RSA’s Independent Living Unit Currently Recruiting Non-Federal Reviewers

The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), Independent Living Unit, is recruiting nonfederal reviewers for their onsite monitoring of Centers for Independent Living (CILs) in compliance with Section 723(g) (1) and (h) of the Rehabilitation Act and Section 366.38 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Individuals with experience in independent living are invited to apply to become a nonfederal reviewer for future CIL monitoring reviews.

Each review may be from two to five days in duration. An honorarium is paid at $200.00 per day while onsite, along with related travel expenses, lodging, per diem, and other expenses as required.

The role of the non-federal reviewer is to provide a “real-world” perspective on the policies, procedures, initiatives, and performance of the Center being reviewed. That same perspective allows the non-federal reviewer to provide technical assistance to or be a sounding board for the leadership of the Center facilitating an exchange of information and ideas regarding IL service provision. An RSA staff person knowledgeable about the provision of independent living services leads the review team and is responsible for completing all required components of the review and the timely completion of reports. 

If you are interested, please provide RSA with your resume, including a description of your independent living experience and knowledge. Make sure you or your employer is registered with the System for Award Management (SAM). If you are not registered, RSA asks that you register and provide them with a copy of SAM notification.

If you have any questions, you may contact Veronica Hogan at 202-245-7378 or veronica.hogan@ed.gov.
