RSA establishes policy and prescribes the methods found necessary for the proper and efficient administration of the programs funded under the Acts for which RSA is responsible. These acts are: the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by title IV of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act; title I of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act jointly administered by RSA, the Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration and the Department of Education’s Office of Career Technical and Adult Education; the Randolph-Sheppard Act, as amended; and the Helen Keller National Center Act of 1984 (the Acts).
Policy is a formal statement, determined by the RSA commissioner, from among one or more legally supportable options, establishing conditions, relationships or conduct which are held to be necessary for:
implementing or substantiating the letter and/or intent of relevant law and regulations; and
ensuring the proper management by such laws and regulations.
