Why this now?  Insufficient capacity to manage/monitor the volume of grants, contracts, and services in DHHS  Circular logic for funding and applications (we have always done it this way, so it needs to be done this way)  Lack of outcomes and consistent data collection/analysis  Little to no correlation between program objectives, distribution of funding and subsequent outcomes

4 Contract Initiation  Why are we contracting?  Drivers (Strategic Plan Initiative, Legislation)  What are we contracting?  Service Definition  How do we get started?  Accountability Template
