Department's Assertion Page Number
Block Grants for Community Mental Health Services Mental Health does not have an official written policy or procedures in place to ensure administrative costs are charged appropriately to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration‘s Block Grants for Community Mental Health Services (SAMHSA CMHS). 2006-07
Mental Health established a workgroup in March 2010 to establish a written policy, as well as policies and procedures, to ensure that only allowable costs are used to meet the earmarking requirement. Mental Health had anticipated that this finding would be fully addressed by September 2010. However, due to extensive discussions and issues raised, Mental Health will revise its implementation date to December 2010. 47
