Maryland’s WIOA Team is pleased to provide for public comment the following DRAFT Benchmarks of Success for Maryland’s Workforce System. While the State Plan serves as a road map for the workforce system, these benchmarks serve as critical touch points along this journey as we place Maryland’s jobseekers and businesses at the center of our practices, policies, and programs. 

As noted in the plan, the path toward government reform is not an easy one. It is, however, a necessary journey that Maryland’s workforce system must take. Recognizing that systems change does not occur overnight, the DRAFT benchmarks include a proposed timeline that outline how the benchmarks, once approved, will be implemented over the next several years.
Though the public comment period officially closes on September 23, the WIOA Alignment Group will begin reviewing comments submitted through this email address ( on September 15, 2016. Therefore, your expedited review and comments will be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you for all you do to advance Maryland’s workforce system.
