Slide 2

Purpose The workshop’s design is to present a straightforward, steady, and target cost assignment strategy to: Help States and Tribes focus impartial conveyances of programming advancement expenses to Federal, State and Tribal profiting projects over the framework improvement lifecycle. Help facilitate the Federal support process for State and Tribal Cost Allocation Plans.

Slide 3

Audience This Toolkit is intended for the individuals who are normally in charge of expense portion arranging and usage for State and Tribal robotized frameworks supporting Federal, State and Tribal open help program. National office (Federal) money related staff who survey and endorse State Cost Allocation Plans Regional office staff (Federal) who audit State Cost Allocation Plans State and Tribal office monetary and data innovation (IT) staff who assist get ready With costing Allocation Plans taking into account framework improvement needs. Contractual workers who give information to bolster State cost distribution techniques.

Slide 4

Purpose State offices cause framework costs all through the framework lifecycle. These expenses fall into five classes: System arranging Software advancement Hardware Operations Maintenance

Slide 5

Challenges During reality discovering meetings held in 2003, a partner gathering of Federal and State office agents distinguished three sorts of expense assignment difficulties: Lack of expense designation information Need for a characterized expense portion process Specific issues with expense distribution execution, for instance, time allotments for Cost Allocation Plan endorsement and direction for little programs’ cost designation Sporadic/rare requirements for performing expense allotment Loss of expense portion experience because of staff turnover

Slide 6

Opportunities The gathering proposed the accompanying arrangements: Create an expense distribution preparing asset that could be a refresher for experienced State, Tribal and Federal specialists and a groundwork for new staff Define and model an expense assignment process, with computerized instrument backing, to advance reliable and target cost assignment results for profiting projects Encourage cost distribution best practices and the utilization of lessons scholarly among the States and Tribes

Slide 7

Why Cost Allocation Increasingly, as new innovations and new methodologies like big business building design have ended up accessible, States and even Tribes are incorporating their frameworks to regulate a few Federal, State and Tribal projects all the while. Impartial expense sharing is imperative in light of the fact that framework incorporation and modernization expenses are considerable, with programming advancement typically the single biggest cost thing at more than half of aggregate framework costs. Government law obliges value in expense sharing.

Slide 8

Key Concepts Cost assignment is a strategy that State offices utilization to distinguish, measure, and fairly disseminate framework costs among profiting State and Federal open help programs. Profiting project implies a State, Tribal or Federal open help program that uses abilities in a State’s robotized framework to help its faculty perform a system capacity. For instance, the State of Arizona’s AZTECS framework assists case managers with deciding an applicant’s qualification for numerous programs’ administrations, including Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Food Stamps, and Medicaid. In this illustration, TANF, Food Stamps, and Medicaid are all “benefiting programs” of the AZTECS framework and share its expenses.

Slide 9

Cost portion includes distinguishing: Direct expenses (for framework capacities profiting a solitary Federal, State or Tribal project) Shared expenses (for framework capacities profiting two or more Federal, State or Tribal projects) Direct expenses are charged just to the single profiting system. Shared expenses must be designated, or genuinely conveyed, among all the profiting projects.

Slide 10

Terms Cost distribution procedure implies the particular technique, or methodology, the organization uses to focus every profiting program’s segment of the mutual framework costs. There is no “right” cost designation technique. For every framework advancement, partners in the State or Tribal organization and Federal profiting projects cooperate to add to a commonly pleasing expense assignment approach. Utilizing this procedure, they focus the proportionate rate and dollar measure of expense sharing for every profiting system. Fetched assignment strategy for framework arranging is by and large an improved designation in view of “any sensible method.” For instance, when apportioning shared expenses for arranging a State or Tribal framework update, the organization might basically distribute equivalent expense shares to real profiting projects.

