“The Governor’s Executive Order recognizes the strategic importance of improving the work and economic opportunities of all Oregonians including those with I/DD. More specifically, the Order sets forth strategies to be followed by the DHS and the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to further improve Oregon’s systems of designing and providing employment services to individuals with I/DD, including a significant reduction over time of state support of sheltered work and an increased investment in employment services. The strategies and planned actions are targeted to increase and improve the delivery of employment services to individuals with I/DD with the goal of increasing integrated employment. The Executive Order calls for regular monitoring of the progress through ‘data collection, data analysis and quality improvement activities.’ This report serves as one step in continuing to implement the Order.”
