DCA Pro Rata Study
Senate Bill 1243 (Hill, Chapter 395, Statutes of 2014) required the Department of Consumer Affairs (Department) to provide a one-time study of its process for distributing administrative costs (pro rata) among its boards, bureaus, committees, commission and program (boards). The purpose of the study was to:
- Determine if the current methodology is the most productive and cost efficient manner for the Department and the boards;
- Consider whether some services provided by the Department should be outsourced or charged based on usage; and,
- Consider whether boards should be allowed to opt out of paying and receiving certain administrative services.
In December 2014, the Department contracted with CPS HR Consulting (CPS) to conduct a study in accordance with SB 1243.
