The Department of Enterprise Services is rescheduling the policy workshop initially set for June 3. The workshop will now be held Aug. 18.
DES rescheduled the workshop to do additional concentrated work with key partners as well as advisory groups. DES believes this additional work will bring clarity that will lead to more productive discussions and feedback at the workshop.
After the concentrated stakeholder work, DES anticipates sending the initial discussion draft out for wide review and comment at least two weeks prior to the workshop. DES will take comments on the draft for 90 days, including during the workshop.
