Cost benefit analysis HB 3194 amends SB 267 and asks CJC to work with the Public Safety Task Force to identify a cost benefit tool. CJC uses a cost benefit tool modeled after the Washington State Institute for Public Policy work. Cost benefit analysis is the capacity to assess system costs, determine avoided costs and derive a benefit to taxpayers and victims demonstrated as a ratio. Cost benefit analysis was integral to securing funding from the Oregon Legislature to fund Drug Court programs.

How does my county get the JRI money in 2013? A letter of intent to participate is required form the County. To help with this, the CJC developed a uniform participation letter. We have received 12 to date. Additional information can accompany your letter that identifies planned use of funds – not required, but is appreciated. The funds have been allocated to CJC and will be distributed upon receipt of your letter. CJC estimates it will take 7-10 days to arrive.
How does my County get JRI money next biennium? October 1, 2013 forecast reduction in beds is realized & Legislature appropriates savings to CJC Counties will provide an application for their proportion of the funds in accordance with the baseline formula. After an application is approved by the Grant Review Committee, the CJC Commissioners will award according to the rules established. If there are unallocated funds, a supplemental grant period will be used to distribute unallocated funds.
