As part of its effort to support state workforce agencies in their implementation of WIOA-mandated innovations, NASWA has conducted a baseline WIOA technology systems assessment to study and understand the status of current state workforce agencies data systems and where different states stand in making changes to their data systems and processes. 
Their goal with this assessment was to gather enough information to: 
  • Analyze the data innovation challenges and successes you are experiencing under WIOA; 
  • Identify states sharing similar challenges; Facilitate sharing and collaboration between states on best innovation practices; and 
  • Develop a body of knowledge and resources to which state agencies can turn if they need extra help.
