The purpose of this federal law is to better align the workforce system with education and economic development effort to create a collective response to economic and labor market challenges on the national, state, and local levels. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act continues the trend in workforce legislation by further engaging the private sector to lead local workforce efforts and focuses on introducing increased flexibility and accountability of board members.

The law encourages an improved response to labor market needs by connecting board performance to outcomes that require an understanding of the correlation between training investments and economic return. Changes in the legislation prompt Workforce Development Boards to be increasingly engaged in the business of collaboration, convening and partnership.
