Policy Issuances

The MassWorkforce Issuance Series is managed by the Department of Career Services. The series is numbered sequentially with the first two digits representing the calendar year (e.g. 14, 13, 12) and the second two digits representing the number in the sequence (14-01, 14-02, 14-03). Policy and Informational issuances are listed by Active and Non-Active status, calendar years and then listed in reverse chronological order. A short description appears next to each Issuance number. All of the issuances may be viewed or downloaded in Adobe Acrobat Reader, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint or Crystal Reports.

These issuances transmit to local officials and stakeholders the policies of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts with regard to the implementation and operation of the workforce development system in conjunction with the Workforce Investment Act and related federal/state statutory and/or regulatory requirements. Policy issuances generally require procedural action at the local level to implement the provisions of the policy.

Active MassWorkforce Policy Issuances describe policies that are currently in effect. As policies are revised or because of time-sensitivity, become outdated, they are deleted from the Active list and added to the
Non-Active list. Non-Active policies remain accessible through the website as part of the historical record.
