Performance Measures: Under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA), the Department has established three performance measures for the AIVRS program. The measures are (1) the percentage of individuals who leave the program with an employment outcome, (2) the percentage of projects that demonstrate an average annual cost per employment outcome of no more than $35,000, and (3) the percentage of projects that demonstrate an average annual cost per participant of no more than $10,000. Each grantee must annually report its performance on these measures through the Annual Progress Reporting Form (APR Form) for the AIVRS program. Job Training and Employment Common Measures In addition, the AIVRS APR Form requests data necessary to assess the AIVRS program’s performance on supplemental measures that are comparable to the job training and employment common measures that were developed by the Office of Management and Budget in coordination with Federal agencies with job training programs. Each grantee is required to collect and report data for these supplemental measures as part of the annual performance report requirement, including information on: (1) The number of individuals who, during this reporting period, were still employed three months after achieving an employment outcome, (2) the number of individuals who, during this reporting period, were still employed six months after achieving an employment outcome, (3) the average weekly earnings at entry, and (4) the average weekly earnings of the individuals whose employment outcomes resulted in earnings. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Note: For purposes of this section, the term ‘‘employment outcome’’ has the meaning provided in 34 CFR 369.4. 5.

In VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:01 Jul 16, 2014 Jkt 232001 making a continuation grant, the Secretary also considers whether the grantee is operating in compliance with the assurances in its approved application, including those applicable to Federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination in programs or activities receiving Federal financial assistance from the Department (34 CFR 100.4, 104.5, 106.4, 108.8, and 110.23).
