The Illinois Workforce Innovation Board (IWIB) is responsible for providing leadership to ensure the programs offered through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) make investments that are evidence-based, data-driven, and meet the businesses need for a skilled workforce. This includes the development of policy, identification of best practices, and setting parameters for continuous improvement of the system.

In addition, as the Governor’s designated agency for the Title 1 Workforce Development Activities and the Trade Adjustment Assistance Act (TAA), the Department of Commerce Office of Employment and Training (OET) provides policy and guidance to the Local Workforce Innovation Boards (LWIB) for the delivery of workforce development adult, dislocated worker, and youth services as well as those offered under TAA.

Within this ePolicy manual are policy, procedures, related documents, and resources to support the LWIB in the implementation and provision of service under WIOA. Refer to the User Guide for step-by-step instructions, archived webinars, and instructional materials on using the ePolicy manual.
