Consistent with the requirements in WIOA Section 121(e)(4), Wisconsin's statewide one-stop delivery system has adopted the use of the common identifier "A proud partner of the American Job Center network."1 The use of this common identifier serves to unify the statewide workforce development system and increase customer awareness of the system, both state- and nation-wide. This identifier must be displayed throughout the one-stop delivery system as outlined in this policy and must be used by local Workforce Development Boards (WDBs) in conjunction with any branding pre-established or newly developed for their local one-stop delivery systems.2
The common identifier "A proud partner of the American Job Center network" must be displayed on the following:
As a component of the One-Stop Delivery System and Job Center Certification process, DWD-DET has determined that Local WDBs must ensure appropriate use of the "A proud partner of the American Job Center network" common identifier within their respective workforce development areas.7 Local WDBs may choose to assign this responsibility to their contracted one-stop operator(s) . In this case, the expectation must be clearly delineated in the one-stop operator contract(s).
Costs related to implementing and/or maintaining the use of the "A proud partner of the American Job Center network" identifier may be considered one-stop infrastructure costs, and may be included in local negotiations and cost-shared between one-stop delivery system partners as part of the One-Stop Delivery System Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs).
