As part of its forthcoming request for proposals for Group Home, Shelter, and 1 on 1 Supervision services, the Arizona Department of Child Safety is in the process of studying the reimbursement structures and rates for these services. Burns & Associates, Inc. (B&A) is providing assistance in this initiative.

This website will be used to share information regarding the project.

B&A is conducting a provider survey as part of this project in order to gather data regarding service design and costs. Information collected through the survey will be a significant factor as DCS considers potential changes to current rates. All providers are therefore strongly encouraged to complete and return a survey.

The Excel-based survey form can be found here and accompanying instructions are here.

B&A conducted and recorded a webinar to explain the survey on March 22.
• Part 1 – an overview of the survey and its purpose – can be viewed or downloaded here.
• Part 2 – a page-by-page walk-through of the survey – can be viewed or downloaded here.
• Answers to questions asked during the webinar can be found here.
