4.16 35 Percent Expenditure Training Goal for Program Year Formula Allocations | 4.16.4 Monitoring Implications

4.16.4 Monitoring Implications

Effective Date: July 1, 2022

As this is a goal, and not a requirement, DWD-DET will not apply sanctions to local WDBs that do not meet the goal. However, the local WDB's progress toward achieving the goal will be evaluated during DWD-DET's annual coordinated monitoring. In cases where the goal is not met, or satisfactory progress toward achieving the goal in a given program year is not realized, DWD-DET will identify this as an area of concern. The local WDB will be asked to provide an explanation of the factors impacting spending on direct cost services and any actions taken to increase spending. DWD-DET may require that WDBs and their service providers participate in mandatory technical assistance to identify and/or develop strategies to increase spending on direct cost services.

Direct Costs

Effective date: July 26, 2019

Direct costs are those costs that can be identified specifically with a particular final cost objective, such as a federal award, or other internally or externally funded activity, or that can be directly assigned to such activities relatively easily with a high degree of accuracy. DWD-DET interprets this definition to include training services, support services, and certain individualized career services where funding is provided directly to, or on behalf of, the participant. This excludes basic career services and costs associated with staff time.
