Working Title: GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS CONSULTANT II OPS - 60903306

Position Number: 60903306

Salary: $22.00

Posting Closing Date: 03/04/2021

The successful applicant for this position will become a Substance Use Licensure Policy Specialist and will help ensure substance use treatment services in Florida are safe by monitoring the enforcement of all applicable laws, rules, and regulations.

The substance use program licensure process is focused on the health, safety, and welfare of vulnerable Floridians and thousands of out-of-state individuals who come to Florida seeking substance use treatment each year. A successful policy specialist:

  • Conducts research

  • Develops modified or new policy to adapt to changes in statute

  • Answers policy questions for department staff, treatment providers, and the public

In addition, the successful applicant will interact with over 30 department staff across Florida who are responsible for the licensure process at the local level. The entities the department licenses range from small programs with less than five employees to larger organizations with more than 50 employees on multiple campuses. Some programs focus on indigent individuals with few financial resources while others focus on those who can pay for services with insurance or with their own funds. In short, every provider (and the policy issue(s) they have) can be different.
