Analysis of Environmental Health Permit and Service Fees Revised June 30, 2011

Summary The Environmental Health (EH) Division is a regulatory agency responsible for enforcing State and local laws for the protection of public health. The Division regulates a variety of entities including restaurants, retail and wholesale markets, mobile food vehicles, rental housing of 5 units or more, hotels, motels, public swimming pools, theatres, laundries, and landfills. The regulatory work of the Division is funded by permit and service fees assessed on owners and/or operators pursuant to the California Health and Safety Code, and the Los Angeles County Code. These codes authorize the Division to recover the reasonable expenses and, in the case of retail food code enforcement, the actual costs associated with its regulatory work. Fees are reviewed annually and were last revised in 2007. In early 2010 the Department of Public Health (DPH) retained the consulting firm MGT of America, Inc. to conduct a study of the fees charged by the EH Division. The purpose of the study was to examine the services provided by the EH Division and to determine the "true" costs of each of those services. The consultant was asked to recommend changes in the EH Division's fee-setting methodology to ensure that annual fees were better aligned with reasonable expenses and actual costs. Accordingly, the study analyzed each of the regulatory services provided by the Division and found some of the current fees to be higher, and others to be lower, than the "true" costs of providing the services. Although none of these deviations rendered the fees unlawful, as all fees were set to recoup the EH Division's "reasonable expenses" or "actual costs," in accordance with all applicable laws, the fee study revealed that the fees could be better and more precisely calibrated. Additionally, the study identified a number of services for which fees were not currently assessed. As a result, the study recommended that each of the fees be better aligned with the costs determined by the consultant, and that new fee categories be established for those services for which fees were not currently assessed. The EH Division implemented the consultant's recommendations. However, the EH Division determined that several modifications to the fees proposed in the MGT study were required. For example, corrections were required in the estimated number of entities subject to regulation, the estimated workload times, and the hourly labor rates used to determine costs. Also, the EH Division decided to remove from overhead the direct labor costs of several services which could not be associated with fee payers. An ordinance proposing these new fees was first submitted to the Board of Supervisors on April 19, 2011. At that time, the Board of Supervisors continued the item so that DPH and the EH Division staff could meet with impacted parties regarding the proposed changes in annual permit fees. DPH held a total of 16 meetings with associations representing the impacted parties between April 26 and June 16, 2011. In addition, public meetings were held on May 3, May 4, May 31, June 13, June 14, and July 7, 2011. Prior notice of the meetings was provided via e-mail, web

