BACKGROUND:
POINTS OF CONSIDERATION:
STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS:
Approval of Plan Modification to Services Plan and Board Recertification. The Plan
Modification is in line with the board’s strategic plans and goals. Significant change in
the Plan is that Workforce will be providing direct services which was previously

BOARD ACTION – 9-22-11:

Workforce Connection
Workforce Services Plan Update
Overview
Florida’s 24 regional workforce boards and their local elected officials are periodically
required to update their local service plans. The full plan will be presented but this
document and the accompanying materials are intended to provide an overview of the
changes.
•
One significant change is the direct provision of one stop services by board staff
rather than through contract. This change was submitted for approval on June
10, 2011 and with your approval, sent to the State for their approval, as required
by law. That approval was granted conditionally prior to July 1, 2011, and full
approval was granted at the Workforce Florida Board meeting in August 2011.
The majority of the changes and updates included in the plan relate to the
procedural and process changes associated with the assumption of services.
They include:
o Revisions to administrative and programmatic policies and procedures;
o Revisions to financial policies and procedures associated with direct
payments for participant support services and training services; and,
o Revision of the board and staff organizational chart to reflect inclusion of
direct services staff
•
Revisions to the Boards composition and membership (as reflected in the
attached certification documents) that was approved by the Consortium at its July
18, 2011 meeting.
•
Updates and changes to its administrative and financial policies to comply with
recommendations from the Board’s Independent auditors, the state’s fiscal and
programmatic monitoring teams as well as locally improved processes and
technologies.

RECORD OF ACTION/APPROVAL
One Stop Customer Services Committee – 9-14-11
TOPIC/ISSUE:
Personnel/Budget
BACKGROUND:
•
•
•
When we assumed operations there were 98 Positions
Our first preliminary budget for planning purposes included $3,213,100 for
salaries for 75 positions.
The attached budget includes all approved and filled positions to date (73) for an
annualized amount of $2,786,000.
POINTS OF CONSIDERATION:
WIA Staff:
• The manufacturing NEG ended on 6/30 and the TBW NEG will end 9/30 however
many in the case load remain active.
• The total active WIA caseload is 1750 with 5 case managers (avg. 350 each), 1
in Citrus/Levy and 4 in Marion.

A customary case load for WIA is usually no more than 100 with 150 being an
aggressive yet achievable number.
Recommend adding (maintaining) 3 case managers, 2 in Marion and 1 in
Citrus/Levy, and 2 staff support, 1 in Levy and 1 in Marion.
Funding is available in Adult and DW to support continuation of these positions
along with additional funding for participant costs. (Due to additional allocations
and carryforward)
Maintaining high performance in WIA is an integral piece to future funding.

Mobile Resource:
• Executive Committee approved the acceptance of this van from another
workforce region free of charge.
• Minimal costs have been invested into the van to ready it for local use.
• Van does require one individual to operate and coordinate.
• Recommend 1 position as Mobile Resource Coordinator.
Employer and Placement Services:
• To support the placement of individuals into jobs a primary tool has been OJT.
In order to process and manage these contracts have need for an OJT
Coordinator to work with employers on developing the OJT opportunities and
training plans.
• In an effort to increase our screening capacity for Job Orders, increase our
staffing of employment consultants by adding 2 positions.
• Assist with the increase in traffic flow into the centers due to UC rule changes
which has doubled our resource room activity.
Web Developer:
• Web site is in need of being redesigned and updated.
• Need the ability to update and add information to the web
• Desire to be able to conduct orientations and workshops via the web
These changes would maintain 5 positions and add 5 to the current staffing for a total
staff of 80.
STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS:
1. Move an additional $240,000 into salaries
2. Move an additional $300,000 into participant costs
COMMITTEE ACTION:
Darlene Goddard made a motion to approve. Seconded by Michael Biskie.

