Performance Based Contracting Meetings

DASA continues to move forward with the Performance Based Contracting meetings. If you have participated at prior meetings, your added voice is appreciated. Each meeting leads to valued results that bring us closer to establishing the necessary performance processing information needed to launch the overall plan and to generate reports based on these outcome measures. In the meantime, there is still more work to be done.

An initial meeting to discuss the Performance Measures for Recovery Homes was held January 22. It was stated at the end of the meeting that a follow-up meeting would be scheduled to complete the discussion and to reach a majority agreement on the recommended measures. To finish the task at hand, we are now scheduling the follow-up meeting to decide the recommendations for these process measures.

If you are interested in this decision-making process, please plan to join us. The meeting will involve a review of the earlier recommendations and will allow for your input and feedback as well.
