The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA) was the first major overhaul of the workforce development system since the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA). The intent of WIOA is to create a seamless system of service delivery by bringing together a number of training, education, and employment programs to create a new workforce investment system driven by integration of services, customer choice, universal access, increased accountability, strong roles for business, local workforce investment boards, state and local flexibility, and improved youth programs.