RECORD OF ACTION/APPROVAL
Business & Economic Development Committee – 8-31-11
TOPIC/ISSUE:
OPS-65, Workforce Connection Regional Priority Occupation List.
BACKGROUND:
POINTS OF CONSIDERATION:
This policy does not replace the Targeted Occupation Listing contained in OPS-28 and
approved by WFI. It does, however, supplement this listing by providing guidance as to
which current occupations will be funded with workforce funds and to what extent, and
their priority status. This listing was developed with workforce intelligence data that
focused on our regional economic status. It is not stagnate; it can and will be updated
as regional industries and employment opportunities warrant.
STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS:
Approve OPS-65.

Florida Chamber Foundation’s
Florida’s Economic Pillars:
Talent Supply and Education
The Florida Workforce Development Association(FWDA), representing the twenty four
business-led, local workforce development boards in the state of Florida are in support
of the Florida Chamber Foundation’s Six Pillars program. Focusing on the primary
concern of the workforce system, FWDA specifically supports those goals contained in
the “Talent Supply and Education” pillar.
FWDA also supports an improved system of talent connectivity. Currently the state’s
workforce system uses “Employ Florida Marketplace” (EFM)as it internet-based labor
exchange system. This system is primarily supported by federal funding from the
Wagner-Peyser Act and the Workforce Investment Act. All unemployment claims filers
must register with this system in order to qualify for benefit payments. In these times,
this requirement has resulted in a number of highly qualified persons registering their
skills with EFM.
Despite this connection, an employer within the state of Florida cannot easily access
information on those who have recently graduated from one of Florida’s public colleges
and universities. Those seeking to hire recent graduates must in almost every case,
decide on which university or college that they wish to place their job listing and then
find that site on the college’s or university’s web site. If they wish to list with several,
they must repeat this process for every institution.
Conversely, students who are graduating or have graduated must either go to their
school’s career placement office to register for employment. Once their file is complete
it remains available only to those businesses who post employment opportunities on
that institution’s site.
These institutionally-based systems are valuable to draw recent graduates and alumni
into an employment arena. They are not efficient to allow Florida’s businesses, most of
which are small employers with no defined human resources staff, to seek the talent
that our educational system produces. They are not efficient in retaining, within Florida,
those whose education has been supported by their parents and other taxpayers within
the state.
23
FWDA has previously drafted a paper called the “Central Talent System.” That paper is
attached. This central talent access point for employers must also provide a service to
those institutions who are now stakeholders. To accomplish this, Workforce Florida, as
part of its strategic visioning, must engage all users- state and local partners in Florida’s
workforce system- to revise EFM into a tool that not only provides efficient employer
access, but provides stakeholders with outcome information that supports their needs
and goals.
Creating “Florida’s Central Talent System”
Since 2000, the workforce development efforts of Florida have been led, at the state
level, by Workforce Florida, Inc., WFI. Building on previously funded systems, WFI has
expanded and upgraded the “labor exchange” system funded through the WagnerPeyser Act. Moving away from a mainframe application, WFI, through its Florida-based
contractor, Geographic Solutions, has created a state of the art, Internet-based system,
Employ Florida Marketplace, EFM, that is used throughout Florida’s local workforce
delivery system.
Despite the efforts to improve both the system and its marketing, feedback from both
employers and applicants point out the following perceptual and factual issues.
1. Employers cite the lack of people in the system to fill “their kind of jobs”. By this
employers generally expand by saying that they are looking for more skilled
applicants. The inclusion of welfare transition customers has heightened the
legacy perception of the system as being a “second class system.”
2. Applicants cite the perception that the system does not contain jobs that match
their skill/pay requirements- employee version of the employer perception.
Clearly we have a “chicken and egg” scenario. We need more jobs that will attract more
people and we need to promote the applicant pool to get more jobs. What are some
solutions to this situation?
24
A. The State can “kick start” the expansion of jobs in the system as follows:
a. Require all state agencies and organizations to list their jobs in EFM.
b. Require all state contractors to list their jobs in EFM.
This will reinforce EFM as the “system the state uses” and thereby allows us to
market a wide array of professional, technical, managerial and entry level
employment opportunities. As a side, some feedback has been “ …if the system
isn’t used by the State, why should I use it?”
B. Require all state-funded institutions of higher education to transmit all information
on the students and alumni that register with their respective career placement
centers to EFM.
Many employers who are seeking young graduates have no single resource to
use. They must decide on “which” college or university they wish to place their
job listing with and for many this process is too confusing. By adding this talent
to EFM we are responding to the idea that we don’t have the people for the jobs
employers are trying to fill.
Both of these address marketing, perceptual and factual issues. They certainly will not
solve the problem but they are a catalyst that, if exercised, can set Florida off as a
leader in it efforts to form a central talent system. Neither of these should be viewed as
replacements for the current systems used, but as a way to augment those systems,
making it easier for jobs and talent to find each other.

