The Commission of Indian Affairs’ Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Program is the recipient of the 2021 Division of Indian and Native American Programs Grants Performance Management System (GPMS) Team Award. The award was presented to WIOA by the US Department of Labor during the 41st National Indian and Native American Employment/Public Law 102-477 Training Conference. The GPMS was designed to streamline program operations, enhancing case management documentation, employment opportunities and on-the-job training services. The Commission participated in the GPMS pilot and is excited to be recognized nationally for its work through the program.

“It is a privilege to receive this award,” said WIOA Director Candace Lowry. “We look forward to continue learning and growing as a program and team.”
