The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) established six federal performance accountability indicators designed to measure the performance of state Vocational Rehabilitation Services programs. One of these performance measures is the Measurable Skill Gains (MSG) indicator which measures in-progress skill gains of individuals enrolled in education or training services.
Individuals participating in an internship can achieve Measurable Skill Gains. VRS has developed a new form to document job specific skills that were gained or improved during an internship.
Effective July 15, Community Partners who have Internship on their P/T contract must coordinate the completion of the Employer Verification of Skills Attainment form with the employer and submit the form to VRS prior to receiving final payment for the internship.
