Page 468, strike lines 18 through 21, and insert:

"K.1. Out of this appropriation is included $6,100,000 the first year from the general fund for the integration and enhancement of Virginia's workforce technology systems.

2. Such funding will enable single sign-on access for users and the addition of new individual, organization, and community-level data from both current and future agency partners. To the maximum extent allowable under federal law, regulation, and guidance, functionality will be developed to automatically associate wage and licensure outcomes to participant records, enabling performance-driven management and contracting. Such funding will also support the development of shared customer-facing applications, analytic tools, and interfaces. All elements of this project will be led by Chief Data Officer and Chief Workforce Development Advisor.

3. On or before November 1, 2020, the Chief Data Office and Chief Workforce Development Advisor shall submit a report detailing the progress of implementation for Phase I of this project among the four Titles of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and within the state's one-stop centers. This report shall also include a plan for sustaining Phase I and Phase II of the project, including the appropriate agency owner."


(This amendment adjusts the language related to the first year funding for workforce technology data systems.)
