Information on this page supports the data required for the RSA-911 file. This information is designed to be used by state Vocational Rehabilitation agencies who are responsible for collecting the data. For any given fiscal year, the RSA-911 data contains a record of demographic and programmatic data for each person who exited the Vocational Rehabilitation program in that fiscal year.
VR agencies will begin submitting RSA-911 data consistent with PD-16-04 for PY 2017, which begins July 1, 2017. By July 1, 2017, each VR agency must ensure that:
- the agency’s data collection system is capable of capturing and reporting all the required data elements;
- VR staff have completed training necessary to ensure the collection and reporting of the required data elements; and
- the agency has implemented internal control processes to ensure the accuracy and validity of the data.
