Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the execution of Amendment No. 2013.01 in relation to the Title IV-E County Child Welfare Services Contract Number 23940956 and the Title IV-E County Legal Services Contract Number 23940957.
BACKGROUND
On September 28, 2011, the Commissioners Court ratified the execution of the Title IV-E County Child Welfare Services Contract and the Title IV-E County Legal Services Contract. The contracts were entered into by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) and Nueces County. These contracts allow Nueces County to receive reimbursement for expenditures which benefit children meeting certain federal standards such as poverty level and other at-risk criteria. The county's reimbursement varies, depending on the expenditure level and number of eligible children cared for by our local state agency.

The contract became effective on October 1, 2011 and was effective through September 30, 2012. The contract automatically renews for one fiscal year at a time through September 30, 2018 unless terminated sooner.
DISCUSSION
The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) recently modified the contract documents in order to comply with changes to federal and state laws and to correct a clerical error on their part. The County’s current contract stipulates that the contract may only be modified bilaterally through a written amendment mutually agreed upon and signed by both parties.

DFPS has prepared Amendment #2013.01 for both the Child Welfare Services and the Legal Services contracts.

The amendments do not affect the budget. Revenue from the Child Welfare contract is reported in the Child Protective Services Department 4130 and the Legal Services contract is reported in the County Attorney Department 1130.
