Valuation of the Historic Preservation Tax Incentive Program in California

Valuation of the Historic Preservation Tax Incentive Program in California

Figures 1shows how the trend of tax credit distributions closely matches the movement of the market (US Census data) over the previous three decades. The data set reveals that the preservation tax incentive program is not a shelter to the movements of the market, an idea preservation advocates often present. Figure 1 demonstrates that the preservation tax incentive program is volatile, with a strong correlation to the overall real estate market. The relative increase and decrease in value over time indicates that the volume of tax credit allocations is a factor of the overall market for new development. The preservation tax incentive program does not “incentivize” new development, but rather creates an investment vehicle that may be appealing to some equity investors or general partners in times of strong real estate markets.

Re: Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Electronic Health Record Incentive Program

Re: Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Electronic Health Record Incentive Program

CMS’ proposed rule must take into greater account that physician practices will be required to make large financial investments in EHR systems and will be forced to reduce their patient workload during the implementation phase, which comes as the nation faces a physician shortage, a flawed Sustainable Growth Rate formula, and unstable economy. Because of these challenges, coupled with the lack of necessary infrastructure, the AOA urges CMS to scale back its objectives for Stage 1. The AOA appreciates the efforts of CMS in developing the definition and criteria of meaningful use for the EHR incentive program. We recognize that these efforts come as a result of listening sessions with providers and organizations, and public meetings conducted by the HIT Policy and Standards Committees as well as the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics.

THE STATE OF OHIO OFFICE OF MEDICAL ASSISTANCE BALANCING INCENTIVE PROGRAM APPLICATION

THE STATE OF OHIO OFFICE OF MEDICAL ASSISTANCE BALANCING INCENTIVE PROGRAM APPLICATION

The Balancing Incentive Program’s (BIP) operating requirements align with many of the reform initiatives proposed in Ohio. For example, our current work to develop a core standardized assessment was previously identified as a balancing initiative through the State’s Money Follows the Person (MFP) program. This work creates an opportunity for Ohio to implement uniform standards across systems, and is consistent with federal requirements for BIP participation. It is for this reason that Ohio has committed to applying for and implementing the structural reforms required by BIP. The application that follows charges the State’s twelve Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs), which serve as the statutorily designated lead agencies in the statewide Aging and Disability Resource Network (ADRN), with organizing and managing a system of no wrong door/single entry point (NWD/SEP) agencies implementing BIP in Ohio. The ADRN will be supported by a vendor(s) responsible for managing a statewide toll free (1-800) number, as well as for maintaining a comprehensive website offering information and referral assistance. Ohio believes this coordinated effort will strengthen the ADRN by fostering strategic partnerships with state agencies and local/regional organizations to promote consumer access.

A Two-sided Incentive Program for Coordinating the Influenza Vaccine Supply Chain

A Two-sided Incentive Program for Coordinating the Influenza Vaccine Supply Chain

Finally, through an extensive numerical study, we examine the impact of vaccine efficacy on the demand- and supply-side inefficiency and evaluate the performance of our two-sided incentive program. We find that the manufacturer can be better off with imperfect vaccines and thus may have some financial incentives to not develop a more effective vaccine. Interestingly, we also find that a more effective vaccine can make the vaccine supply chain more inefficient. In addition, the numerical study reveals that our incentive program can reduce the social costs by more than 70%. It also indicates that ‘one-sided’ mechanisms examined in the literature (that focus on demand (or supply) side by ignoring uncertain yield (or individuals’ self-interest)) can increase social costs, and our two-sided incentive program outperforms them, especially when the yield uncertainty is high and/or infection costs among the population are low.

The Navy’s superior supplier incentive program: analysis of supplier proposed benefits

The Navy’s superior supplier incentive program: analysis of supplier proposed benefits

The Department of Defense (DOD) launched the Superior Supplier Incentive Program in 2013 to adopt industry best practices on supply and supplier management and to explore opportunities to provide the high- performing defense contractors with benefits or reliefs that would reduce administrative burdens and streamline processes. The Department of the Navy provided an opportunity for its 2014 Superior Suppliers to submit white papers suggesting possible reliefs or benefits that would improve efficiency. This paper analyzes the 55 proposed benefits using three frameworks—Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) policy analysis, contract management process analysis, and risk-benefit analysis—to identify patterns or consistencies. The research reveals that FAR Part 42, Contract Management and Audit Services, and the contract management phase represent the most frustration for the Superior Suppliers. The results of the analysis can be used as a surrogate measure to identify potential improvements in the DOD’s current acquisition practices.

Medicaid Questions on the CMS EHR Incentive Program Final Rule

Medicaid Questions on the CMS EHR Incentive Program Final Rule

First, it is important to note that when discussing 2013, CMS stated that it expects to engage in another cycle of rulemaking for that year. Under our current rules, the 90-day period has to be in the next calendar year 2013. Payment year is defined in 42 CFR 495.4 as a calendar year beginning with CY 2011, and for Medicaid, the first payment year is the first calendar year for which the EP receives an incentive payment. The second payment year is then the second calendar year for which the EP receives the incentive payment. Because each payment year is tied to a separate calendar year, and because for Medicaid, for the first year of demonstrating MU the EHR reporting period must be a continuous 90-day within the calendar year (with all

Market Lift: The Enigma of Incentive Program Redesign

Market Lift: The Enigma of Incentive Program Redesign

Market Lift programs represent a relatively recent addition to energy-efficiency program designs. These programs provide retailers or manufacturers with incentives for increasing the sales of promotional bulbs over a baseline (or pre-lift period) of historical and comparison-area sales. The design is desirable from a programmatic perspective because retailers are rewarded for sales above a baseline and, as such, energy- efficiency program administrators (PAs) can claim full savings for the lift achieved. “Net” market lift represents the difference between the sales increases in participating stores and those in comparison stores This paper summarizes the findings of an evaluation of a recent market lift initiative in Massachusetts. The Massachusetts electric PAs applied this design to energy-efficient lighting, specifically standard, spiral compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). Market lift programs differ from the more common upstream approach, which brings the shelf price of bulbs down by providing incentives directly to the manufacturer or retailer, in a number of important ways, including:

Electronic Health Record Incentive Program

Electronic Health Record Incentive Program

For purposes of Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments, CMS proposes to define the EHR reporting period to be any continuous 90- day period within the first payment year and the entire payment year for all subsequent payment years. We strongly support the proposed 90-day reporting period for the first payment year. However, we believe that this policy should not only apply to 2011 but to any “first” payment year for a given EP or eligible hospital. Such a broadened application of the 90-day reporting period would give EPs and eligible hospitals a better opportunity of qualifying for Medicare and Medicaid EHR incentive payments at the earliest opportunity, which we believe was the Congressional intent. Further, it would acknowledge the many difficulties inherent in acquiring, implementing, and meaningfully using certified EHR technology.
