Discussion of Improvement Activities Completed and Explanation of Progress or Slippage that occurred for FFY09/SFY10:

In FFY09/SFY10, one mediation request was received, resulting in a mediation agreement that was pending on 6/30/10 but signed on 7/1/10. In FFY08/SFY09, one mediation was held, resulting in a mediation agreement.

Bureau staffing levels have remained stable to facilitate timely resolution. An electronic database is used to track mediations.

Revisions, with Justification, to Proposed Targets / Improvement Activities / Timelines / Resources for FFY09/SFY10:

The State Performance Plan (SPP) has been revised to specify, for each indicator, annual targets and improvement activities for each year through FFY2012 (July1, 2012 through June 30, 2013. Since baseline data and data for subsequent years included less than 10 mediations per year, it did not seem reasonable to continue to propose targets, as they probably should not have initially been established. It was not clear if OSEP would allow this change. As a result, it was determined to keep the 2011 and 2012 target values at the FFY2010/SFY2011 level of 94%.

FFY Measurable and Rigorous Target

?FFY Measurable and Rigorous Target
2011 (2011-2012) 95 percent of mediations held will result in mediation agreements.
2010 (2012-2013) 95 percent of mediations held will result in mediation agreements.

The improvement activities described in the SPP are ongoing efforts.
