The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that all one-stop operators be selected or designated through a competitive process. The process of establishing the One-Stop System in Northwest Georgia began in October, 2016 with a Request for Proposal to procure One-Stop Operator(s) for the Region. The Georgia Department of Labor was chosen as the Operator in January, 2017.
