In October 2004, APD became an agency separate from the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), specifically tasked with serving the needs of Floridians with developmental disabilities. Prior to that time, it existed as the Development Disabilities Program within DCF.
APD supports persons with developmental disabilities in living, learning, and working in their communities. APD is responsible for providing services to persons with developmental disabilities, including the operation of all state institutional programs and the programmatic and operational management of Medicaid home and community based waivers established to provide services to persons with developmental disabilities.
One of the core objectives is to increase our Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) maturity in the Care Management Business Area by improving the needs of the individual member, their treatment plan needs, health outcomes and health status.
APD currently relies heavily on manual processes, along with legacy systems to collect and track data consistently and accurately. As a result, there is very limited capability to collect, track, report, and analyze critical data for detection and prevention of fraud, waste and abuse and for needed oversight of the service system.
APD has initiatives and projects underway to increase program accountability, to provide an automated interface with FMMIS, to ensure federal funding is maintained for services, and most importantly, to assure customer health and safety needs are met.

The Senior Project Manager / Program Manager (Senior PM) will provide direction and leadership to project team members for the Client Data Management System (CDMS) and other projects as assigned by the Agency. The CDMS project is a highly cross‐matrixed and medium to high complexity project. The Senior PM will need to work across multiple IT groups and with multiple business teams to accomplish project objectives and help deliver the project on time and within budget.