Port Overview
The concept of constructing a canal across Florida dates back to the 1930’s when the
Canal Authority of the State of Florida was created. In 1942 Congress authorized
construction of the Cross Florida Barge Canal, but it wasn’t until 1964 that the US Army
Corps of Engineers began construction.
A suit by a number of environmental groups seeking an injunction against the
construction was filed in 1969 and a preliminary injunction was issued in 1971. This was
followed by a Presidential executive order suspending further work, which held the
project in suspension until deauthorization in 1990. At the time about one third of the
project was complete, including construction of a canal across northern Citrus County,
bisecting the Withlacoochee River east of US 19.
The bulk of the canal property was converted to the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida
Greenway, though a sizable portion immediately west of US 19 remained in private
ownership. This property owned by Citrus Mining & Timber, Inc. includes a sizable
limestone mining lease that includes a large barge slip which was utilized for limestone
export by barge.
In 1999 a cruise ship terminal was permitted as a DRI (99-01) which is east of the barge
slip. Though currently not in use, the DRI is still valid.
In 2009 an application was filed by the Genesis Group on behalf of Citrus Mining &
Timber, Inc. to create a new “Port” district on 545 ± acres of property north of the barge
canal and west of US 19. This district encompassed the mine, industrial property, the
cruise ship terminal DRI, and other acreage abutting the canal. The request was approved
and provides specific criteria to create a working waterfront along the canal. This
comprehensive and innovative approach brought new interest to the barge canal and in
March 2011 a presentation by attorney Fred Busack of the firm Pennington, Moore,
Wilkerson, Bell, and Dunbar, P.A. focused on the potential economic benefits of
establishing a port on the barge canal.
In response to this presentation, the Board authorized funding to seek legislative change
to include Port Citrus within the Florida Ports Council. This endeavor was successful
and in June the Governor signed into law HB 283 which resulted in the inclusion of Port
Citrus as a member of the Florida Seaport Transportation & Economic Development
Council.
On July 12, 2011, the Citrus County Port Authority held their inaugural meeting to
identify the steps necessary to develop a port on the north side of the Barge Canal. Early
actions included making application to become a member of both the Florida Ports
Council and the Gulf Ports Association of the Americas. In addition, the Port Authority
directed staff to develop a Port Element for inclusion within the Citrus County
Comprehensive Plan.

