As the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) continues moving quickly on plans to migrate towards a performance-based contracting system, RCPA believes there is value in developing a work group for our members to keep informed and to prepare for future changes. We anticipate continuing to share news regarding any developments and updates from ODP and Strategic Thinking Work Group members both at these work group meetings and also in our IDD Committee meetings. More importantly, in this work group, we are encouraging discussion from members, with the goal of sharing thoughts and developing prudent strategies in order to prepare for performance-based contracting.
The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm. To begin this process, we will look at the proposed strategy from ODP and goals for the work group. As we move forward, we may determine it best to have meetings specific to Residential Services and Supports Coordination.
