If you’ve ever had questions about differentiating between reportable individuals and participants for the purposes of performance reporting under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Adult, Dislocated Worker, Wagner Peyser Employment Service and National Dislocated Worker Grants, then this is the resource for you. The guide and its accompanying video are tools to understanding information provided in Attachment 7A of TEGL 10-16, Change 1 and the DOL-only PIRL.

The downloadable guide titled “Understanding Reportable Individuals and Participants for Performance: A Guide to Reporting Services” is intended to help users better understand (1) the distinction between a “reportable individual” and a “participant” and (2) the connections between the elements in the PIRL and the services allowed through the WIOA Adult, WIOA Dislocated Worker, Wagner Peyser Act Employment Service, and National Dislocated Worker Grants programs. You can download that guide in the Related Content section of this page.

This guide is complimented by a video below that will walk you through each of its components so that you are better prepared to utilize it in your performance reporting.

**Note: This guide has been updated to reflect changes to the PIRL that go into effect starting July 1, 2018.** 

Understanding Reportable Individuals and Participants for Performance A Guide to Reporting Services from WorkforceGPS on Vimeo. For those unfamiliar, TEGL 10-16, Change 1 is DOL’s performance guidance related to WIOA provisions for the six core Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) programs that are shared between DOL and the Department of Education, including the guidance on the six core indicators of performance required by WIOA and key definitions for terms relevant to performance such as “reportable individual” and “participant.” Attachment 7A of TEGL 10-16, Change 1 is a table that defines which services do and do not make an individual a participant. The DOL-only PIRL is the layout of the data elements and their definitions that defines what data must be reported, which is approved under OMB control number 1205-0521 and is ETA form 9172. Both of these documents can be found on the DOLETA Performance Reporting page linked to in the “Related Content” section.
