Cost of service is based on the projected 2009-10 spending as contained in the core mission data which OPWDD provided DOB and which DOB published in October of 2008 .
Http://publications.budget.state.ny.us/budgetfp/coremissionbudgeting/coremissionbudgeting08.html divided by the number of individuals served in each service category by either the
state or voluntary not for profit agencies as contained in the same document. Because the state operations spending totals contained in the core mission documents did not include
general state charges – i.e., pension and health care costs of OPWDD staff providing services to individuals with developmental disabilities, a significant omission which seriously
under reports state spending vis a vi voluntary agency spending, DDAWNY has added this data based on actual OPWDD SFY 2009-10 general state charges spending as contained
in DOB’s November 2010 mid- year update, page t-223, cash disbursement by function, all funds, general state charges spending, OPWDD ($670,795,000).
Http://publications.budget.state.ny.us/budgetfp/1011midyear/2010-11_midyearupdate.pdf . DDAWNY has allocated these GSC by the percentage of state operation spending for the
various service categories as stated in the October 2008 core mission document.
