STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners authorize the County Mayor or County Mayor’s Designee to execute the Cooperative Agreement between Miami-Dade County and the State Attorney of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit to attempt the service of process on Title IV-D Child Support Enforcement actions. The period of this cooperative agreement is July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2018. Federal funding in the amount of $285,000.00 has been allocated for the first year, July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014.

Scope
The agreement will provide countywide services.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
Miami-Dade County will be reimbursed an estimated $285,000.00 for the service of process for Title IV-D Child Support Enforcement cases. These are federal funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Agency for Children and Families, Office of Child Enforcement, Florida Department of Revenue, and the State Attorney Eleventh Judicial Circuit.

Track Record/Monitor
Reinaldo Valdes, Major, Sheriff Services Bureau of the Miami-Dade Police Department will monitor this agreement.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
The previous agreement approved by the Board of County Commissioners through Resolution R-1032-09 on July 21, 2009, has concluded and a new agreement is required. The annual Federal funding for the previous agreement ranged from $282,994.00 to $287, 847.00.

The Miami-Dade Police Department is required to serve process and orders in child support enforcement cases and is only entitled to reimbursement at the prevailing rate of federal financial participation (F.S. Section 409.257). The State Attorney is the administrative agency for child support enforcement in Miami-Dade County and has requested to contract with the Miami-Dade Police Department to attempt service of civil documents, in compliance with federal and state requirements.

Civil documents served by the Miami-Dade Police Department consists of summons and complaints, subpoenas (except witness subpoena), orders to show cause, contempt notices to appear, default orders and judgments, notice to absent parent for deemed income orders, writs of bodily attachment and commitment orders. The authorized fee for service of process is $20 and $70 for writs of bodily attachment. The County will be reimbursed the non-negotiable rate of 66 percent, the approved matching rate for federal expenditures. For the first year of the agreement, the reimbursement amount is estimated at $285,000.00.
