Abstract

This dataset provides information on the results of assessments conducted by the Department of Disability Services on residential providers. The Mission of the Department on Disability Services is to provide innovative, high quality services that enable people with disabilities to lead meaningful and productive lives as vital members of their families, schools, workplaces and communities in every neighborhood in the District of Columbia. In April 2007, the Department on Disability Services (DDS) through the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) began assessing residential providers. The Basic Assurance Standards Authorization (BASA) is the current provider review process that assesses whether a provider is performing in accordance with the DDS, Human Care Agreement to provide supports and services to people with disabilities in the District of Columbia. There are seven (7) standards assessed. Each one measures in some part how well a provider protects the health, safety, and well being of people. When the BASA assessment is passed, it demonstrates that the provider has the ability to ensure people are treated with respect and dignity and are free from abuse, neglect, and mistreatment. More information about the BASA assessment is provided on the DDS website.

The mission of the Citywide Data Warehouse is to provide timely and accurate information for decision-making; support executive and agency management in the implementation of business processes which will guarantee access to useful and well-organized information for DC Government workers, non-governmental organizations, and the public.
