SUBJECT:

Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Title IB Adult and Dislocated Worker Transfer Requests

Purpose:

To provide the workforce development community with the Department of Labor’s policies and procedures for requesting transfers between Title IB Adult and Dislocated Worker funds and a form for requesting such transfers

Background:

The Workforce Investment Act Final Rules, Section 667.140, grant Local Workforce Investment Boards (LWIB’s) the authority to transfer up to twenty percent (20%) of a program year's allocation between the Adult and Dislocated Worker Employment and Training Programs, upon approval of the Governor.

This transfer authority does not apply to the Youth Program funds.

Guidelines:

Guidelines for transferring Title IB Adult and Dislocated Worker funds have been established as follows:

  1. All transfer requests must be submitted to the Office of Contract Review and Expenditure Control (OCREC) no later than May 15 of the Program Year – e.g. PY’00 transfers must be requested by May 15, 2001. A form for requesting a transfer of funds is available on the Workforce Development website.
  2. The 20% maximum transfer amounts are based on Local Workforce Investment Area allocations including any supplemental allocations.
  3. Funds retain their year-of-appropriation identity and must be tracked, accounted for and reported accordingly.

Action:

Local Workforce Investment Areas opting to transfer funds in accordance with this Technical Advisory should complete the transfer request form that is available on the Workforce Development website, http://www.wdsny.org under "Technical Assistance," "Forms." The form may be emailed to OCREC via the SUBMIT button at the bottom of the page. A copy of the form is attached for your reference.
