VR Program Monitoring and Technical Assistance

Statutory Authority

Section 107 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by title IV of WIOA, requires the Commissioner of the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to conduct annual reviews and periodic on-site monitoring of programs authorized under Title I of the Rehabilitation Act, as amended, to determine whether a VR agency is complying substantially with the provisions of its State Plan under Section 101 and with the Evaluation Standards and Performance Indicators established under Section 106.

VR Program Monitoring Reports

VR program monitoring and technical assistance final reports are available beginning with Federal Fiscal year (FFY) 2007. RSA has also made available the relevant Monitoring and Technical Assistance Guide (MTAG) or other guides that RSA used each FFY.

Topical Index of VR Program Monitoring Findings

In response to Priority 4 of the ReThink VR Performance Plan, RSA developed a Topical Index of VR Monitoring Findings. This includes findings, observations, and recommendations that RSA has made from FY 2017 through FY 2021. The Index can serve as a technical assistance resource for VR agencies to assist with continuous improvement in program and fiscal performance. The Index is organized by topics and includes the year monitoring reports were published, links to the monitoring reports, and corresponding page numbers in the reports. RSA will update the Index annually to include findings from the most recent VR program monitoring reports.