posting, and direct mail. Notice of the June and July meetings was sent to 130,000 existing and 3,000 proposed new fee payers. EH also established an e-mail address and dedicated phone line to receive public comments. As a result of the industry and public input received, the following modifications were made to the proposed ordinance. 1. The component of food facility permit fees related to costs associated with illegal food vending enforcement was reduced from 9.9% to 7%. This reduction was made to ease the burden on permitted food facility operators. The Division is exploring alternative funding sources, as well as program efficiencies, to minimize the impact of this reduction on enforcement efforts. 2. The workload estimates for “temporary food booth inspection,” including those conducted at Certified Farmers’ Markets, were revised downward. The revisions were based on a decrease in estimated travel and inspection times. This resulted in a corresponding reduction in the proposed fees for the majority of categories. 3. The workload estimates for “swimming pool inspections” have been revised. The first revision was the reduction of travel time for multiple pools at the same location. In addition, swimming pools were classified into 3 "risk" tiers -- “low,” “moderate” and “high risk.” These revisions resulted in a decrease in fees for approximately 10,000 multifamily residential pool sites. However, an increase in fees resulted for approximately 1,300 health clubs, hotels, schools and theme parks, which operate pools classified as “moderate” and “high risk.” 4. The fee for food vending machines was frozen at $62, rather than the previously proposed fee of $275. This change was made in consultation with the vending machine industry to allow for development, during the next Fiscal Year, of a more effective approach to regulating this industry. 5. The definition of the “fee exempt charitable activity” was expanded to include non-profit entities that provide permanent housing with free supportive services for the homeless. DPH also made several other revisions in the workload estimates. These revisions resulted in fee reductions in plan check services for retail food facilities, and inspections of garment manufacturers, wiping rag establishments, commercial laundries, and solid waste facilities which handle construction and demolition debris. In addition, the revisions resulted in fee increases in plan check services for swimming pools undergoing “moderate” or “major renovations” and recycled water projects. DPH will continue discussions with the regulated industries during the coming Fiscal Year to address other identified issues related to public health fees, policies, and service quality. These include an incentive program that would reduce inspection frequencies, and associated fees, based on a permittee's good compliance history. The following Summary Sheets include a complete list of the proposed fees. They have been modified to reflect the changes indicated above and have been approved by the County's Auditor-Controller. In addition, the MGT report, “FY10 Department of Public Health Environmental Health, Fee Development Special Study, Report of Findings, August, 2010,” is included as Attachment I.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Introduction
MGT of America (MGT) is pleased to present the County of Los Angeles (County) with this summary of findings for the Department of Public Health Environmental Health Fee Development Special Study. In January 2010, the County issued a Request for Proposal for consulting services to perform a comprehensive study of the services provided by the Department of Public Health’s Environmental Health Division. The primary goals of the study were to: 1) determine the actual cost of the services provided by the agency, 2) develop appropriate cost reimbursement rates and methodologies, including any recommendations for changes in methodologies, and 3) identify potential new fee opportunities for existing services for which fees are not currently assessed. MGT’s proposal was presented in March, and the project’s entrance conference was held on April 7th, 2010. This report is the culmination of the past five months of work between MGT and county management and staff. MGT would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge all management and staff who participated on this project for their efforts and coordination. Their responsiveness and continued interest in the outcome of this study contributed greatly to the success of this study.

Study Scope and Objectives
The study was performed under the general direction of the Department of Public Health with the participation of management and staff within the Environmental Health Division (EH). The scope of the study included the following activities: Review current county codes, all applicable federal, state and county laws and regulations, and relevant EH policies, procedures, and guidelines for permitted and/or licenses services related to food, housing, water, liquid and solid waste, land use and vector control. Assess the strengths and weaknesses of the methodologies used by the Department to establish the existing EH fees, and provide a written summary of this assessment. Survey other jurisdictions, particularly California counties and large metropolitan areas, to identify fees associated with identical or substantially similar services currently provided.

1 of 36

Conduct an in-depth analysis of the costs, strength and weaknesses of the varying methodologies, and other jurisdictions findings in order to prepare the following: Fees for each service and sub-service category included in the existing EH fee schedule. Fees for services and sub-services currently being provided without an associated fee. Method to determine sub-service fee adjustments based on the level of difficulty/complexity within a category. Method to annually adjust established rates based on various cost factors (such as cost-of-living adjustments, or changes in regulations, requirements, personnel, technology, or industry practices, etc.) Summary of identified barriers, including financial disincentives, to service delivery and any corresponding recommended changes to legislation or regulation, as appropriate. The objectives of the study included the following outcomes: Conduct a comprehensive study to determine the actual cost of providing various services associated with fees currently charged by Environmental Health. The fees are related to environmental health services, licenses and permits related to food safety, housing, water, liquid and solid waste, land use, vector management, and other activities performed by EH. Based on the aforementioned analysis, develop appropriate cost reimbursement rates for providing the services, licenses and permits. Develop appropriate cost reimbursement rates and methodologies for establishing fees not currently assessed for services currently being provided in accordance with California Health and Safety Code Section 101325 and the categories of services, licenses, and permits recognized in the County Code, Title 8 and 20. Discuss the resulting recommendations and methodologies used to develop the fees with the Department's EH management and develop a presentation for use in explaining the results of this study to various stakeholders, including Public Health management, Board of Supervisors and their staff, service recipients, etc. The information summarized in this report addresses each of these issues and provides the County with the tools necessary to make informed decisions about any proposed fee adjustments and the resulting impact on county revenues.