(5)The council shall review and approve or disapprove each project eligible to be
funded pursuant to the Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development
Program. The council shall annually submit to the Secretary of Transportation; the
director of the Office of Tourism, Trade, and Economic Development; and the
Secretary of Community Affairs a list of projects which have been approved by the
council. The list shall specify the recommended funding level for each project; and, if
staged implementation of the project is appropriate, the funding requirements for
each stage shall be specified.
(6)The Department of Community Affairs shall review the list of projects approved
by the council to determine consistency with approved local government
comprehensive plans of the units of local government in which the port is located
and consistency with the port master plan. The Department of Community Affairs
shall identify and notify the council of those projects which are not consistent, to the
maximum extent feasible, with such comprehensive plans and port master plans.
(7)The Department of Transportation shall review the list of projects approved by
the council for consistency with the Florida Transportation Plan and the department’s
adopted work program. In evaluating the consistency of a project, the department
shall determine whether the transportation impact of the proposed project is
adequately handled by existing state-owned transportation facilities or by the
construction of additional state-owned transportation facilities as identified in the
Florida Transportation Plan and the department’s adopted work program. In
reviewing for consistency a transportation facility project as defined in s. 334.03(31)
which is not otherwise part of the department’s work program, the department shall
evaluate whether the project is needed to provide for projected movement of cargo
or passengers from the port to a state transportation facility or local road. If the
project is needed to provide for projected movement of cargo or passengers, the
project shall be approved for consistency as a consideration to facilitate the
economic development and growth of the state in a timely manner. The Department
of Transportation shall identify those projects which are inconsistent with the Florida
Transportation Plan and the adopted work program and shall notify the council of
projects found to be inconsistent.
(8)The Office of Tourism, Trade, and Economic Development, in consultation with
Enterprise Florida, Inc., shall review the list of projects approved by the council to
evaluate the economic benefit of the project and to determine whether the project is
consistent with the Florida Seaport Mission Plan. The Office of Tourism, Trade, and
Economic Development shall review the economic benefits of each project based
upon the rules adopted pursuant to subsection (4). The Office of Tourism, Trade, and
Economic Development shall identify those projects which it has determined do not
offer an economic benefit to the state or are not consistent with the Florida Seaport
Mission Plan and shall notify the council of its findings.
(9)The council shall review the findings of the Department of Community Affairs;
the Office of Tourism, Trade, and Economic Development; and the Department of
Transportation. Projects found to be inconsistent pursuant to subsections (6), (7),
and (8) and projects which have been determined not to offer an economic benefit to
the state pursuant to subsection (8) shall not be included in the list of projects to be
funded.
(10)The Department of Transportation shall include in its annual legislative budget
request a Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development grant program
for expenditure of funds of not less than $8 million per year. Such budget shall
include funding for projects approved by the council which have been determined by
each agency to be consistent and which have been determined by the Office of
Tourism, Trade, and Economic Development to be economically beneficial. The
department shall include the specific approved seaport projects to be funded under
28
this section during the ensuing fiscal year in the tentative work program developed
pursuant to s. 339.135(4). The total amount of funding to be allocated to seaport
projects under s. 311.07 during the successive 4 fiscal years shall also be included in
the tentative work program developed pursuant to s. 339.135(4). The council may
submit to the department a list of approved projects that could be made productionready within the next 2 years. The list shall be submitted by the department as part
of the needs and project list prepared pursuant to s. 339.135(2)(b). However, the
department shall, upon written request of the Florida Seaport Transportation and
Economic Development Council, submit work program amendments pursuant to s.
339.135(7) to the Governor within 10 days after the later of the date the request is
received by the department or the effective date of the amendment, termination, or
closure of the applicable funding agreement between the department and the
affected seaport, as required to release the funds from the existing commitment.
Notwithstanding s. 339.135(7)(c), any work program amendment to transfer prior
year funds from one approved seaport project to another seaport project is subject
to the procedures in s. 339.135(7)(d). Notwithstanding any provision of law to the
contrary, the department may transfer unexpended budget between the seaport
projects as identified in the approved work program amendments.

RECORD OF ACTION/APPROVAL – REVISED 8-19-11
Executive Committee-8/23/11
TOPIC/ISSUE:
Change health insurance carrier.
BACKGROUND:
Workforce Connection with more than 50 employees now falls under Large Group. The
current carrier Blue Cross Blue Shield rerated us because of this large census change.
The result is an increase in premium of 3%. Our broker Benefits Advisors, requested
quotes from another large carrier, United Health Care. Their rate for a similar plan to
the current plan cost 28% less. See attachment for benefits and cost comparisons from
BCBS and United Health.
POINTS OF CONSIDERATION:
Besides the large reduction in premium, United Health has a very large network, even
larger then BCBS.
STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS:
Change to United Health Care for group health insurance effective 9-15-11.
