Program Description


The Administration program provides policy development and leadership for all programs within the Department. Staff specialists are responsible for a full range of administrative, financial, and budgetary tasks, including daily operations, revenue collection (fees and development taxes and charges), reporting and management, automation, human resources, fleet management, training, safety, quality assurance, legislative coordination, space management, historic files maintenance, and management services. This program provides outreach, customer service satisfaction and case management, which coordinates DPS disciplines engaged in plan reviews on complex projects or projects needing a higher level of assistance such as "green tape" projects (i.e., affordable housing; and areas such as the Silver Spring, Wheaton, and Long Branch enterprise zones; strategic economic development projects; strategic redevelopment areas such as White Flint, and faith-based institutions). This program receives complaints, processes information requests, maintains the DPS website, publishes the DPS newsletter, and coordinates outreach events and seminars for residents, civic organizations, and professionals.
