The Bureau of Human Services Licensing (BHSL) indicates that it is working on the issues related to the Certification and Licensing System (CLS) to streamline the department’s licensing process. BHSL Director Melusky has shared a letter addressing the modification process to address some of these concerns. There are two more CLS monthly calls May 1 and June 5 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Register at http://documents.odpconsulting.net/alfresco/d/d/workspace/SpacesStore/4094e871-2769-48c2-8055-d489f575df69/Final_CLS_Call_Original_Select_05082012.html.

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has released Announcement #031-13: Migration of the Excluded Parties Lists System (EPLS) to the System for Award Management. Effective November 21, 2012, the Excluded Parties List System database was migrated in the system for Award Management (SAM). All waiver providers must determine if employees and contractors have been excluded from receiving payments through the waivers. Providers are now responsible to check the SAM web site (www.sam.gov) to comply with federal and state laws on EPLS issues.

The Annual Statewide IM4Q Training is July 23 - 24 at the Harrisburg Hilton. Pre-registration is available at www.temple.edu/instituteondisabilities/register/im4q.

Don’t forget to share discussion and/or presentation topics with Linda Drummond (linda@paproviders.org) for the June 18 IDD Committee and SCO Subcommittee meetings.
