The DOC Program Manager submits one 2015 SYEP Host Employer Application for the entire Department.
DC DOES is responsible for the recruitment, paperwork, and wages payment for all participants.
The DOC Program Manager coordinates placements with the hosting offices and DC DOES, including facilitating the selection process by hosting offices.
Hosting offices are responsible for making selections, providing assignments and guidance, and verifying timecards.