Economic & Policy Considerations for Implementation and Annual Adjustment of Fees
Calculating the true cost of providing environmental health services is a critical step in the process of establishing user fees and corresponding cost recovery levels. Although it is an important factor, other factors must also be given consideration. County decisionmakers must also consider the effects that establishing fees for services will have on the individuals purchasing those services, as well as the community as a whole. The following economic and policy issues help illustrate these considerations. No fee should be set higher than 100% cost recovery, without disclosure about the reasons why (e.g. a fine or penalty element, or the acknowledgement of one activity subsidizing another). If the proposed fee increase is significant, many agencies will opt to phase in the increase over a period of three to five years. Comprehensive reviews should be undertaken every three to five years, with minor cost of living adjustments made on an annual basis. Note: MGT recommends making annual adjustments utilizing the structure and results of this comprehensive study. Elasticity of demand is a factor in pricing certain city services; increasing the price of some services results in a reduction of demand for those services, and vice versa.

USER FEE COST ANALYSIS
Study Findings
While the purpose of this study is to identify the cost of fee-related activities, one of the outcomes of the analysis is to provide a complete picture of the full cost of all services offered. It is necessary to identify all costs, whether fee-related or not, so that there is a fair distribution of all countywide and departmental overhead costs (discussed in a subsequent section of this report) across all activities, thereby ensuring a definitive relationship between the cost of the service and the fee that is charged. No service should be burdened with costs that cannot be directly or indirectly linked to that service. Therefore, the first task in this study is to separate the fee-for-service activities from the non-fee activities. The study's primary objective is to provide the County’s decision-makers with basic data needed for setting fees. This report details the full cost of services, and presents proposed fees and projected revenues based on recommended user fee cost recovery levels. Recommendations were based upon careful consideration of the results of the cost analysis, historical cost recovery levels, and market comparisons. The exhibits that follow display the costs and revenues of each department/division into the following categories:

3 of 36

Exhibit I Total Costs – Displays the total costs of Environmental Health. Costs, User Fee Costs – Of the $91 million in total costs analyzed, $88 million (or 97%) of that total is related to user fee services. It is this $88 million that is the focus of this study and represents the total potential for user fee-related revenues for the County. Costs, Other Services – These costs reflect services that cannot be recovered through fees. Programs such as Emergency Preparedness and Toxic Epidemiology are examples of services not considered fee related.

Exhibit II (following page) This exhibit further analyzes the $88 million in user fee services from Exhibit I. Revenues Based on Current Fee Assessment – Based on current individual fee levels, the County generates fee related revenues of $72 million and is experiencing an 82% cost recovery level. However, the rate of recovery varies greatly among individual services. The analysis of individual fees may be found in a subsequent section of this report. Adjustment Needed for 100% Recovery – It is estimated that adoption of the recommended cost recovery policy would increase fee revenue by approximately 22%.

Analysis Highlights
Restaurant Inspections - Significant changes to the structure of the restaurant fee schedules have been recommended. Currently, restaurant fees are charged on a sliding scale based on the number of seats. Staff has recommended that the fee structure incorporate the level of risk associated with each establishment. Environmental Health Staff believes the new structure will better reflect the level of service being received by the customer. The level of risk is defined as follows: High Risk Food Facilities: This category includes, but is not limited to, full service restaurants that meet any of the following criteria: Offer an extensive menu with the handling of raw ingredients, Prepare potentially hazardous food (PHF) in advance using a food preparation method that involves two or more steps which may include: combining potentially hazardous ingredients, cooking, cooling, reheating, hot or cold holding, freezing, or thawing, Prepare foods for multi-day use (e.g. roasts, soups, sauces, potato salad, and foods which are frequently used to create a second-day dish or used over several days), Serve raw products such as sushi or oysters, Prepare large volumes of food, Process meat or seafood by smoking, curing, or drying, Use reduced oxygen packaging methods, Use multi-use eating and drinking utensils.

