Comprehensive Services Act
Children's Services Act - CSA
The Comprehensive Services Act was enacted by the Virginia General Assembly in 1993 to ensure that youth and families in need of services would receive the necessary funding and services to address the various issues of the child and his or her family. Contracts & Procurement Management works with the various human service agencies of the County government to ensure that Fairfax County residents receive the vital services they need to ensure the safety, stability and ultimately an appropriate level of self-sufficiency for the child and their family.
The Contracts & Procurment Management CSA team oversees the contracting process which includes entering into new contracts, renewals and terminations of existing contracts, performance measurement, ensuring provider compliance, investigation of noncompliance complaints and supports human service case managers and County residents in finding appropriate services for individual clients.
Approved providers will be offered an Agreement for the Purchase of Services with the Community Policy Management Team beginning July 1, 2016. The Agreement for the Purchase of Services (APOS) is comprised of the overreaching APOS, the Addendum describing the specific type of services, and the individual purchase order issued on behalf of each individual youth being proivded a service funded by the Children's Services Act.
