Team Pennsylvania Human Resources Investment Council; Public Forums

[29 Pa.B. 1444]

   The Team Pennsylvania Human Resources Investment Council, (HRIC) under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), announces a series of public forums to be conducted throughout this Commonwealth. The purpose of the forums is to provide individuals, advocates and other interested parties and/or organizations the opportunity to present their views and recommendations regarding the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 5-year stratetic plan for workforce development (Unified Plan).

   HRIC will set the strategic direction and overall system measures to the individual Federal titles identified under the WIA. The process by which the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will implement the strategic direction and overall system measures is outlined in the Unified Plan. The Unified Plan must be reviewed, and, as necessary, revised. The Unified Plan, in effect for the period 1999 through 2004, will be submitted on April 1, 1999, to the Assistant Secretary, Employment and Training Administration, United States Department of Labor. It is a blueprint for the provision of workforce development services to job seekers and employers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Customer imput received through this series of public forums will be used to measure the effectiveness of the Unified Plan and will form the basis upon which it may be revised. Copies of the Unified Plan are available upon request or by email at

   Testimony relevant to any aspect of workforce development services for job seekers or employers within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is invited. Input focusing on customer awareness/understanding of workforce development services, customer satisfaction with workforce development services and recommendations for improvements to workforce development services will be particularly helpful.
