Out of Home Care: SERVICE MODEL FINANCIAL COMPONENTS Information Session 13 February 2019 (including pricing revision as at 3 April 2019 Why Reform OOHC System? The 2016 Building a Better Future report details the objectives of the out-of-home care (OOHC) reform and key activities to achieve the reform. The Reforms are a suite of initiatives aligned to deliver against each defined objective: a system focused on the needs of the child; a coordinated and flexible service system; a safe system held to high quality standards; and a legislative framework supporting best child outcomes. Through the OOHC reforms there will be greater accountability for the money associated with service provision of OOHC services delivered by community sector organisations (CSOs). Greater stability for CSOs. 02/17/2020 Department of Communities 2 Purpose of Today Give an overview of the minimum number of care arrangements that will be procured in each region. Provide an overview of the prices of the OOHC service that will be procured from CSOs.

Provide information on the Care Arrangement Support Costs (CASC) model and the associated prices. Detail the next steps. Department of Communities 3 Key Information to Note The Department is committed to maintaining the current budget allocated to children in CSO care arrangements. The work undertaken to develop the pricing has been completed over a number of years. Pricing at year 1 aligns to the West Australian (WA) Award rates. We are only indicating the minimum number of care arrangements in each region in this presentation. This allows flexibility to increase provision in areas required when contracts are awarded based on the current numbers of children in CSO care arrangements at that point in time. This aligns with our commitment to minimise any potential impact on children in a CSO care arrangements as a result of the procurement process. CASC is an allocation exclusively for supporting a childs needs. It cannot and should not be used to supplement operational costs. All prices presented will have any relevant escalation factors applied where applicable, including on the CASC element. Department of Communities 4 OOHC CSO Budget Overview $90m has been allocated to CSOs to provide OOHC in 2018/19. This is through recurrent funding and individualised contracts. This same investment will be used to procure the new OOHC care
