BECOMING A DSB QUALIFIED SERVICE PROVIDER
DSB established a qualification process for service providers based on standards established by the Washington State Human Resources job classification specifications, national certification boards and industries that are applicable.
When a service provider is employed in an occupation for which national, state or industry standards have not been established, DSB may adopt standards as appropriate to ensure quality services.
In addition, all providers who have unsupervised access to DSB customers must go through a national, fingerprint-based background check and receive clearance to become qualified.
Potential contractors are required to complete a Qualified Service Provider Application and meet the requirements as listed in the DSB Qualified Service Provider Information Packet. Subcontractors may not be utilized in providing the vocational rehabilitation services listed above.
