CA Welf & Inst Code Section 18906

The department shall establish and maintain a plan whereby costs for county administration of CalFresh under this chapter will be effectively controlled within the amounts annually appropriated for such administration. The plan, to be known as the County Administrative Cost Control Plan, shall establish standards and performance criteria, including workload, productivity and support services standards, to which counties shall adhere. The plan shall be part of a single state plan, jointly developed by the department and the State Department of Health Care Services, for administrative cost control for the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), CalFresh, and Medical Assistance (Medi-Cal) programs. Allocations shall be made to each county and shall be limited by and determined based upon the County Administrative Cost Control Plan. In administering the plan to control county administrative costs, the department shall not allocate state funds to cover county cost overruns which result from county failure to meet requirements of the plan. The department and the State Department of Health Care Services shall budget, administer, and allocate state funds for county administration in a uniform and consistent manner.
