Principles to inform or support state legislative policy and workforce system strategies
Charged with assisting the Governor with state workforce policy and investments, the state workforce development board establishes and directs the vision for the state workforce system, known as the CareerSource Florida network, to align with strategic partners within workforce investment, education and economic development systems. See the CareerSource Florida policies for more.
Ensuring accountability and transparency in workforce system investments
