Monitoring emphasizes a basic expectation of ethics and compliance management as outlined in all federal grants. Monitoring, besides being a critical part of workforce and equal opportunity programs, helps to reduce possible audit exceptions, sanctions and unallowable costs. As a grant recipient of federal workforce program funds, Washington State Employment Security Department (ESD) is required to conduct oversight and monitoring to ensure grant funds are used for authorized purposes in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
The goal of ESD monitoring is to help current and future management of programs with continuous process improvement and ensuring that job seekers have the education, work experience, credential, and skills required for employment.
Members of the different ESD Monitoring groups believe in honesty, integrity, clear communication, active listening, problem solving and assuming good intent. They apply these interpersonal skills in all of their monitoring activities.
