The objective of this audit was to determine whether SRS administered its Vocational Rehabilitation, Supported Employment, Independent Living Services, and Independent Living Services for Older Individuals Who are Blind programs in compliance with selected provisions of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and federal regulations. Due to other priorities, we are terminating the audit without completing all planned audit work. The work we performed was not extensive enough to answer the objective described above and would not necessarily disclose all material weaknesses in SRS’ administration of the above programs. The termination of this audit does not preclude future reviews of this or similar areas by the Office of Inspector General, and our review should not be construed as a substitute for any other reviews required by law, license, or accreditation. Also, the termination of this audit does not preclude the U.S. Department of Education from taking action concerning any aspect of the entities reviewed. We wish to express appreciation for the cooperation and assistance extended by your staff during the review. Should you have any questions regarding this review, please contact me at (312) 730-1620. No response to this letter is required. Sincerely, /s/ Gary D. Whitman Regional Inspector General for Audit cc: Andrew J. Pepin, Executive Administrator, OSERS Edward Anthony, Deputy Commissioner, RSA The Department of Education's mission is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.
