WIOA Wednesday (On Thurs.) - Competitive Selection of One-Stop Operators: “Deep Dive”
3:00 PM ~ 4:30 PM ET
Section 121(d)(2)(A) of WIOA requires one-stop operators to be designated or certified through a competitive process. Competition provides the best method of ensuring that Local Workforce Development Boards examine operator effectiveness on a periodic basis.
Additionally, regular competition allows Local Boards to make improvements based on their one-stop certification processes, particularly in regards to the role of the operator and other service performance and performance metrics that may shift as one-stop partners and Local Boards update their MOUs.
This is the second of two technical assistance webinars on the topic of One-Stop Operator Competition. The first part, Competitive Selection of One-Stop Operators: “The Basics”, may be found here. In this second webinar, Federal staff and a local area expert will engage the audience in an interactive dialogue regarding the:
- The Phases of the Competitive Procurement Process,
- Essential Elements of the Contract,
- Avoiding Conflicts of Interest, and
- Implementation and Monitoring of One-Stop Operator Contracts/Agreements/MOUs.
