MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
ACCES-VR Data – The Committee was provided with a review of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) data that state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies are required to collect. In 2014, WIOA was signed into law to help job seekers access employment, education training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy through a nationwide system for workforce development. WIOA compliance requires the reporting of over forty data elements per individual receiving VR services. ACCES-VR has 15 district offices and 10 satellite offices who provide services to approximately 93,000 New Yorkers a year. The District Office managers monitor monthly performance reports for each of their offices on the entire VR process. They also track the outcomes of participants receiving services.
