DY3 IGT DSRIP Monitoring schedule by provider


This year, HHSC plans to request $4 million IGT to support two forthcoming contracts – one for DSRIP compliance monitoring and one for DSRIP financial monitoring.  The rule specifies that HHSC will proportionately allocate the monitoring IGT based on the official DSRIP DY3 project values as of January 1.  HHSC has done that in this spreadsheet and will request these monitoring amounts at the time of the July DSRIP payment.


If an IGT entity has any questions about its monitoring amount on the attached spreadsheet, please email the Transformation Waiver email box at This email address is being protected from spambots.
