DCAS is the District’s state-of-the-art health and human services solution, which once fully integrated, will serve as the platform to provide the District with a modern integrated eligibility system for Medicaid, Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and other programs with new case management capabilities that span programs and agencies, including functionalities mandated by the Affordable Care Act. The primary function of the DCASPMA is to act as the primary authority on budget implementation and is responsible for the management and execution of all tasks related to the design, build, testing, supporting functionality and funding for all components of DCAS and their seamless interface with the Health Benefits Exchange (HBX) and the DC Department of Human Services (DHS) program components.
We are recruiting intermediate and senior level positions to be a part of the DCAS team. We encourage everyone to pre-register for the event. During the event, preference will be given to District residents between the hours of 10am – 2pm and open to the public from 2pm – 7pm. If you have demonstrated knowledge and experience with Information Technology, Medicaid, TANF or SNAP eligibility requirements, we encourage you to apply for any of the following positions:

The Ward 5 Democratic Committee is extending an invite to DC Democratic State Committee Candidates to attend its next Ward 5 Dems meeting to be held on Monday, April 23, 2018 at the UDC Bertie Backus Campus located at 5171 South Dakota Avenue, NE. Free parking can be accessed from Galloway Street.
Our regular business meeting will go from 6:30 to about 7:30pm, at which time the meeting will open up to allow each slate 10 minutes for introductions and to let the audience know why you are running. The Ward 5 Dems would ask each slate to allow those Ward 5 At-Large and Committeeman/Committeewoman candidates be given time to speak since the membership is keenly interested in hearing from them. Individuals who are running for Committeeman or Committeewoman who are not on a slate will be given two minutes to speak.
Candidates running for National Committeeman, National Committeewoman, United States Shadow Senator and United States Shadow Representatives will also be given 2 minutes to speak.
DC Democratic State Committee Chair Anita Bonds will give an overview of the DCDSC and its mission, as many members are not familiar with the organization.
It is requested that your literature and signage remain on the outside of the building.
Please RSVP to me.