5 of 36

Moderate Risk Food Facilities: This category includes retail food stores with open foods, schools not serving a highly susceptible population, and quick service operations, which: Prepare or serve PHF in quantities based on projected same day consumer demand and discards food that is not sold or served the same day, Offer a limited menu variety, Use single service eating and drinking utensils.

Low Risk Food Facilities: This category includes liquor stores, retail food warehouses, prepackaged food warehouses, drug store type ice cream operations, candy only operations, bars without a kitchen, theater snack bars, etc., that: Primarily offer prepackaged food items, either PHF or non-PHF, Prepare only non-potentially hazardous foods (e.g., popcorn), Food facilities that heat only commercially processed potentially hazardous foods. No cooling of PHF is allowed. Use single-use drinking utensils (bars may use multi-use drinking utensils).

Retail Food Market Inspections – Similar to restaurant inspections, Environmental Health staff has recommended a revised fee structure that is based on the risk associated with each establishment. Environmental Health staff believes the new structure will better reflect the level of service being received by the customer. Restaurant and Food Warehouse Plan Check – Environmental Health staff has recommended the fee structures for restaurant and food warehouse plan checks be broken out into a tiered approach based on square footage. The new structure will better reflect the level of service received by the customer.

Methodology
A cost of service study analyzes two components of costs: the direct costs associated with providing each fee-for-service activity, and the indirect costs that support these activities. A brief discussion of each of these components follows.

Direct Costs The direct costs associated with fee-for-service activities were analyzed in great detail in this study. MGT worked with program managers to develop the analysis that is summarized in this report. Fiscal year 2009-2010 adopted budget was used to identify direct costs.

6 of 36

The first step in the process was to identify staff time spent directly on each of the user fee activities. Each staff person involved in the user fee services identified time spent to complete each task associated with all user fee services. Annual volume statistics were also gathered in order to develop total annual workload information. Salary and benefit dollars were assigned to the time estimates to come up with the direct staff costs. Indirect Costs A proportionate share of other operating expenses and internal department administrative costs were layered onto the direct costs as a departmental overhead. Countywide overhead costs coming from the County cost allocation plan were also added in as indirect overhead. The three components of the indirect costs are: 1) division overhead, 2) departmental overhead, and 3) countywide overhead. The cost of each activity is then compared to the fee currently charged, and the extent of the cost recovery is identified. Division overhead includes activities such as Environmental Health administration and bureau/program/element specific time that cannot be directly assigned to a particular fee service, but is required to perform the individual fee services.

ANALYSIS OF CURRENT METHODOLOGY
The County currently calculates environmental health fees using a “total-program” methodology. This method of fee calculation is often called a “top-down” method. The first step in the analysis is to determine the annual cost of the fee program. This total program cost is then divided by the number of businesses in the program to arrive at the resultant fee. An example of this calculation is presented below for the backflow prevention assembly fee. In this case, the annual cost of the program was identified to be $870,887. Divided by the number of backflow devices inspected (48,000) provides a fee calculation of $18.143. The fee was rounded to $18.

The total program methodology is well known in the cost accounting industry and is often used to calculate parks and recreation fees where a per-participant time factor is impractical to determine. One argument in favor of a total program methodology is that it is very good at predicting annual revenue, thereby allowing an agency to accurately offset the cost of a program. The downside of this methodology is that it can perpetuate inappropriate staffing levels. For example, in our example, if the number of backflow devices were reduced by half to 24,000, the resultant fee would simply increase to $36. This is of course an extreme example, but it serves to highlight the potential dangers of this fee calculation methodology. A more conventional (and industry standard) fee calculation method is the per-unit methodology. Also called the bottom-up method, fees are calculated by determining the staff time required to perform one unit of service or inspection. This time requirement is then multiplied against fully burdened staff rates to determine the appropriate fee. A benefit of this methodology is that the fee calculation is not affected by increases or decreases in demand. Instead, as demand increases or decreases over a period of time, a per-unit methodology will highlight the need for additional or fewer staff. Another benefit of a per-unit methodology is that it can provide a detailed record of the steps involved with service provision. The City of Long Beach provided us with an example of their per-unit fee calculation spreadsheet (see below). This spreadsheet documents the individual tasks that must be performed to inspect a backflow device, and breaks this time down by staff category. MGT recommends that Los Angeles County employ a per-unit methodology for use in its Environmental Health fee calculations, and has developed the proposed fees in this report based on this methodology.

