WIOA Contract Guide


Illinois workNet provides a means to report all of the contracts and contract values as required by
the IWIB Act through the WIOA Provider Summary Reporting application.  State legislation and policy reference:  WIA Notice 12-NOT-02.  The Local Workforce Innovation Areas (LWIA) are required to report annually. The most recent reporting deadline was October 31, 2019.   

All providers will be required to utilize the WIOA Contract Report Tool to report the appropriate information.  WIOA Contract Reporting Presentation Instructions (PDF)

Types of Contract Reporting
​There are two types of provider contracts that have to be reported:

​                                          Training Providers 
                                            ​Service Providers 
​Report total ITA expenditures (net of refunds) for all ITA training providers for the period.  You don’t have to report IWT or OJT training expenditures since the IWT/OJT employers would not be training providers that can be found in IWDS or Illinois workNet.  Please report expenditures for WIOA-funded grants, such as formula, Rapid Response, and incentive grants.  You don’t have to report expenditures for Trade or non-WIOA grants.  
​Enter the total amount of the subaward/contract for each subrecipient, not the total amount paid.  Enter the date range of the contract/subaward.  It may not be the same date range as the reporting period, but it should have started some time during the reporting period.  Subawards that have been reported previously do not have to be reported again even if the subaward amount was modified or the subaward period spans more than one reporting period.  Renewals, however, should be reported.  

All supporting documentation must be maintained for monitoring purposes. You will only be able to report amounts for providers in IWDS.  If you cannot find a training or service provider, you may need to search for it using its new name.  For example, PCCTI Healthcare recently became Verve College.
