Program C: Occupational Information Systems

Program Authorization: R.S. 23:1471

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Occupational Information Systems Program is to provide accurate application and technical support services to the Louisiana Department of Labor and its customers and stakeholder. It is also the mission of this program to collect and analyze labor market and economic data for dissemination to assist Louisiana and nationwide job seekers, employers, education and training program planners and providers, and all other interested persons and organizations in making informed workforce decisions.

The goals of the Occupational Information Systems Program are:

1. To provide timely and accurate workforce information and technical support services to the Louisiana Department of Labor and its customers and stakeholders.

2. To establish a comprehensive system of statewide and local labor market information based on standardized collection methods and procedures which provides for timely collection and accurate analysis of labor market and economic data.

The program administers and provides assistance for the Occupation Information System. This program has three components: (1) a consumer information component to collect data on the inventory of available training programs in the state; (2) a scorecard component to collect data on the training programs, including enrollment, placement rates, and other relevant data; and (3) a forecasting component to contain information on projected workforce growth, job growth, and demand.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
