As introduced Bill 23-570 requires the Department of Employment Services ("DOES") to permit organizations to provide DOES with qualified candidates for inclusion in the First Source Register. The register was established to ensure that District residents are given priority for new jobs created by municipal financing and development programs. It requires DOES to proactively identify individuals who are "hard to serve" and to develop standard operating procedures for its role in First Source. Among other things, it requires that the workforce intermediary program be used exclusively for First Source projects or contracts.
