To ensure that it does not exceed the maximum amount specified in state law for administrative costs for the BEGIN Program, HCD should continue to reevaluate, as appropriate, its administrative support costs projection and continue to monitor its future costs.
HCD currently forecasts all costs for the life of the program and has a monitoring process to inform management of the need to adjust program administration to keep costs within statutory requirements. HCD indicated that it will continue to re-evaluate its administrative support cost projections and continue to monitor actual program costs. As such, HCD explained that it will maintain documentation of these business practices as needed. (See 2013-406, p. 107)
