RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
The Administration and Support program in Northwest Developmental Center is funded from a combination of interagency transfers and fees and self-generated revenues. The interagency transfer means of financing includes: Title XIX reimbursement for services provided to Medicaid-eligible residents through the Department of Health and Hospitals, Medical Vendor Payments Program; funds provided from the Department of Education for the Special Milk Program; and payment for support services provided to the Pines Inpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Center; Special School District Number 1; and the Department of Transportation and Development. Self-generated revenues include receipts from pay telephones, and payments from patients for services based on a sliding fee scale.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 99.7% of the existing operating budget. It represents 83.9% of the total request ($5,455,911) for this program. The net decrease in expenditure authority for this program is primarily due to risk management premiums which decreased by $33,731 in interagency transfer means of financing. Three authorized positions were transferred to Peltier-Lawless Developmental Center per the request of the Department of Health and Hospitals. Full funding has been provided for all 63 recommended positions, including an increase of $20,550 in interagency transfer funding for salaries and related benefits.
