Explanation

This bill results in a one-time consultant cost of approximately $15,000 to the Department of Public Health (DPH) to study means of implementing the recommendations of the Diabetes Advisory Council. The consultant expense is estimated at $60 per hour for services, plus $40 per hour for fringe/administrative/indirect expenses, for a total cost of $100 per hour. Federally-funded diabetes staff cannot undertake this work as it extends beyond the approved scope of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention diabetes grant. A part-time staff person (0.5 Full-Time Equivalency), supported under the General Fund, administers the DPH's Diabetes Prevention and Control Program.

The Out Years

There is no fiscal impact to DPH in the out-years as the report on the study must be completed by 1/1/19.
