WRIS Update






Dear State Administrator: 
 
I am pleased to inform you that 19 states have signed and become parties 
to the new Wage Record Interchange System (WRIS) Data Sharing Agreement to 
date (please see the enclosed map).  These states now have the ability to 
exchange wage record information among themselves for performance 
accountability purposes.   By participating in the WRIS, these states are 
able to provide a more accurate picture of the effectiveness of their 
workforce investment programs through a more complete reporting of 
outcomes against their negotiated performance measures. 
 
We fully expect that over the next few weeks additional states will become 
party to the new Agreement as delays in clearance caused by the holiday 
season and changes in state leadership become less of a factor. Therefore, 
we will extend, the opportunity for states to sign the existing Agreement 
through February 28, 2007. 
 
ETA has had several discussions with state representatives, including 
recent calls from a group of state attorneys, about desired changes to the 
Agreement.  Most of the suggested revisions from the state attorneys’ 
group were policy issues, such as governance, access to the data, and the 
conduct of confidentiality compliance reviews.  I thank everyone for the 
proposals for changes to the Agreement and affirm ETA’s commitment to 
working with states to address the questions that have been identified to 
us.   However, we continue to believe that the best approach to reaching 
consensus on preferred changes is through the amendment process outlined 
in the Agreement.  After February 28, 2007, ETA will inaugurate the 
amendment process with the states that are party to the Agreement.  When 
an amended Agreement is ratified by these states, it will be distributed 
for review and consideration for signature by states that were not party 
to the Agreement when the amendment process began.
 
I appreciate the action taken by states that have become party to the 
Agreement and I look forward to our continued collaboration with all 
states to maintain the WRIS as a vital performance management tool. 
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. John R. 
Beverly, III, Administrator, Office of Performance and Technology at 
beverly.john@xxxxxxx or (202) 693-3420.
 
Sincerely, 
 
Douglas F. Small
Deputy Assistant Secretary
 
Enclosure
