  6. Application for SFY16 Contracts
    Chairman Jacobs explained the contracts for 2016. The operation, analysis and program focus was reviewed. They discussed the use of a "letter of intent". The group discussed the timelines, calendar of meetings to process and deadlines, amounts of contracts, etc. The IJJC plans to be stricter with amounts allotted as it appears the agencies did not spend what they thought. Juvenile Justice Councils will be mandated, also fulfilling the JCEC role, and we will incorporate deliverables and deadlines for councils. Juvenile Justice Council will create a local plan and applications for funding should support this plan. The group discussed the current priority areas. Some of the JABG contracts we currently have we inherited and we need to change that and make them collaborative with Councils as a priority, no isolated proposals. The Planning and Grants Committee is to get approval from the Executive Committee for the strategy it develops and recommends. Commissioner Biehl motioned to approve this plan of action. Commissioner Velasquez seconded the motion. All in favor, motion passed.
