DOJ Implementation Issue

February 23, 2020

We will reorganize the DOJ information posted to give us a place to collect posts re issues with the DOJ implementation – look for an announcement later this week!  In the meantime, here is a significant issue, that caught us a bit by surprise:
  • The compliance which is determined by QMR Reviews for providers implementing the basic training and competencies for DSPs and Supervisors is apparently falling well below the expected and accepted level.
  • The memo (1 September, 2016) is linked here – there was a follow-up memo on 1 September, 2017 which clarified issues relating to the advanced competencies, but the basic instructions are contained in this memo.
  • If, for any reason, you are not in compliance – this is a very good time to start!
We also want to share a brief presentation about building a Quality Program – another significant DOJ implementation issue!
