The CDJFS shall submit a Title XX SSBG quarterly report even if SSBG direct services were not provided or purchased service expenditures were not made during the quarter.

Non-compliance with ODJFS reporting requirements may result in a delay of a county's draw request.

(1) The number of individuals who received services in whole or in part with social services funds showing separately the number of children and the number of adults who received such services;

(2) The total amount of social services funding spent in providing each service. The CDJFS shall report expenditure amounts for services provided by purchased services or agreements and by CDJFS staff as reported in the county finance and information system (CFIS) for the corresponding time period;

(a) The CDJFS shall report information for services provided through purchased service contracts or agreements in the quarter in which the CDJFS determine the services were paid.

(b) The CDJFS shall report information for services provided by the CDJFS staff in the quarter that the services were provided; and

(3) Whether the services were provided by public agencies, private agencies, or both.

(a) "Public service" is defined as a service provided by any state, or local government; any department, agency special purpose district, workforce investment board, or other instrumentality of a state or local government.

(b) "Private service" is defined as a service provided through a written contract between the local CDJFS and private non-profit agencies, private proprietary agencies, or individual contractors.