SURVEY OF FEE SETTING PRACTICES
Background/Objective
The objective of this questionnaire-based survey was to present county staff with an outline of five like jurisdictions’ methods of calculating costs, and identifies their best practices for charging for environmental health services. The County and MGT selected the survey participants based on size, proximity, and similarity of services provided. The objective for this survey is to identify best practices that can be incorporated into the County’s environmental health fees.

Methodology
MGT met with key county staff to determine what data elements would be important to gather from the survey, and based on this meeting, a questionnaire was jointly created by MGT and county staff. Given the short project time frame, county staff contacted key individuals from the survey agencies to ask for their participation in this study. MGT then contacted all survey agencies, e-mailing them the written survey, as well as conducting on-site interviews when possible.

Jurisdiction List
MGT and county staff came up with the following list of five survey jurisdictions to include in the comparison: County of Orange, California County of San Diego, California County of Alameda, California County of Sacramento, California City of Long Beach, California Below is a summary of the responses to our questionnaire:

19 of 36

Fee Basis & Cost Determination Most of the jurisdictions, four out of five, indicated a per-unit analysis is primarily used to calculate fees. Under a per-unit methodology, the required time for one unit of service is examined, with the resultant fee based on this time. One jurisdiction, Orange County, also uses a total program fee calculation methodology for certain programs. A total program fee methodology begins with the total cost of a program and divides by the number of program participants. San Diego uses a hybrid of the per-unit and total program methodology. Per-unit analysis determines appropriate staffing levels, which translates into total program cost. A total program fee calculation then determines the actual fee amount. Two of the jurisdictions, the City of Long Beach and Alameda County, use a benchmark survey to ensure that their fees are neither significantly higher nor lower than other jurisdictions. The process of arriving at full cost was uniform among jurisdictions with departments incorporating all direct and indirect costs. Indirect costs include administrative functions within the department as well as countywide indirect costs from a cost allocation plan. Addressing Complexity In most jurisdictions complexity is only addressed through size of a particular facility. Orange County looks at facility size as the main way of determining the associated fee. Sacramento addresses complexity more directly by assigning a higher frequency of inspection, and therefore more staff time, to categories of facilities considered to be a higher health risk. Long Beach makes a distinction between packaged and unpackaged food to assess risk. Packaged food poses less of a risk and receives a lower fee. Cost Review The survey found that agencies review costs frequently, ranging from a quarterly to an annual basis. None of our survey agencies review less than annually. Long Beach reviews their fee schedule quarterly. However, it is not a global review and adjustments are usually limited to new fees. Annually they adjust all fees based on a CPI factor. Sacramento adopted a five-year fee adjustment policy whereby fees are increased annually based on salary increases and cost of living adjustments. Orange County prepares a per-unit fee study annually. Estimated per-unit time factors are evaluated every other year. Subsidy Survey participants were asked if they knowingly charge less than actual cost for fee-related services. All participants responded that their fees are designed to recover 100% of full cost, with Orange County noting that a possible exception may be where a fee is restricted by State law.

