The National Council on Disability (NCD) seeks to hire an Attorney Advisor for the independent Federal agency, subject to the provisions of title 5 USC and established by the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by PL 98-221, dated February 22, 1984.  NCD staff supports Council members who are appointed by either the President or, as the terms of current NCD members expire -- the Senate Majority Leader, the Senate Minority Leader, the Speaker of the House, and/or the House Minority Leader.

NCD advises the President, the Congress, other Federal entities, the states, and occasionally international entities on policies and programs that promote full inclusion, independence and equal opportunity for people with disabilities.  The Council sets its agenda using a strategic planning process and communicates its priorities via the issuance of a five-year Strategic Plan.  NCD is a key contributor to the development and implementation of policies and practices affecting the disability community.
