Today’s OQMP was originally established in 2001 as the Division’s Quality Improvement, Audits and Technical Support Unit.  Consistent with the fulfillment of our Mission and Vision, this Unit has evolved over time.  Operational efficiency and effectiveness was enhanced in 2007 when the Unit was joined with the Office of Research and Planning, becoming the Office of Quality Management and Planning (OQMP).  Also in 2007, the Office of Risk Management (ORM) was created within OQMP to further the Division’s capacity to identify, anticipate and mitigate risks affecting service recipients.
