Declaration of Order of Selection (OOS)

DECLARATION OF ORDER OF SELECTION FOR VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION SERVICES

Whereas, on August 18, 1995, the Department of Rehabilitation (Department) first declared that the Department was under Order of Selection for Vocational Rehabilitation Services and determined that no priority categories could then be served, and,

Whereas, on June 15, 2012, effective July 2, 2012, the Department's Director declared that projected resources were not adequate to serve all individuals in priority categories defined in California Code of Regulations, title 9, section 7053, and that resources were adequate to serve Priority Category One, regardless of the date of application, Priority Category Two, limited to applications submitted by June 30, 2013, and Category Three, limited to applications submitted by March 30, 2011 and,

Whereas, the Department has reviewed projected resources and projected costs for state fiscal year 2013-14, which starts July 1, 2013 and ends June 30, 2014, as provided by California Code of Regulations, title 9, section 7052(a) and determined that projected resources continue to be inadequate to meet all the projected costs for state fiscal year 2013-14; projected resources remain sufficient only to continue to serve eligible individuals with the most significant disabilities, Priority Category One, who apply on or before June 30, 2014, individuals with significant disabilities, Priority Category Two, who apply on or before June 30, 2014, and, all other eligible individuals with disabilities, Priority Category Three, who applied on or before June 15, 2013 and have not withdrawn their application or been removed from the Waiting List due to failure to confirm continued interest in receiving vocational rehabilitation services.

Now, therefore, I, Anthony "Tony" P. Sauer, Director of the Department of Rehabilitation, declare that effective July 1, 2013, the Department shall serve individuals in Priority Category One and Priority Category Two who apply on or before June 30, 2014, Priority Category Three, who applied on or before June 15, 2013 including individuals who are current on the Waiting List.