20 of 36

Exempt Status Survey participants were asked if certain groups are exempt from paying fees and if so, what qualifies them as exempt. Sacramento County provides veterans with exemptions. Alameda County exempts government agencies, including schools. They also exempt nonprofit charitable organizations. San Diego exempts veterans, farm employee housing, farm employee labor camps and firestorm victims. The City of Long Beach provides exempt status on a case by case basis via an appeals process to their Health Officer. Competition Survey participants were asked if there is competition for environmental health services. All participants responded that there is no competition. Hindrance to Compliance Survey participants were asked if they are aware of any areas where imposition of a full cost fee might hinder or reduce compliance. Most survey participants believe that full cost fees generally do not result in businesses seeking to circumvent inspection and/or compliance. The only possible exception provided was for back-flow devices. Los Angeles County staff also believe back-flow device inspection is an area where high fees could possibly reduce compliance.

LEGAL CODE RESEARCH FINDINGS
MGT researched the California Health and Safety Codes and Los Angeles County Codes to identify fee setting rules pertaining to Environmental Health services. In terms of fee calculation guidance HS 101325 simply states that fees should approximate the “reasonable expenses” of the cost of enforcement. This is consistent with the State of California’s umbrella guidance regarding fee calculation found in Government Code 66014 which states that government service fees “may not exceed the estimated reasonable cost of providing the service for which the fee is charged”. In practice, the courts have interpreted these guidelines to mean that fees are valid and defensible if the governmental agency exercised due diligence in setting the fees based on a best estimate of average cost. In MGT’s experience with other jurisdictions and legal cases involving user fees, best practices include both 1) periodic evaluation of fee-service costs and 2) monitoring of fund balances to ensure that excessive surplus revenues are not generated. If excessive surplus revenues are discovered, fees should be reduced. Several of the California Health and Safety Codes and Los Angeles California Codes provide specific fee-charging requirements for particular situations. These codes have been included below. Excerpts with fee setting relevance are in bold type.

California Health and Safety Codes
HS 101325. Whenever the governing body of any city or county determines that the expenses of the local health officer or other officers or employees in the enforcement of any statute, order, quarantine, or regulation prescribed by a state officer or department relating to public health, requires or authorizes its health officer or other officers or employees to perform specified acts that are not met by fees prescribed by the state, the governing body may adopt an ordinance or resolution prescribing fees to pay the reasonable expenses of the health officer or other officers or employees incurred in the enforcement, and may authorize a direct assessment against the real property in cases where the real property is owned by the operator of a business and the property is the subject of the enforcement. The schedule of fees prescribed by ordinance or resolution of the governing body shall be applicable in the area in which the local health officer or other officers or employees enforce any statute, order, quarantine, or regulation prescribed by a state officer or department relating to public health. HS 101330. On or before August of each year, the officer designated by the governing body to collect fees authorized by Section 101325, shall prepare a list of parcels of real property that are subject to these fees. On or before the tenth day of August of each year, the officer shall transmit the list to the county auditor and the auditor shall enter the amounts of the assessments against the respective parcels of land as they appear on the current assessment roll.

