Section 107(a) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Act), 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 Act to determine whether a vocational rehabilitation (VR) agency is complying substantially with the provisions of its State Plan under Section 101 of the Act and with the evaluation standards and performance indicators established under Section 106 of the Act, which are subject to the performance accountability measures in section 116(b) of WIOA and 34 CFR part 361, subpart E. To fulfill, in part, this requirement, RSA has developed this Monitoring and Technical Assistance Guide (MTAG), to provide technical assistance to and review the progress of VR agencies toward compliance with new legislative requirements.
