  • Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE) is unsubsidized employment.
  • Due to a two-quarter lag in unemployment insurance wage data, information for this indicator is reported in the sixth quarter after exit.
  • Participants with both successful and unsuccessful outcomes are included in this indicator, unless they are excluded from the agency’s performance.
  • This is not a retention measure. It is exclusively measuring the rate of participants who exited the VR program and who are employed in the fourth quarter after exit.
