Task Force on the Delivery of Human Services

 

Overview

​The Task Force on the Delivery of Human Services was established by SB 450 (2013). Its directive is to:
  1. Study the delivery of human services in this state and what is currently being done by the state agencies to streamline case management and to help persons who are involved in the systems or who are seeking assistance to access and navigate the systems;
  2. Investigate models for the delivery of human services in other states;
  3. Identify existing regulatory barriers that prevent a unified human services delivery system;
  4. Determine which human service programs and services are conductive to a unified delivery system and which programs and services must remain separate but should closely coordinate with a unified human services delivery system;
  5. Investigate how to improve information systems and the feasibility of creating a shared database; and
  6. Investigate ways to use existing facilities more efficiently.

The task force shall submit a preliminary report to the interim committees of the Legislative Assembly related to human services, housing and corrections, as appropriate, no later than February 15, 2014. The task force shall submit a final report of its findings to the appropriate committees of the Legislative Assembly no later than February 15, 2015.
