Purpose. To provide guidance on meeting the Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 goals for the TAA and NAFTA–TAA programs. 2. References. Trade Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93–619), as amended; Trade Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–210); Workforce Investment Act; Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA), as amended; Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 7– 99, ‘‘Core and Customer Satisfaction Performance Measures for the Workforce Investment System;’’ TEGL 11–00, ‘‘Operating Instructions for Implementing the Amendments to the Trade Act of 1974 Enacted by the Trade Act of 2002;’’ TEGL 6–03, ‘‘Fiscal Year (FY) 2004 State Planning Estimates and Process for Requesting Additional Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Funds for Training and Administration.’’ 3. Background. The Trade Act programs, TAA and NAFTA–TAA, were established to provide workers adversely affected by trade with assistance to return them to sustainable employment as quickly as possible. While many trade-affected workers will be able to find reemployment without assistance, the Trade Act programs provide an array of benefits for those who need additional help. Performance measures were established for the Trade Act programs PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to measure the programs’ success in returning individuals to sustainable employment. National goals are set each year for the reemployment rate, retention rate, and wage replacement rate to be achieved by participants exiting the TAA and NAFTA–TAA programs. Although there are no individual state goals, states are responsible for meeting the national goals for the Trade Act programs as required by the Agreement between the Governor of each state and the Secretary of Labor. Performance in FY 2004 indicates considerable improvement in outcomes must be realized if the national goals are to be achieved in FY 2005. To the extent that these shortfalls are related to reporting deficiencies, the suggestions provided in section 6 of this TEGL emphasize the need for fully accounting for all TAA and NAFTA–TAA participants who enter employment in FY 2005. Moreover, since performance is an ongoing emphasis, the performance principles included in section 6 will be extremely helpful to states in ensuring that program performance is at acceptable levels in future years. This TEGL provides guidance to states on FY 2005 goals as well as actions needed to achieve those goals. 4. Performance Goals. The Trade Act programs’ national performance goals for FY 2005 are: • 70 percent of program exiters will be employed in the first quarter after program exit; • 89 percent of those who were employed in the first quarter after program exit will be employed in the third quarter after program exit; and • Those who are employed in the second and third quarters after program exit will earn, on average, not less than 80 percent of their pre-separation earnings. 5. Reported Past Performance. As outlined in TEGL 11–00, states are required to submit a quarterly Trade Act Participant Report (TAPR), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval number 1205–0392. Based on the outcomes reported in the TAPR, the TAA program has not met national performance goals in the past several years. In the most recent complete fiscal year, FY 2004, the reported outcomes fell short of the national goals on two of the three measures. E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1
