ETA is committed to performance. One way of evaluating and improving performance is to have common performance measures for programs with similar goals. ETA and VETS have worked to define common measures, and as of July 1, 2005, these measures were implemented for the WIA title IB and Wagner-Peyser employment services and VETS programs. The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) programs implemented the common measures on October 1, 2005.
