COST ALLOCATION PLAN: A-87 & FULL COSTING
Government cost allocation may sound scary or downright boring! Malcon frees local officials and their staff from the drudgery of preparing a Cost Allocation Plan (or commonly referred to as CAP) to generate thousands of dollars in Federal reimbursements. How does Malcon accomplish this goal?
- Malcon uses experienced consultants to perform all tasks necessary for a successful CAP.
- Cutting edge technology is used to “mine data” from the clients that minimizes client involvement and recoups the highest recoveries.
CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT/TITLE IV-D REIMBURSEMENT OPTIMIZATION
The welfare of our children is of the utmost importance to our society. In Malcon’s small way, we partner with County Clerks, Judges and Prosecutors to optimize the Federal Title IV-D, Child Support Enforcement Program. Malcon goes beyond “filling out forms” that recover reimbursement back to counties but formulates action plans that empower local officials to manage their responsibilities of the IV-D program to provide the most good to the IV-D children and their parents.
BUSINESS PROCESS ANALYSIS
Local government is under tremendous pressure to provide essential services to its citizens as resources to provide those services become tighter and tighter. Malcon’s team of consultants looks beyond the rhetoric of “more business-like” overhauls to work collaboratively with local officials to seek creative solutions that incorporate the best of government and industry.
COST BASED USER FEE ANALYSIS
City and County officials are looking for ways to fund services that are necessary or enhance the communities served. Malcon can help by performing an analysis of specific services to identify the full (direct and indirect) costs to provide the service, the demand from the public for the service and recommend fees that are equitable to the users with balanced subsidies from the community. One of the most important benefits that Malcon provides is the facts of these services to officials, community leaders and the citizens that enables open discussions resulting in informed decisions.
JAIL/DETENTION RATE STUDIES/US MARSHALS SERVICE
The US Marshals Services provides cost reimbursement to Counties and Cities for the housing of Federal inmates in local detention facilities, both adult and juvenile. Malcon’s expertise in cost analysis in Federal cost reimbursement provides deliverables to local officials in “hard-copy” / off-line reports. This service enables local officials to know before “pressing the submit key” what rate they are entitled to and whether or not it is in the best interest of the organization to house outside inmates.
