The Department of Human Services (DHS), Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is pleased to announce the release of Bulletin 00-20-04: “Participant-Directed Services: Agency with Choice Financial Management Services Model”. This bulletin obsoletes and replaces ODP Bulletin 00-08-08: “Agency with Choice Financial Management Services (AWC FMS)”.
There have been extensive changes in ODP’s waivers, regulations, and structure in the 12 years since Bulletin 00-08-08 was issued. Bulletin 00-20-04, which was developed with significant stakeholder input, updates and modernizes ODP’s expectations for AWC operations to reflect contemporary practices in service delivery.
ODP intends to provide targeted training and education sessions on Bulletin 00-20-04 as soon as it can be accomplished. See the following attachments for additional information:
