One-stop Comprehensive Financial Management Technical Assistance Guide – Part I
This Technical Assistance Guide (TAG) was developed by the US Department of Labor. While it refers to WIA, it still provides useful information on financial management that can be applied to WIOA financial management activities, including one-stop financial management, identification of shared costs, shared costs budgets, proportionate share and cost allocation, resource sharing, and resource sharing agreements. If there is a conflict between current laws, rules, or regulations and the TAG, the laws, rules, and regulations prevail.
This TAG was developed by the US Department of Labor as a supplement to Part I. Again, while it refers to WIA, it still provides useful information on financial management can be applied to WIOA financial management activities, including fund distribution, financial management systems, cost principles, allowable costs, cost classifications, cash management, program income, cost allocation and cost pooling, financial reporting, procurement, property management, audits and audit resolution, disposition of disallowed costs, records retention, and agreement closeouts. Again, if there is a conflict between current laws, rules, or regulations and the TAG, the laws, rules, and regulations prevail.
The 2018 Nebraska Workforce Conference was sponsored by Nebraska’s WIOA core partners, in collaboration with Maher and Maher, and funded by a Technical Assistance Training Grant provided by the United States Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration.
