Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
There is no change to Net County Cost associated with this Amendment I to Agreement 001-S1310.  Sufficient appropriations were budgeted in Fiscal Year ("FY") 2012-13 and will be budgeted in FY 2013-14.
Background
JDT Consultants provides Therapeutic Behavioral Services ("TBS") on an "as requested" basis via a network of TBS providers in a variety of locations throughout the State.  TBS is considered a specialty mental health treatment in accordance with California Code of Regulations Title 9, Chapter 11, and a one-to-one behavioral mental health service available to children/youth with serious emotional challenges who are under age 21 and are eligible for Medi-Cal benefits.  TBS is designed to help children/youth and parents/caregivers manage behavior utilizing short-term, measurable goals based on the needs of the child/youth and family.  The goal of TBS is to help children avoid being placed in a higher level of care such as a residential treatment facility or to help children make a successful move to a lower level of care such as returning home after residential treatment.
Agreement 001-S1310 with JDT Consultants for the provision of TBS with a maximum obligation of $25,000 for the term July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013 was approved and executed by the Purchasing Agent on June 19, 2012.
Reason for Recommendation
The Health and Human Services Agency, Mental Health Division ("HHSA") has experienced higher than anticipated usage of services from JDT Consultants over the last few months.  Approval of this Amendment I to Agreement 001-S1310 will extend the term through June 30, 2014, increase the not-to-exceed amount to $250,000, and will ensure ongoing availability of TBS for children/youth in need of such services.
Action(s) to be taken following Board approval
1.      Board Chair to sign two (2) Amendments I to Agreement 001-S1310.
2.      Board Clerk's Office to return one (1) fully executed Amendment I to HHSA at 3057 Briw Road.
3.      HHSA to distribute documents as appropriate.
