How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Committee established on September 15, 2014 pursuant to section 609 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by section 461 of Workforce innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), relied on 7 federal members and approximately 15-17 representatives appointed by the Secretary of Labor representing statutorily designated constituencies, to develop and prepare its recommendations to the Secretary. As required by law, the Committee met no less than eight times, or approximately four times per year. The Committee was required to submit an interim report no later than September 15, 2015 and a final report no later than September 15, 2016. The Committee's recommendations were informed by significant input from not only the Committee members, but experts and stakeholders in the field and the general public. The Committee issued its interim and final reports on time.
How is membership balanced?*The statute provided for a balance of members from Federal agencies and identified constituent groups. The Committee had a balanced membership plan to ensure a it is fairly balanced. Factors that were considered include i) the Committee’s mission; ii) the geographic, ethnic, social and economic impact of the Committee’s recommendations; iii) the types of specific perspective required by Section 609 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by section 461 of WIOA, as noted above; iv) the need to obtain divergent viewpoints; and v) the relevance of State, local or tribal governments to the Committee recommendations. To the extent permitted by FACA and other laws, Committee membership was also consistent with achieving the greatest impact, scope, and credibility among diverse stakeholders. The diversity in such membership included, but was not limited to, race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - 4 Total Meetings - 10. During FY 2016, meeting took place on roughly a quarterly basis.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Committee was mandated under section 609 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by section 461 of WIOA. Increasing competitive integrated employment opportunities for people with intellectual, developmental, and significant disabilities can ensure that they are more fully included in our workplaces and communities, and have the opportunity to succeed in fulfilling careers. Because the use of the certificate program carried out under Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act can impact this goal, it was important to study and make recommendations on how it is used.
Why close or partially close meetings?Not applicable.
Recommendation RemarksDue to the breadth of the committee's scope and the aggressive two-year timeline, the annual operating cost for FY 16 exceeded the charter estimate.
