Abstract

The purpose of this policy and procedure manual is to establish operational policies for the Business Enterprise Program (BEP), which is part of The Iowa Department for the Blind (IDB). IDB is the State Licensing Agency (SLA) for the Randolph-Sheppard Program, referred to in this manual as the SLA or BEP, in accordance with the federal statutory provisions of the Randolph-Sheppard Act, 20 USC Sections 107 et seq. and Iowa code chapter 216D, in instances where there appear to be conflict between the BEP policy and procedure manual and the Randolph-Sheppard Act, Randolph- Sheppard takes precedence. This manual does not guarantee a contract of employment, express or implied, between the BEP and the Licensed Blind Vendor. This policy and procedure manual reflects the cooperative planning and mutually shared input of the SLA and the Iowa ELECTED COMMITTEE OF BLIND VENDORS (ECBV), both of whom have had a vital part in its formulation and upon whom the future success and continuing improvement of the BEP depends. The policies and procedures may be revised and amended at any time by BEP, with active participation from the ECBV. All Licensed Blind Vendors will receive a copy of this policy and procedure manual upon its final approval by the SLA and the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA). If there are any changes, the Licensed Blind Vendors will be notified in writing. All new Licensed Blind Vendors will be provided a copy of the policy and procedure manual upon entering the BEP training program.
