Advisory Committee on Increasing Competitive Integrated Employment for Individuals with Disabilities Releases Interim Report

September 30, 2015

The Advisory Committee on Increasing Competitive Integrated Employment for Individuals with Disabilities (ACICIEID) recently released its interim report. 

ACICIEID, created through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), is comprised of both federal officials and private citizens, in accordance with the stipulation in WIOA. These 18 disability-related employment experts, appointed by the Secretary of Labor, are responsible for providing the Secretary with an interim report (and eventual final report) containing an assessment of the current state of affairs with respect to employment for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).

This interim report is divided into several subject areas and contains information related to the prevalence of segregated sub-minimum wage work environments for individuals with I/DD, and provides preliminary recommendations on how to begin to increase the number of individuals in integrated competitive employment.

The ACICIEID will continue its work for an additional year, at which time a final report will be released. We encourage you to attend the quarterly public meetings and to provide input when solicited.
