Roadmap to System Excellence
Presentation for Contracted Providers Webinar
While DJJ is responsible for the administration and operation of the juvenile justice system throughout the state, 65 percent of DJJ’s services are delivered by more than 150 private providers with a budgeted expenditure of roughly $290 million annually. The department has comprehensive oversight procedures to ensure the youth are being appropriately served in environments that are most likely to aid in their rehabilitation, a responsibility that it takes very seriously.
DJJ recognizes that it can do more to ensure that the services it procures from these providers are directly aligned to outcomes to youth as well as facilitating sharing of best practices to deliver these outcomes between providers and DJJ staff. Undertaking system improvements to streamline provider management will lead to better services for our youth from these providers. In addition, these improvements will free up time and capacity for frontline program operational staff including those working directly with youth, who currently spend considerable time and effort on the management of these providers.
To increase efficiency, DJJ has embraced a more collaborative model known as shared services in which a team or group provides an agreed set of activities to one or more internal customers, usually across multiple locations, with oversight and regular review to ensure quality and timeliness.
For DJJ, this new structure will be organized in four different components, each representing a clearly defined part of provider-department interaction.
More information to individual components can be found using the links above. For more general information about the PMSS project, look at the files attached below or contact Amy Johnson, Director Office of Program Accountability (firstname.lastname@example.org).