22 of 36

HS 101335. The tax collector shall include the amounts of the assessments entered on the assessment roll pursuant to Section 101330 on bills for taxes levied against lots and parcels of land, and the assessments shall be listed separately on the tax bills. Thereafter, the assessment amounts shall be collected at the same time and in the same manner as county taxes are collected. If a county collects the assessments on behalf of a city, the county may deduct its reasonable costs incurred for its collections services before remitting the balance to the city treasury. HS 101340. All laws applicable to the levy, collection, and enforcement of county taxes are applicable to special assessments made pursuant to this article and Article 4. HS 101345. In those instances where direct assessment is not authorized by Section 101325, if the officer charged with the billing and collection of the fees is a county officer, the officer may, with the approval of the governing body, record without fee, in the office of the county recorder, a certificate specifying the amount, interest, penalty due, and the name and last known address of the person liable for these fees. If the officer charged with the billing and collection of these fees is a city officer, the officer, with the approval of the governing body may, in those instances where direct assessment is not authorized by Section 101325, record with reasonable fee charge, in the office of the county recorder a certificate specifying the amount, interest, penalty due, name, and last known address of the person liable for these fees. From the time of recording of the certificate, the amount required to be paid together with interest and penalty constitutes a lien upon all real property in the county owned or later acquired by the liable person. The lien created by recording this certificate shall have the force, effect, and priority of a judgment lien and shall continue for 10 years from the time of the recording unless released or otherwise discharged prior to that time. Prior to recording the lien with the county recorder, the lienor shall notify the person liable for the fees by certified mail of the intent to record the certificate. HS 114381. (a) A food facility shall not be open for business without a valid permit. (b) A permit shall be issued by the enforcement agency when investigation has determined that the proposed facility and its method of operation meets the specifications of the approved plans or conforms to the requirements of this part. (c) A permit, once issued, is nontransferable. A permit shall be valid only for the person, location, type of food sales, or distribution activity and, unless suspended or revoked for cause, for the time period indicated. (d) Any fee for the permit or registration or related services, including, but not limited to, the expenses of inspecting and impounding any utensil suspected of releasing lead or cadmium in violation of Section 108860 as authorized by Section 114393, review of HACCP plans, and alternative means of compliance shall be determined by the local governing body. Fees shall be sufficient to cover the actual expenses of administering and enforcing this part. The moneys collected as fees shall only be expended for the purpose of administering and enforcing this part. (e) A permit shall be posted in a conspicuous place in the food facility or in the office of a vending machine business. (f) Any person requesting the enforcement agency to undertake activity pursuant to Sections 114149.1 and 114419.3 shall pay the enforcement agency's costs occurred in undertaking the activity. The enforcement agency's services shall be assessed at the current hourly cost recovery rate.

HS 114387. Any person who operates a food facility shall obtain all necessary permits to conduct business, including, but not limited to, a permit issued by the enforcement agency. In addition to the penalties under Article 2 (commencing with Section 114390), violators who operate without the necessary permits shall be subject to closure of the food facility and a penalty not to exceed three times the cost of the permit. HS 116800. Local health officers may maintain programs for the control of cross-connections by water users, within the users' premises, where public exposure to drinking water contaminated by backflow may occur. The programs may include inspections within water users premises for the purpose of identifying cross-connection hazards and determining appropriate backflow protection. Water users shall comply with all orders, instructions, regulations, and notices from the local health officer with respect to the installation, testing, and maintenance of backflow prevention devices. The local health officer may collect fees from those water users subject to inspection to offset the costs of implementing cross-connection control programs. HS 116805. (a) Local health officers may maintain programs, in cooperation with water suppliers, to protect against backflow through service connections into the public water supply, and, with the consent of the water supplier, may collect fees from the water supplier to offset the costs of implementing these programs. (b) The fees authorized under this section and under Section 116800 shall be limited to the costs of administering these programs. At the discretion of the water supplier, the fees collected from the water supplier by the local health officer may be passed through to water users. (c) Programs authorized under this section and Section 116800 shall be conducted in accordance with backflow protection regulations adopted by the department. (d) Nothing in this article shall prevent a water supplier from directly charging those water users required to install backflow prevention devices for the costs of the programs authorized in this section and Section 116800. HS 116810. To assure that testing and maintenance of backflow prevention devices are performed by persons qualified to do testing and maintenance, local health officers may maintain programs for certification of backflow prevention device testers. The local health officer may suspend, revoke, or refuse to renew the certificate of a tester, if, after a hearing before the local health officer or his or her designee, the local health officer or his or her designee finds that the tester has practiced fraud or deception or has displayed gross negligence or misconduct in the performance of his or her duties as a certified backflow prevention device tester. The local health officer may collect fees from certified testers to offset the cost of the certification program provided pursuant to this section. The certification standards shall be consistent with the backflow protection regulations adopted by the department.

