RSA Monitoring Redesign Initiative Informational Booklet #1
US Department of Education
This informational booklet contains background materials regarding the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) initiative to redesign its monitoring system. The booklet is intended to expand the knowledge and understanding of those individuals selected to participate in the RSA-sponsored monitoring conference that was held August 24 and 25, 2005, and to inform other interested stakeholders of the progress being made in this important endeavor. A primary objective of the monitoring redesign effort is to ensure that the new process not only meets federal goals and legislative requirements but also takes into account the needs and priorities of stakeholders of the public VR system, including state VR agencies, consumer and advocacy groups, community partners and providers, state rehabilitation councils and other relevant federal agencies. The objective of the August monitoring conference was to obtain input from these stakeholder groups on RSA?s monitoring process. This booklet contains basic information regarding: (1) the legislative basis for RSA monitoring activities; and (2) the recent RSA restructuring.
