State Council for Persons with Disabilities


Employment First Goals & Objectives

Performance Metrics

The law requires the Commission to do the following:

§ 747. Powers and duties of Commission.
(a) The Commission shall review measurable goals and objectives as submitted to it by each relevant state agency to ensure implementation of this Act. The Commission shall track the measurable progress of state agencies in implementing this Act. All state agencies shall fully cooperate with and provide data and information to assist the Commission in carrying out its duties.


The Employment First Oversight Commission surveys state agencies each fiscal year to measure the amount of their state funding and grant funding that is dedicated to competitive employment services for individuals with disabilities. The Commission uses this data to help agencies measure their compliance with the Employment First public policy.
