The DBHDS Office of Support Services (OSS), formerly known as the Office of Community Contracting, negotiates and administers performance contracts and authorizes funding of community services boards (CSBs). OSS monitors the accomplishment of contract objectives, performance and outcome measures, and compliance with contract assurances directly and in conjunction with other DBHDS offices. In addition, OSS analyzes and interprets CSB data, consults on CSB administrative and management issues, interprets policies and procedures, fosters mutual understanding and cooperation between CSBs and DBHDS, and works with advocacy organizations and stakeholders.
