Applicable portions of the Rehabilitation Act explicitly or implicitly require the recording and reporting of specific data elements by state VR agencies to the RSA. Section 13 of the Act requires the Commissioner to collect and report information specified in section 101(a)(10) to the Congress and the President in the Annual Report. Section 14 of the Act requires the Commissioner to conduct evaluations of the VR program. The information from this data collection is used in evaluating the outcomes of the program. Section 626 requires the same information to be reported for individuals who received supported employment (SE) services. RSA-911 data are also needed to satisfy the requirements of Section 131 calling for an exchange of data between RSA, the Social Security Administration and the Department of Labor.
