Document Clearance Process for Information Bulletins and Manual Modifications
The purpose of this Information Bulletin is to inform all stakeholders and advocates about the process for developing and approving new or revised Information Bulletins and Manual Modifications issued by the Division of Developmental Disabilities. The intent of the process is to ensure stakeholders and advocates throughout the service delivery system have the opportunity for input to Bulletins and Manuals issued by the Division.
This process is meant to formalize communication between the Division and its stakeholders and advocates about important matters, while providing needed flexibility for operations. The Division is committed to posting new or revised documents as draft for comment; however, there may be times when operational needs would prevent this. An example of this might be the sudden adoption of statutory language with an immediate effective date. In such a case, the timeliness of new instructions might be more important than reviewing draft materials. The Division will work to ensure draft notice whenever possible.
If an individual has not registered to receive emails from the Division and would like to do so, he or she may register on the web site under our "DDD Email List". Executive Directors of developmental disabilities trade and advocacy organizations, as well as Executive Directors of provider organizations funded by the Division, receive emails automatically and need not register.
This Information Bulletin is effective immediately.
