Full report in PDF format

  • The Legislature adopted our recommendation and transferred the Division of Blind Services from the Department of Education to the Department of Labor and Employment Security.
  • The Department of Labor and Employment Security has assessed a lower indirect cost rate to the division for administrative purposes, allowing more federal funds to be used for client services.
  • The Legislature did not move the Braille and Talking Book Library for the Blind to the Department of State, as we recommended, but relocated it to the Department of Labor and Employment Security with other blind services.
  • The Division of Blind Services has developed comprehensive performance measures as we recommended and proposed that they be used in performance-based program budgeting for the 1998-99 fiscal year.
