Tremendous variation in the license and registration process across the districts and state.

Biggest Change:
The team developed and documented a standardized and streamlined process across the state, with roles and responsibilities defined.

Other Changes:
A formalized outreach process is now in place for customers. • Forms were mistake-proofed (poka-yoke) to ensure that only required information is requested. • Format of the paper forms was revised for ease of completion by applicants -- and these revised forms will be mirrored when electronic versions are finalized.
