Welfare & Institutions Code, Section 4519.5, requires the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and regional centers to annually collaborate to compile data relating to purchase of service authorization, utilization, and expenditure by each regional center with respect to:

  • The age of consumer, categorized by the following:
    • Birth to age two, inclusive,
    • Three to 21, inclusive,
    • Twenty–two and older.
  • Race or ethnicity of the consumer.
  • Primary language spoken by the consumer, and other related details, as feasible.
  • Disability detail.

The data must also include the number and percentage of individuals, categorized by age, race or ethnicity, and disability, who have been determined to be eligible for regional center services but are not receiving purchase of service funds.

By March 31, 2013, each regional center must post their data on their website.  Beginning on December 31, 2013, each regional center must annually post this data by December 31.  By March 31, 2013, DDS must post statewide data on its website, and beginning on December 31, 2013, it must be posted by December 31.

Within three months of compiling the data with DDS, and annually thereafter, each regional center must meet with stakeholders in a public meeting regarding the data.
