This should do.

dn = Map[FromDigits[#, 10] &,
   Partition[IntegerDigits[111205020000, 10], 2]];
dn[[1]] += 2000;

DateString[dn]

{11,12,05,02,00,00} and replace the first 11 with 2011, the Date commands would work fine. I can do the replacing, but am having difficulty seeing how to split the number into  {11,12,05,02,00,00}.
