ODP Regulation Revisions Input Needed
July 13, 2011

The new Department of Public Welfare secretary has expressed interest in reviewing regulations, especially those that add cost but not value to the system. PCPA developed a list of problematic regulations in 2004. While these cover multiple systems, there are several that apply to the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP)-funded system.

The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Committee is being asked to:

  1. Volunteer for a PCPA IDD subcommittee reviewing current ODP regulations and making recommendations for changes. This subcommittee will meet by conference call beginning in mid-August. Please contact Linda Drummond (linda@paproviders.org) if interested in serving.
  2. Review the PCPA 2004 Problematic Regulations document sections that relate to IDD services and provide input and recommendations to Linda Drummond by July 30.
Provide recommendations regarding current regulations and the issues which impact agencies and services, including how these can be changed or eliminated. Submit his information by August 10 to Linda Drummond.
