Progress Report: Blind Babies Program Improves Several Primary Functions, But Monitoring Is Still Weak, Report No. 03-50, September 2003
Full report in PDF format

The Division of Blind Services has implemented several of our recommendations.  However, the division needs to take additional steps to publicize its services, although program utilization has increased.  Also, while the division has developed performance measures and included them in Fiscal Year 2003-04 contracts with providers, its monitoring of providers is weak and provider performance on key measures varies substantially.

What were our earlier findings?

Report No. 01-42 Special Review: Blind Babies Program Not Effectively Implemented; Continued Funding by State Cannot Be Justified, published in September 2001.
