ODP issued FY 2016-17 standard methodology rate setting letters for most providers by letter dated August 23, 2017. You should evaluate whether the standard methodology funding level is enough to cover the costs of your program(s) for FY 2016-17. If it is, you should let ODP know that you accept the funding level established in the August 23rd letter and withdraw your waiver submissions, by submitting a revised Waiver Form 2.
If the funding level in the August 23rd letter is not sufficient to cover your costs for FY 2016-17, your pending waiver requests will still be reviewed. You can also let ODP know which waiver requests you want to revise or delete or add by submitting a revised Waiver Form 2.
Even though pending waiver requests will be reviewed, you should consult your legal counsel regarding whether you should file an appeal at this time--within 30 days of the August 23, 2017 rate setting letter.
Movement of Funds requests may still be submitted for FY 2016-2017. If you accept the standard methodology for all of your programs, then you should submit the Movement of Funds request to ODP as soon as possible, within 30 days of the rate setting letter. If you are waiting for a reply to your waiver submissions, then you should submit a Movement of Funds request as soon as possible after you receive notice of the final funding levels, within 30 days of the rate correspondence.
