Uniform Licensing Application Process

We are pleased to announce that our agencies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding regarding the creation of a Uniform Licensing Application and the operation of a web-based filing and storage system for required licensing documents.

Our goal in developing this common application and utilizing the web-based system is to improve the efficiency of the licensing process by consolidating the requirements of each agency's licensing process and eliminating unnecessary duplication of documents submitted for licensing purposes.

This should enhance the quality of licensing interactions between DCF, DDS and DPH and the organizations that provide services and supports to the public utilizing these licenses.

We are utilizing the DAS-BIZNET system, that most of you already use, to collect and store license applications and other required licensing documentation.  This will limit the need for these forms to be submitted multiple times to different or individual state agencies.

We will be rolling out the single license application and web-based system as part of your regular licensing cycle.  Use of the Uniform Licensing Application and the DAS-BIZNET site began in April 2014.

We have implemented this uniform licensing application and online posting process for the following licenses and services:
