Program Integrity Section (State Level Monitoring)

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) states that the Governor of a State is responsible for the development of the State monitoring system. Each Governor shall conduct on an annual basis onsite monitoring of each local area within the State to ensure compliance with the uniform administrative requirements of the Office of Management and Budget.  The Governor must be able to demonstrate through a monitoring plan that the State monitoring system meets the requirements of WIOA law.

The Governor of the State of Alabama through the Department of Commerce, Workforce Development Division, has assigned compliance monitoring responsibilities to the State Program Integrity Section. Through the Program Integrity Section’s monitoring system, state monitors will review each local area for implementation and operation of the Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs under WIOA to ensure compliance with Federal and State laws and regulations.  Local area WIOA policies will also be reviewed including: policies for certification of area Career Centers; procurement of the One-Stop Operator for the Centers; and procurement of Youth Providers.

The Governor’s monitoring system also ensures compliance with the nondiscrimination, disability, and equal opportunity requirements of WIOA section 188, including the Assistive Technology Act of 1998 (29 U.S.C. 3003).
