SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background:

    President Barack Obama signed the Workforce Innovation and 
Opportunity Act into law on July 22, 2014. The Act is designed to help 
job seekers access employment, education, training, and support 
services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the 
skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. Congress 
passed the Act by a wide bipartisan majority; it is the first 
legislative reform in 15 years of the public workforce system.
    Every year the key programs that form the pillars of the Workforce 
Innovation and Opportunity Act help tens of millions of job seekers and 
workers to connect to good jobs and acquire the skills and credentials 
needed to obtain them. The enactment of this law provides opportunity 
for reforms to ensure the American Job Center system is job-driven--
responding to the needs of employers and preparing workers for jobs 
that are available now and in the future.
    The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act supersedes the 
Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and amends the Adult Education and 
Family Literacy Act, the Wagner-Peyser Act, and the Rehabilitation Act 
Amendments of 1998. In general, the Act takes effect on July 1, 2015, 
the first full program year after enactment, unless otherwise noted.
    More information about the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity 
Act, key implementation timelines, and frequently asked questions can 
be found at http://www.doleta.gov/WIOA.
    Input from state and local workforce leaders and practitioners, 
workforce system partners, customers, and other stakeholders, is 
critical to successful implementation of this new law. These Webinars 
provide an opportunity for the Department to hear your input on the 
following key implementation topics:
     Thursday, August 21--Strengthening the One Stop System.
     Friday, August 22--Job-Driven Training for Adults and 
Dislocated Workers.
     Monday, August 25--Integrated Performance Reporting and
