The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that all one-stop operators be selected or designated through a competitive process even if the Local Workforce Innovation Board (LWIB) is considering being an operator.  Training and Employment Guidance Letter 15-16 (TEGL 15-16) Competitive Selection of One-Stop Operators (January 17, 2017) provides information on the requirements for the competitive process as set forth in Section 121(d)(2)(A) of WIOA. 

TEGL 15-16 establishes that one-stop operators are subrecipients of federal funds that must follow the Uniform Guidance at 2 CFR part 200, including the contractual provisions in 2 CFR 200.318 through 200.326.  Part of this requirement is for the LWIB and the selected one-stop operator to enter into a legally binding agreement which may take the form of a written contract or another type of agreement, such as a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which is explained in the One-Stop Operator Procurement Competition Requirements section of this policy. 

The Local Workforce Innovation Areas (LWIAs) must follow the provisions outlined in TEGL 15-16, the key elements of which are summarized in the subsections of this policy.
