The mission of Workforce Investments is to pay compensation increases for nonunion and union District employees and Retirement Reform initiative costs.
The District budgets an amount for Workforce Investments for pay increases and reforms that are expected in the budgeted year but are not finalized. Employees covered and dollar amounts vary from year to year, depending on what compensation changes are final or still outstanding. In FY 2014, Workforce Investments includes the budget for a proposed Cost of Living Adjustment. The Office of Budget and Planning develops estimates for the Workforce Investments budget in consultation with the D.C. Department of Human Resources, the Office of Labor Relations and Collective Bargaining, the Mayor’s Office of Budget and Finance, and the Office of the City Administrator.
