(This amendment restores funding to the Office of Comprehensive Services for data analytics and program evaluation of the Comprehensive Services Act that was reduced in the introduced budget. Data analytics are a critical component to in allowing the program to analyze client specific expenditure, demographic, and assessment data in order to capture differences in youth outcomes and payments by locality. This information allows the program to identify localities, which despite unusually high spending, do not produce positive outcomes for youth; those localities whose per child expenditures or per service expenditures exceed regional and/or state norms; and those localities with high utilization of “high risk” providers. This information assists the program in ensuring program dollars are spent in an effective and cost efficient manner.)
