Florida Statute dictates that secure detention costs for pre-committed youth are the responsibility of the youth's county of residence. Each fiscal year the State Legislature determines the amount of money to be paid by the counties to the Department to cover their costs for secure detention. This amount is allocated among the counties based on their percentage of the total utilization of secure detention across the state. Post commitment costs are the responsibility of the Department.
At the beginning of each fiscal year an estimated allocation of funding is calculated and billed to each county based on their prior year's utilization. After the fiscal year has closed, a reconciliation of actual utilization and costs is done to determine the actual amount owed by each county for their share of the utilization. Adjustments are made to each county's account balance based on their actual utilization compared to the estimated utilization and cost figures. Debits and credits are issued as appropriate.
Documents related to each year's allocations are provided below sorted by fiscal year. Any questions regarding the information provided here can be directed to the Detention Cost Share Coordinator.
Because of the uncertainty around Detention Cost Sharing, the Department has been asked how it intends to proceed with challenges to the 2011-12 assessment of costs for pre-disposition secure detention. Currently, all challenges to previous reconciliations are being held in abeyance, either at the Division of Administrative Hearings or by the Department, until such time as there are final court rulings in the rule challenge or the 2008-2009 fiscal year challenge, or the Legislature takes dispositive action. In order to insure the counties can preserve their challenges to the 2011-12 fiscal year reconciliation, without the need to file monthly Administrative challenges, the Department will accept the monthly challenges filed by each county pursuant to Rule 63G-1.017, Rules of Administrative Procedure. The Department will respond pursuant to rule. A county that has filed its on-line challenge does not need to file an Administrative challenge to an adverse determination by the Department until the final reconciliation at the end of the fiscal year. However, a county that does not file its monthly on-line challenge may not bring such challenges at the end of the fiscal year. If you have any questions regarding this direction please contact Beth Davis at 850-414-8818.
