The set of partners working together on a DSRIP initiative is known as the “Performing Provider System” (PPS). Developing a shared governance model for the PPS is a planning activity that will be supported with the Project Design Grant dollars. The Project Advisory Committee (PAC) will serve in an advisory capacity to the PPS governing bodies that have not yet been established.
All partner organizations will be included in the process of developing a governance model. DOH notes that: “in the process of formally approving each Performing Provider System, the state shall articulate a set of standards that each lead entity must follow including specific rules on project oversight, performance payment distribution and other required legal and operational obligations of the lead entity”. In addition, “Coalitions must have a plan for reporting, decision-making, change management, and dispute resolution on performance and incentive payments”.
