 1  this strategy is to enhance the coordination of substance

 2  abuse services with community-based care agencies and the

 3  department. The department shall work with affected

 4  stakeholders to develop and implement a plan that allows the

 5  phase-in of services beginning with the delivery of substance

 6  abuse services, with phase-in of subsequent substance abuse

 7  services agreed upon by the managing entity and authorized by

 8  the department, providing the necessary technical assistance

 9  to assure provider and district readiness for implementation.

10  When a single managing entity is established and meets

11  readiness requirements, The department may enter into a

12  noncompetitive contract with the entity. The department shall

13  maintain detailed information on the methodology used for

14  selection and a justification for the selection. Performance

15  objectives shall be developed which ensure that services that

16  are delivered directly affect and complement the child's

17  permanency plan. During the initial planning and

18  implementation phase of this expansion project, the

19  requirements in subsections (6) and (7) are waived.

20  Considering the critical substance abuse problems experienced

21  by many families in the child protection system, the

22  department shall initiate the implementation of the substance

23  abuse delivery component of this program without delay and

24  furnish status reports to the appropriate substantive

25  committees of the Senate and the House of Representatives no

26  later than February 29, 2004, and February 28, 2005, and

27  February 27, 2006. The integration of all services agreed upon

28  by the managing entity and authorized by the department must

29  be completed within 2 years after initiation of the expansion

30  project initiation. Ongoing monitoring and evaluation of this

31  strategy shall be conducted in accordance with subsection (9).
