Sub-Regulatory Guidance

Sub-Regulatory Guidance


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:

  1. implementing or substantiating the letter and/or intent of relevant law and regulations; and
  2. ensuring the proper management by such laws and regulations.
