Transformation of the Federal-State Unemployment Compensation Legislative Seminar into an e-Learning Training Program

The National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA), Information Technology Support Center (ITSC) is seeking to procure the services of a contractor through a firm fixed price contract to develop and implement an e-Learning Training Program to replace a week long in-person Unemployment Insurance Legislative Training Seminar.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s (USDOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA)’s Office of Unemployment Insurance (OUI) is required to ensure conformity and compliance of state unemployment compensation law, regulations, rules, and operations with Federal law. Ongoing training and technical assistance are the key strategies to ensure this federal function is accomplished. One of the strategies that OUI has in place is providing technical assistance to state agency and legislative staff by offering a bi-annual in-person legislative training seminar. Budgets for state staff to travel for in-person training have been limited and OUI is looking to develop an e-Learning option to provide this training remotely using web technology to replace the existing in-person legislative training seminar.
