  6. 7. Goal 1: Document TWC Interactions To provide TWC administrators with pertinent information regarding how the Agency and Local Workforce Development Boards are interacting with the Texas and regional economy. Specifically how the TWC interacts with Texas industry sectors. This knowledge will be useful for reporting requirements and marketing within Texas industry segments and as a guidepost for the allocation and dispersion of targeted education and skills training funds.
  7. 8. Goal 2: Provide Data & Tools for Regional Economic Development To provide persons engaged in Texas economic development access to decision-critical information about the dynamics of the Texas and regional economies . This system will focus on aspects of industry employment dynamics , regional characteristics , availability of labor supply , industry clustering and related analyses to provide a foundation for economic development activities. Analytical functions will overlap, or be integrated with, the SOCRATES targeting system.
