providing the Affirmation (include date signed)
                  Source of Information (if different than the individual who signs the document)


III.      Other documentation items:

A.        The use of signatures obtained prior to the date of the documented performance event is
          forbidden.

IV.       Documentation items specific to TANF Welfare Reform Contracts

       1. In addition to the previously established documentation established for performance/performance
          payment points, activity hours must be entered into DCIS according to the Division of Social Services
          Standard for the
          Federal reporting of activity hours. Entry is expected to be done weekly.
   2. Documentation that hours have been entered into DCIS will be the entry of hours on the Division of
      Employment & Training “Attendance Summary Sheet” with the notation that the data has been entered.
       These sheets will be compared regularly on a sample basis for consistency with actual DCIS entry.
      Failure to maintain 100% accuracy may, at the discretion of DET, result in the contractor being required
      to print the DCIS table(s) of hours to support each performance item.
