Background/Explanation:

The agreement with DOH for operation of DOH Pinellas outlines the required coordination between the County and DOH for public health services pursuant to Chapter 154, Florida statute.  The Board of County Commissioners (Board) approved the fiscal year 2019 (FY19) DOH Operations contract for county funding the amount of $6,474,500.00 on October 9, 2018 with a term from October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019.  Because the State of Florida periodically makes funding adjustments reflecting changes in State or Federal support, as well as other administrative changes to the contract the Board delegated the authority to execute administrative amendments to the County Administrator.

Contingent upon the failure of proposed Amendments 1 and 2 in November 2018, the Board approved additional funding to increase social services throughout the County.  These include $100,000.00 additional to support the Home Delivered Meals program for seniors and $215,000.00 to relaunch the STARS program in North Pinellas County.  Funding for the initiatives were derived from additional FY18 lapse generated from the School Health Nurses program within the Health Department Fund.

 

Fiscal Impact:

Additional funding in an amount not to exceed of $315,000.00 has been identified in the Health Department FY19 Special Revenue Fund appropriation via Board Budget Amendment 19-01 approved on December 11, 2018.  The original Agreement is an amount not to exceed $6,474,500.00, and this amendment increases the total “not to exceed” amount to $6,789,500.00.  This funding is generated by a dedicated, countywide Health Department millage.

 

Delegated Authority:

Authority for the County Administrator to sign this First Amendment is granted by Board approval in Legistar Item 18-1287A.
