Joint resolution approving a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Lake County Nineteenth Judicial Circuit Court and Gateway Foundation, Inc., located at 55 E. Jackson, Suite 1500, Chicago, Illinois, 60604, to establish coordination of treatment services for Lake County Court referrals.

 

Staff Summary

                     Gateway Foundation, Inc. provides residential substance abuse treatment for clients of the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit Court.

                     Funding for treatment at Gateway, which in past years has exceeded $90,000, is largely provided by an Adult Redeploy grant through the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA). A small amount is funded by the Court.

                     ICJIA requires a MOU with service providers.

                     The Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS), Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (SUPR) annually sets a reimbursement rate that it will pay to providers.  It also requires that treatment providers charge other organizations no less than the SUPR uniform or negotiated rate for that service.

                     Pursuant to Article 10-101 of the Lake County Purchasing Ordinance, Cooperative Purchasing, Lake County may participate in a cooperative purchasing agreement for the procurement of goods in accordance with one or more public procurement unit in accordance with an agreement entered into between the participants.

                     The Lake County Purchasing Agent has determined that the use of the SUPR rate complies with the Lake County Purchasing Ordinance.
