Indiana Nondiscrimination Plan (NDP)
(Formerly the Methods of Administration (MOA))
29 CFR Part 38.54(a) requires each Governor to establish and implement a Nondiscrimination Plan for State Programs. Each Nondiscrimination Plan must be designed to give a reasonable guarantee that all recipients will comply, and are complying with the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of WIOA and its regulations.
The NDP consists of nine distinct elements. Combined, the information contained in the nine elements describes how each Workforce Development Board achieves compliance in all its Title I Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) programs and activities.
The State Equal Opportunity (EO) Officer reviews the Nondiscrimination Plan every two years to determine if changes are necessary in order for Indiana to achieve compliance with WIOA and its regulations.
The NDP is organized into nine sections titled Elements:
- Element One: Designation of Equal Opportunity Officer
- Element Two: Notice and Communication
- Element Three: Review Assurances, Job Training Plans, Contracts, and Policies and Procedures
- Element Four: Universal Outreach
- Element Five: Compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 973, as amended, and 29 CFR Part 38
- Element Six: Data and Information Collection and Maintenance
- Element Seven: Monitoring Recipients for Compliance
- Element Eight: Complaint Processing Procedures
- Element Nine: Corrective Actions and Sanctions
