Administrative EN Models

A number of Employment Networks (ENs) have self-identified as Administrative ENs either in their business plans, in their responses to the Annual Performance Outcome Report (APOR), or by the Ticket to Work Ticket Program Manager (TPM). These ENs have been categorized as follows based on the type of organization assuming the EN of Record role.

Private-Sector Administrative EN Model: A private for-profit or non-profit organization functions as the EN of Record and provides administrative support for Ticket operations through an agreement with affiliate partners, other providers and/or individuals.

State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Agency Administrative EN Model: A State VR agency secures Ticket assignments and functions as the EN of Record, providing administrative support for Ticket operations through an agreement with VR vendors (EN and/or non-EN service providers) that typically provide employment service or other supports to VR consumers.

Public-Sector Workforce Agency Administrative EN Model: The State Workforce agency, the State Workforce Investment Board (WIB) or a local WIB functions as the EN of Record and provides administrative support for Ticket operations through an agreement with other workforce entities (e.g., American Job Centers) and/or community partners that provide employment services and other supports within the State's workforce development system.

State Agency Administrative EN Model: A State agency (e.g., the State Mental Health agency or the State Developmental Disabilities agency) functions as the EN of Record and provides administrative support for Ticket operations through an agreement with other state entities, affiliate organizations, EN providers, non-EN providers and/or other community partners qualified to provide appropriate employment services and other supports.
