November 30, 2021
TO: All Human Services Innovation Manual Holders, Local Elected Officials, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Local Workforce Development Boards, Fiscal Agents, and OhioMeansJobs Center Operators
FROM: Matt Damschroder, Director
SUBJECT: Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP)


This letter transmits Administrative Code revisions. The rules in question govern the Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP). They were subject to review by the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR).


This letter addresses revisions to Administrative Code Division (OAC) 5101:14 (Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP)). The agency intends to meet state requirements for periodic rule review, while using this opportunity to: address issues and policy gaps that have raised concerns among stakeholders; reflect recent changes in policy and procedure; take account of current practices in partner programs, especially the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity act (WIOA); and update technical terminology based, for instance, on changes in state automated systems.

OAC Division 5101:14 now contains seven rules under a single chapter that carries the same title as the division per se. These revisions will reduce the number of rules to six, still within the same chapter.

Overview of Revisions

The changes are as follows:


  • 5101:14-1-01 CCMEP: Definitions. Amended vocabulary reflects new procedures and policies, new partnerships between workforce development programs, and changes in technology
  • 5101:14-1-02 CCMEP: General. A new statement of purpose is added, and edits are made to implement state policy updates, new program partnerships, and technological changes.
  • 5101:14-1-04 CCMEP: Referral, comprehensive assessment, individual service strategy, and individual opportunity plan. Amended language clarifies the local responsibilities and timelines affecting participant intake and the planning of individual services.
  • 5101:14-1-05 CCMEP: Case management. Language is edited to better specify case management requirements; there are also updated legal citations and data system terminology.
  • 5101:14-1-06 CCMEP: Program exit and follow-up services. Edits to this rule are minor, and consist of correcting punctuation and reconciling terminology with other rules in the chapter.
  • 5101:14-1-07 CCMEP: Primary performance measures. This rule is updated to remove reference to a performance criterion that is no longer applicable, and to clarify that the remaining criteria pertain only to participants in WIOA-funded services.


  • 5101:14-1-03 CCMEP: Program plan. The planning procedures addressed by this rule, are more appropriately specified at the level of administrative guidance, than in legal policy.
