Florida has implemented the federal Workforce Investment Act,(now the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), which creates a comprehensive workforce development system that provides assistance to jobseekers and employers. The WIOA system is designed to:
• Streamline services through One-Stop Career Centers;
• Provide universal access to the One-Stop system and to employment-related services;
• Increase accountability;
• Create a strong role for Regional Workforce Boards and the private sector; and
• Provide state and local flexibility.
