Project to Develop BEH Waiver Requirements, Procedures, and Criteria. Report of Federal Monitoring Practices.
Lewis, Linda M.; And Others
The document analyzes monitoring procedures in use by other federal programs in an attempt to help the Bureau of Education for the Handicapped (BEH) develop its own procedures for waiver reviews. Waivers are explained as a request for exemption from P.L. 94-142's (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) fiscal non-supplant requirements. The analysis is based on monitoring methods used in 11 other federal agencies for such programs as Occupational Health Programming (Department of Labor), Advertising Practices (Federal Trade Commission), Office for Civil Rights (Department of Health, Education and Welfare), Regulations Analysis (Environmental Protection Agency), and the Food Stamp Program (Department of Agriculture). The conclusion relates the BEH waiver review monitoring process to three dimensions: the subjects of monitoring, the orientation of the monitoring function, and the locus of responsibility for monitoring. Three monitoring practices considered most applicable to BEH are discussed: consumer participation, thoroughness and intensity of monitoring, and personnel utilization. (CL)
