All Workforce Boards are required to operate in compliance with the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. The resources in this section are intended for Boards looking for real-world examples of policy implementation, with specific attention to effective structure, grants management, and program outcomes. Information addressed in this section includes:

  • Establishing and maintaining founding documents – such as Memoranda of Understanding, Joint Powers Agreements, Charters or other legally binding documents that outline basic operational structure and governance procedures.
  • Contracting for One-Stop, youth, or other workforce or government programs or services.
  • Budgeting, including setting up proper fiscal controls and auditing procedures for the WIB and its contractors.
  • Assessing, reporting and seeking to improve program outcomes.

Alameda County Workforce Investment Board's "8 Board Member Commitments"
The Alameda County (CA) Workforce Investment Board (WIB) asks each of its Board members to sign a statement committing them to fulfilling eight key responsibilities the Board has determined are critical to its success. Although such formal commitments are common in the nonprofit sector generally, they are less common in the field of workforce development (and Alameda County's is not a nonprofit organization). WIBs interested in board development issues may benefit from reviewing this document.
