This session is the seventh webinar in the Enough is Known for Action series for the youth community, hosted by the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) Division of Youth Services and Regional Offices. The purpose of this webinar series is to inspire strategic planning and action now as the system is in the early stages of implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

The passage and implementation of WIOA offers workforce and education programs a renewed opportunity to collaborate and meet the needs of youth, adult learners and job seekers. Career Pathways is a promising approach for aligning workforce development, education and training that is a requirement and is strongly emphasized in the new law. The initiative offers a new way of viewing employers as partners and co-leads in this work. In this webinar, you will hear about the new law’s emphasis on career pathways as a way to create more efficient and customer-centered approaches to education and training for youth. You will hear about the distinctions between career pathways programs and systems and be provided a sneak peek of our upcoming Career Pathways Toolkit and its six key elements.

This webinar is a part of the Youth CareerConnect Annual Conference. It provides the Uniform Guidance principles of budget controls as a tool to achieve program effectiveness. The budget is an organization’s financial blueprint to provide a plan of action to staff responsible for achieving the performance goals of a project. Budgets, when compared with actual expenditures, help management anticipate potential problems on a timely basis, and provides opportunities to plan ahead by highlighting trends. This webinar will outline the changes in the budget modification process between the federal awarding agency and the grant recipient. It will also highlight some analytic tools recipients may use to manage budgets against spending and performance.
This webinar is a part of the Youth CareerConnect Grantee Conference. In it we will outline the elements, requirements, and benefits of administrative and internal controls as sound management practices to mitigate risk of fraud, waste, or abuse as specified in the Uniform Guidance. The Uniform Guidance calls attention to the need to establish an internal control framework in grant recipients' and subrecipients' systems that will reduce the number of audit findings by moving to the standards for financial and program management. The presentation describes the components of effective internal controls according to the framework articulated by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) or the Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government, also known as the "Green Book." Common weaknesses in internal controls and limitations are also discussed. Additionally, we will discuss developing and establishing written policies and procedures that promote sound management practices and effective management controls and identify areas of grant operations that would benefit from having written policies and procedures. Finally, we will highlight key characteristics for developing effective policies and procedures and the consequences of ineffective policies and procedures as found through site monitoring visits or audit reports.
