RECOMMENDED ACTION(S):

TITLE

Approve and authorize the Chairman to execute the Fresno Regional Workforce Development Board’s application through the California Workforce Development Board (State Board) for Local Board Certification for the period of July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2021.

REPORT

ALTERNATIVE ACTION(S):

 

Should your Board not approve the recommended action, the Local Board recertification result will be denied, and a new Local Board will be appointed and certified in accordance with Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Section 107(c)(2)(C).

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

 

There is no Net County Cost associated with the recommended action, as this is an application for a designation, and has no monetary considerations.

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The California Workforce Development Board (State Board) and the Employment Development Department (EDD), acting under the authority of the Governor, released a draft directive on February 26, 2019, which established policies and procedures for the subsequent designation of local areas and recertification of local boards. 

 

To be eligible for subsequent designation and board recertification, the Local Board must meet the following criteria and submit the Local Area designation and Local Board Recertification application: 1) meet the WIOA Local Board membership requirements, 2) meet or exceed performance accountability measures, 3) achieve sustained fiscal integrity, and 4) engage in Regional Planning.  The FRWDB has met all of the required criteria.

 

The WIOA requires that the Local Board and the Local Chief Elected Official(s) for the Local Workforce Area approve and execute the application.  The directive requires applications to be submitted to the state by May 31, 2019.  In the event the Local Area is unable to obtain local approval by the submission deadline, the Fresno Regional Workforce Development Board (FRWDB) may submit an unsigned copy of the application with an explanation for the absent signature(s).  The FRWDB submitted an unsigned copy with an explanation on May 31, 2019.  The signed application must be submitted to the State Board by June 30, 2019.  Upon your Board’s approval of this item, the signed application will be submitted to the State Board before the June 30, 2019 deadline.
