The use of square footage and FTEs as a basis for a local funding mechanism to support cost sharing in American Job Centers is common across the country. Joint guidance in RSA 17-03 “IFA and Cost Sharing” (corresponds to OCTAE 17-3 and TEGL17-16), issued January 18, 2017, includes examples in which other methods might be considered for certain kinds of costs (Attachment 1).  In Sharing American Job Center Costs Using “Customer Count”: One Approach to Cost Allocation Under WIOA, the WINTAC and the RSA, in consultation with the OCTAE and the ETA, present an example of programs adopting “Customer Count” as a method for the allocation of costs related to career services available in an AJC.
