Oct 24 -- The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) invites comments to OMB by November 23, 2022 regarding the State Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) collection.
Section 122 of Public Law 113-128, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA), requires training providers to submit performance and cost information in order to become eligible to receive funds through WIOA title 1-B and in order to maintain that eligibility. The Governor or a designated State agency (or State entity) is required to collect this information in order to determine eligibility of training providers and to maintain and to publicly disseminate the State eligible training provider (ETP) list.
State ETPL data collection requirements at 20 CFR Part 680 Subpart D: https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/20/part-680/subpart-D
Individuals seeking training through the use of adult and dislocated worker funds under WIOA use the State list and its accompanying information to make informed decisions about training options. In order to assist participants in choosing employment and training activities, the State must disseminate the State list and accompanying performance and cost information to Local Boards in the State and to members of the public online including through Web sites, searchable databases and through whatever means the State uses to dissemination information to consumers including the one-stop delivery system and its program partners throughout the State.
In developing and maintaining the list, the State must determine the eligibility of each training program and review eligibility on a biennial basis. For determining eligibility and for reviewing eligibility, the State must take into account a set of statutory factors which includes performance and cost information. The State must also verify the accuracy of information submitted, remove programs that do not meet State-established criteria and take appropriate enforcement actions against providers that intentionally provide inaccurate information.
