Item Title:† Budget Amendment to the Workforce Development Project Ordinance
Specific Action Requested:†
That the Board of Commissioners accept the proposed Workforce Development funding in the amount of $102,000 to the Workforce Development Project Ordinance with the appropriate budget revision to increase appropriations in the Workforce Development Special Revenue Fund.
The Wake and Johnston County Boards of Commissioners created the Capital Area Workforce Development Consortium in 1982. The Consortiumís Workforce Development Board is a private sector led board, in partnership with local government, which provides direction and oversight of workforce development activities for Wake and Johnston counties and administers federal and state workforce funds.
The Capital Area Workforce Development Consortium is requesting the incorporation of the following funding authorizations to the Workforce Development Ordinance:
(1) NFA#34-00061 authorizes $50,000 in Program Year (PY) 2004 Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Statewide Activities Incentive Grant funding. These funds represent a special funding award of $25,000 for each of the two re-chartered JobLink Career Centers (one in Wake County and one in Johnston County) in this designated local service delivery area.
(2) NFA#34-00062 authorizes (a) $2,000 in Program Year 2003 Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Statewide Capacity Building funds and (b) $50,000 in Program Year 2004 WIA Statewide Local Area Accountability funding.† The $2,000 allocation is to be used for dues to support the on-going capacity building efforts of the North Carolina Workforce Development Board Directors Council. The $50,000 is used to fund the Accountability Specialist position required for this local area. The Accountability Specialistís primary responsibility is the validation of participant data entered into the Stateís Workforce Plus participant reporting system utilized by the nearly 30 WIA career managers for the purpose of increasing participant data accountability and performance accountability.
The total addition to Workforce Development Project Ordinance funding is $102,000.
