Office of Licensing and Monitoring is Disbanded
June 16, 2003

The Department of Public Welfare Office of Licensing and Monitoring has been closed. Most of the staff transferred to the Office of Social Programs, which has had difficulty with retention of employees for the past few years. PCPA made an informal recommendation to members of Governor Rendell’s transition team that the Office of Licensing and Monitoring probably was not necessary and that money could be saved by closing it. It is evident that others agreed with the Association. Many members will remember this office as the “Cross System Licensing Office” and will not mourn its demise.