BENCHMARK SURVEY – ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH FEES
The following matrix compares Los Angeles County environmental health fees to those of comparable jurisdictions. Jurisdictions included in the benchmark survey include: County of Orange, California County of San Diego, California County of Alameda, California County of Sacramento, California City of Long Beach, California This survey identifies the fee charged by each jurisdiction only. The actual cost that each jurisdiction incurs to provide these fee-related services is unknown by MGT. Accordingly, these surveys are often referred to as “market rate” comparisons. Potential New Fees A byproduct of the benchmark survey is the identification of potential new fees that the County can institute. Any fee charged by a survey participant that is not covered by the County’s fee schedule becomes a potential new fee. These potential new fees are listed at the bottom of the first page of the benchmark survey.

COST ALLOCATION PLAN
Objective
The cost allocation plan for Public Health’s Division of Environmental Health was developed to identify the total program costs of providing services to the citizens of LA County. Cost allocation plans are accounting documents that distribute central service costs to all users of the respective services. There are three primary overhead levels: countywide, department-wide (Public Health), and division-wide (Environmental Health). As with most organizations, whether private or public, the costs of providing services can be classified into two categories: direct or indirect. Direct costs are those which can be specifically identified with a particular service, such as plan check, recreational health and radiation management. Indirect costs are not readily identifiable with a particular operating program, but rather are incurred for a joint purpose which benefits more than one cost objective. Common examples are accounting, purchasing and personnel. Although these costs are not readily identifiable with direct operating programs, they are nevertheless incurred by that organization in providing a service or product. As such, it is essential that some method be developed to distribute indirect costs to operating programs if the total cost of a program is to be determined. The Environmental Health's cost allocation plan has been prepared in accordance with federal guidelines as delineated in Office of Management and Budget Circular A-87 for the development of cost allocation plans. This circular was prepared by the federal government to establish allocation principles and standards applicable to grants and contracts with state and local governments. The guidelines were designed to ensure that a uniform approach is used in the preparation of cost allocation plans.

Determination of Direct and Indirect Costs
The first step in the preparation of the cost allocation plan is the determination of direct and indirect costs. The cost of departments or programs which primarily provide services to the County’s constituents are identified as direct costs; the cost of departments or programs which primarily provide services to the organization itself are identified as indirect costs. Indirect costs are often referred to as overhead, central service costs, support costs, or administrative costs. The cost allocation plan defines indirect costs as they support direct costs, or operating programs.

Uses of the Cost Allocation Plan
Through the identification of total program costs, the cost allocation plan can be utilized as a basic information tool in a number of financial and budgetary decision-making situations, including the following:

30 of 36

The cost allocation plan can be used to determine costs applicable to federal and state grant programs. Under the provisions of circular A-87, it is permissible to include indirect costs in accounting for many federal and state grant programs. By establishing an indirect cost rate, the cost allocation plan can be utilized to recover the indirect costs associated with administering federal grant programs. The cost allocation plan can also be used in establishing service fees designed for cost recovery by ensuring that all of the costs -direct and indirect -- associated with providing services are included in the cost analysis. The cost allocation plan provides for the identification and recapture of all indirect costs associated with fee for service activity.

Summary
The cost allocation plan establishes a fair and equitable methodology for identifying and allocating indirect costs to direct cost programs. As such, the cost allocation plan can be a valuable tool in a number of financial applications, including the allocation of organizational resources, performance of expense analyses, establishment of fees designed to recover total costs, recovery of indirect costs in the administration of grant programs and reimbursement of costs associated with providing support services.

Cost Plan Structure
The cost plan is structured around the list of central service (allocating) divisions. Each central service division is given a number and a “chapter” within the cost plan. Referring to the LA County Environmental Health cost plan, there are 19 central service (allocating) divisions defined and thus 19 chapters. The cost plan summary schedule immediately follows. The Summary Schedule shows the total allocations from the central services divisions to each of the operating programs in Environmental Health. It is organized by central service divisions (left hand margin) and by operating divisions (top row.) The table of contents and summary schedule has been included on the subsequent pages.
