Quality Assurance Committee
The Sedgwick County Developmental Disability Organization (SCDDO) is required by Article 64 to ensure the quality of services provided to persons served. To do so, SCDDO must facilitate on-site monitoring by a local committee made up of persons served, their families, guardians, interested citizens, and providers. This Quality Assurance Committee (QAC) evaluates services based on the person-centered planning documentation, individual support needs, and individual satisfaction. All information relating to the QAC process can be found in the QAC Manual below:

Targeted Case Managers (TCMs) are responsible to provide notification to SCDDO Funding Committee regarding timely access to services and utilization of funding to ensure usage of available resources and network capacity for individuals eligible for Intellectual and/or Developmental Disability (IDD) services.
Support and Service Plans (Non HCBS waiver participants)
Based on Article 30-63-21, providers are required to maintain a Person-Centered Support Plan (PCSP) for all individuals accessing services and that plan shall direct the services provided. The Sedgwick County network of providers rely on the Targeted Case Management (TCM) agency to complete this task, however some individuals chose not to have TCM services. In those situations, the provider(s) are responsible to develop the plan. The support plan tools and guides below are available to be utilized when an individual does not receive TCM services to ensure that regulations and SCDDO policies are being met. Please contact TCM Coordinator at 316-660-7660 for questions.

Emerging Practices for Support Plan Development
Emerging Practices for Support Plan Development was developed by a team of stakeholders who focused on identifying new ways to engage teams around the development of the individualized person-centered support plan. This practice includes a set of tools to involve all of the people that are important to the individual and guarantees that all members of the support team have input. Based on the perceived benefits and the pilot project outcomes, the workgroup would recommend that the Emerging Practices of Support Plan Development be available for use by all service providers.
