The Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 (Evidence Act) requires changes to how Federal agencies manage and use the information they collect and emphasizes the strategic use of data. As required by the Evidence Act's Open Data Plan, RSA is committed to making the data it collects from grantees "open by default" and available to the public to use for a variety of purposes. RSA acknowledges that Open Data supports the performance and fiscal accountability of the programs it administers. We also know that data-driven decisions lead to better outcomes for individuals with disabilities who are served by these programs.
RSA collects data through several information collections in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act and as approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Several of these information collections are listed in the table below. In Spring 2021, RSA will begin to publish reports submitted by grantees across Federal Fiscal Years 2016 to 2020. This process will be incremental and not all reports will be available at once. To access available reports, select the hyperlink in the column labeled Form #.
This table of reports is not exhaustive considering some reports are published elsewhere in different formats, such as WIOA Annual Reports; WIOA Unified and Combined State Plans; Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Program Monitoring Reports; Randolph-Sheppard Arbitration Panel Decisions; and Annual Reports to Congress. To request data collected through the Case Service Report (RSA-911) related to the State VR Services and State Supported Employment Services programs, please email RSAData@ed.gov.
RSA welcomes feedback from the public and grantees related to its Open Data approach.
