OAR 411-011-0000
Provision of Services by Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs)


“No supportive or nutrition services will be directly provided by the State agency or an Area Agency on Aging, except where, in the judgment of the State agency, provision of such services by the state agency or an Area Agency on Aging is necessary to assure an adequate supply of such services, or where such services are directly related to such State or Area Agency on Aging’s administrative functions, or where such services of comparable quality can be provided more economically by such State or Area Agency on Aging.” (Older Americans Act, as amended through 1984, Section 307(a)(10)).


In districts where the county has been designated the Area Agency on Aging and where the county has multiple responsibilities for health and social service delivery, services may be provided through an interagency agreement between the Area Agency on Aging and the pertinent health or social services components of the county.


Decision of the Seniors and People with Disabilities Division on provision of services shall be based on the following criteria:


Adequacy of supply;


Administrative functions:


Program Development, Coordination, Advocacy, Title XIX Case Management, and Oregon Project Independence Case Management at the option of the Area Agency on Aging are considered integral to AAA administration;


The AAA may also provide service(s) directly when it can demonstrate, on the basis of documentation in the area plan, that it would not be practical to separate the service(s) from the AAA’s overall administrative functions. The services which may be directly related to administrative functions are: non-Title XIX Case Management, Information and Referral and Meal Site Supervision.


Quality and Economy — This will be based upon the competitive process as specified under OAR 411-011-0005 (Competitive Procurement)(2).
