Issue 1. The Division's Rehabilitation Services Have a Positive Impact on the
Earnings and Work Continuity of Individuals with Disabilities.
Issue 2. The West Virginia Rehabilitation Center and its Hospital are Seriously Underutilized Causing a Disproportionate Allocation of Funds Which Should be Available Statewide.
This report is the second update of the Division of Rehabilitation Services since the original January 1996 report. The first update of the Division was delivered in February of 1997. Since the majority of recommendations in the February 1997 report were not in full compliance, the Legislative Auditor recommended that the Division be given a one year continuance, thus requiring additional monitoring of the agency. This update report uses the following categories to measure agency compliance with recommendations of the original report.
|Levels of Compliance|
|In Compliance - The Agency has corrected the problems identified in the final draft of the audit report.|
|Partial Compliance - The Agency has partially corrected the problems identified in the final draft of the audit report.|
|Planned Compliance - The Agency has not corrected the problem but has provided sufficient documentary evidence to find that the agency will do so in the future.|
|In Dispute - The Agency does not agree with either the problem identified or the proposed solution.|
|Non-Compliance - The Agency has not corrected the problem identified in the final draft of the audit report.|
|Requires Legislation - Statutory change is necessary to address the issue.|