Slide 11

Terms Cost assignment philosophy for programming advancement is for the most part a more intricate allotment in light of “Benefit Received” Benefit Received considers the profiting programs’ general and particular utilization of framework capacities, and the level of exertion included to make or alter these framework abilities, balanced for multifaceted nature. NOTE: Benefit Received as utilized as a part of expense assignment system ought not be mistaken for advantages, for example, money help or Food Stamps disseminated to beneficiaries qualified for open help.

Slide 12

Terms Cost Allocation Plan (CAP) is the archive that State organizations submit to Federal profiting projects for approbation amid the Advance Planning Document (APD) procedure to get Federal subsidizing for a segment of State framework costs for framework arranging and programming improvement. The Cost Allocation Plan records the State agency’s cost assignment procedure and demonstrates the proposed Program Share of Cost (%) and Share Amount ($) for every profiting system. Each Federal profiting system must endorse the State agency’s Cost Allocation Plan.

CAP For Systems Planning

Slide 15

CAP for Systems Planning In the APD and award application process, State and Tribal organizations are obliged to present a CAP for endorsement as a component of their Planning APD (PAPD) or gift application when: Total procurement costs (Federal, State or Tribal stores) are foreseen to be $5M or more. (This sum depends on the aggregate expected expense, including expenses both for arranging and consequent advancement.); and The framework will advantage two or more Federal projects. These are the base necessities for a State or Tribal office demand for Federal Financial Participation. The Cost Allocation Plan will likewise need to consider State or Tribal projects if the framework will advantage one or more State or Tribal projects.

Slide 16

CAP for Systems Planning Systems improvement of not exactly $5 million aggregate expense does not oblige submittal of a Cost Allocation Plan to Federal organizations. Be that as it may, as per Federal expense bookkeeping benchmarks, some designation technique must be set up to impartially share costs that advantage two or more offices. See OMB Circular A-87 , “Cost Principles for State, Local, and Indian Tribal Governments.”

Slide 17

CAP for Systems Planning The measure of the evaluated framework arranging spending plan decides the sort of expense portion technique needed for the Planning APD or award application. In the event that the assessed framework arranging spending plan is not exactly $5M, the expense designation technique can be founded on “any sensible method.” If the evaluated framework arranging spending plan is $5M or more, the expense assignment philosophy must be founded on “Benefit Received.” This sort of expense allotment strategy is the same one needed for the Implementation APD.

Slide 18

CAP for Systems Planning Each profiting Federal project sanctions its Share of Cost (%) and Share Amount ($) in view of the proposed expense allotment strategy. Government Financial Participation starts when all Federal profiting projects endorse. At the point when one or more Federal financing offices does not support the procedure, costs can\'t be charged to that Agency. So as to claim costs, the State office must update its submittal to get simultaneousness with its procedure from all taking an interest Federal offices.

Slide 19

CAP for Systems Planning The Cost Allocation Plan (CAP) ought to contain: A story area recognizing the profiting State, Tribal and Federal projects and depicting the expense designation procedure to be utilized to dispense their common framework costs A display (in table organization) demonstrating every State, Tribal and Federal program’s Share of Cost (%) and Share Amount ($) that outcomes from applying the proposed expense assignment technique.

Slide 20

CAP for Planning – An Example The evaluated framework arranging spending plan is $300,000. The three noteworthy profiting Federal projects are Food Stamps, Medicaid, and Child Welfare. No State or Tribal open help projects are incorporated in this expense designation. The State or Tribe’s proposed expense designation strategy is to assign equivalent arranging expense shares to the three noteworthy profiting projects (e.g., a 33.3% offer to every system). Since it depends on information from past framework arranging endeavors, this strategy takes after the “any sensible method” rule for expense distribution for framework arranging.

Slide 21

CAP for Planning – An Example Table 3 outlines this example’s cost allotment show needed as a major aspect of the Planning APD Cost Allocation Plan. The display demonstrates every profiting program’s Share of Cost (%) and Share Amount ($) coming about because of applying the equivalent expense shares cost designation procedure.
