U.S. Department of Labor - ETA Attn: Eric Johnson Performance and Results Office Room N-5309 200 Constitution Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. 20210 Dear Mr. Johnson: Attached is a copy of Georgia’s Program Year 2002 Workforce Investment Act Annual Report. Georgia continues to take significant steps towards enhancing the workforce development system to foster the provision of quality services to its jobseekers, employed individuals and employers. Please direct any questions you may have upon review of the information contained in this report to Ms. Cynthia Robinson, Director for Workforce Development, at 404-232-7485. Sincerely,

Michael L. Thurmond Attachment

Workforce Investment Act Annual Report Program Year 2002
Georgia Department of Labor Michael L. Thurmond, Commissioner The vision for Georgia’s workforce development system is to build a world-class workforce. The foundation of this system is the network of the Georgia Department of Labor’s 53 career centers and 50 Vocational Rehabilitation service sites, plus Georgia’s 20 workforce area agencies and 51 technical colleges and satellite locations. State and local partners in Georgia look forward to building on accomplishments to date, so that the goals of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) will be fulfilled and the vision of a world-class workforce development system will be realized. Evaluations WIA section 136(e) directs states to “… conduct ongoing evaluation studies of workforce investment activities carried out in the State under this subtitle in order to promote, establish, implement, and utilize methods for continuously improving the activities in order to achieve high-level performance within, and high-level outcomes from, the statewide workforce investment system.” While the mandated WIA performance system provides good outcome measures, it has proven to be unwieldy for managing performance. Unemployment Insurance (UI) wage data is the basis of the majority of these measures. While UI data provide an inexpensive and comprehensive source of information on employment, retention and earnings, complete wage data are not available until approximately 18 months after a customer leaves WIA-funded activities. Consequently, many of the WIA measures do not provide the workforce development system with timely feedback on program performance. The workforce development system cannot afford to wait until WIA performance is calculated to assess service strategy success and outcomes for customers. Georgia has begun a series of evaluations designed to provide its workforce development system with a set of timely performance management indicators. Management tools for use at both the state and local levels will be developed to aid in continuous improvement. Having more timely information will allow adjustments to service strategies, data entry practices and other activities long before the WIA performance calculations occur. Use of the following indicators is being explored: • Employment Rate at Registration. Areas with relatively high numbers of customers employed at registration need to consider two issues. First, are they serving the population they intended to serve? Secondly, is this pattern having an impact on the earnings gain measure for adults? Georgia’s data show that customers who were 1

employed at registration tend to have higher pre-program wages and, consequently, lower earnings gains. Registering excessive numbers of employed customers makes it very difficult for states and local areas to meet performance levels on the earnings gain measures and may divert limited resources away from those most in need of the intensive services and training provided to WIA registrants. • Employment Rate at Exit. Whether customers have jobs when they exit from WIA is a strong predictor of what will happen in the subsequent performance measurement period. Employment at exit can be used to project WIA entered employment rates and employment retention rates. For example, approximately 88 percent of those who are employed at exit will be employed in the first post-exit quarter, compared to approximately 50 percent of those not employed at exit. Soft Exit Rate. “Soft exits” – exits that occur automatically in the WIA management information system 90 days after last receipt of service – may indicate a problem with either customer service or data entry. Customers who leave WIA with soft exits are less likely to be employed in subsequent quarters. Average Starting Wage. Differences in average starting wage reflect differences in labor markets and populations served. However, if an area’s starting wages are relatively low, it may have a problem with the quality of the placements being made. In addition, we have found that employment at exit and starting wage are useful predictors of subsequent earnings. Predictive equations have been calculated for adults, dislocated workers, and older youth. Credential Attainment Rate. The WIA credential measures combine credential attainment with employment in the first quarter following exit. They do not give a true picture of all the credentials earned. In order to get a clear understanding of these valuable outcomes, it is important to look at credential rates separately. Missing Credential, Goal, and Youth Retention Data. Credit is given for credentials earned by adults, dislocated workers and older youth (19-21 years old at registration) either during participation or during the three quarters following exit. Youth retention outcomes are based on what a young person (14-18 years old at registration) is doing three quarters following exit. In addition, younger youth have a year in which to meet the skill attainment goals set for them. When no data are entered into the credential, youth retention, or skill attainment fields in Georgia’s management information system, it is not clear whether follow-up efforts have been adequate. Georgia has designed an array of management reports to alert local areas to missing data and impending due dates for various data elements, including credentials, goals and retention. More complete and timely documentation should lead to more consistent follow-up and improved performance rates.

Cost Effectiveness In addition to WIA formula funds, a variety of resources are available to serve Georgia’s customers. Funds include National Emergency Grants, PELL grants and partner grants. These resources support local infrastructures, self-service and informational activities, as well as direct service delivery. Also, Georgia is in the enviable position of having a lottery-sponsored scholarship program, HOPE. The variety of funding options enhances service opportunities, but also makes evaluating cost effectiveness of WIA formula funds alone more difficult. Therefore, Georgia has chosen to consider WIA formula fund expenditures and participant counts as the first phase of cost effectiveness discussions. This approach is the beginning point for further exploration of local area funding and service delivery strategies. This dialogue will occur during PY2003. The following three tables show expenditures by local area for each WIA formula funding stream, the number of participants served during PY2002, and the expenditures divided by participants.

Introduction to the Data The following tables represent Georgia’s state-level and local area performance data for PY2002. Georgia calculates final local area results in January and then determines whether negotiated levels have been met. Georgia has taken the position that performance resulting from fewer than ten cases should not be considered when evaluating local area performance. However, the federal reporting format does not include numerators and denominators for local areas. Some of the results in these tables may therefore be misleading, and may not be used when final local area performance is calculated in January. To comply with the Wage Record Interchange System (WRIS) data sharing agreement, Georgia routinely suppresses performance results based on wage records when fewer than five cases are involved. As noted above, the federal reporting format does not include numerators and denominators, nor does it allow for exclusion of performance results involving small cells.
