Pro-Calculation for Center Based

 

The FTE Pro-Calculation for 4410 Center Based must go through one extra phase after the FTE for weeks has been calculated. This is because 4410 center based also has Days-Per-Week and Hours-Per-Day to take into consideration.

For example, lets say Center-Based Program A is a 39 week program that runs 5 days a week and 5 hours per day.

 Lets say a child attends the program for 30 weeks, 4 days per week and 5 hours per day.

 Lets use these COBOL type working storage fields for our calculations:

 WS-PROG-WEEKS                  PIC 99.

WS-PROG-DAYS                      PIC 9.

WS-PROG-HOURS                  PIC 9V99.

WS-CHILD-WEEKS                 PIC 99.

WS-CHILD-DAYS                    PIC 9.

WS-CHILD-HOURS                 PIC 9V99.

 

WS-WEEKS-FTE                      PIC 999V999.

WS-DAYS-HRS-FTE                PIC 999V999.

WS-FINAL-FTE                                        PIC 999V999.

WS-CHILD-DAYSXHRS                       PIC 99V999.

WS-PROG-DAYSXHRS                       PIC 99V999.

Now lets figure out this child’s FTE using these Working-Storage fields with the data from the above example.

 

WS-CHILD-WEEKS/ WS-PROG-WEEKS =               WS-WEEKS-FTE.

30/39 = .769                                     (Note: anything after 3 decimal places is truncated)

If this is a halftime record, then:

WS-WEEKS-FTE/2 = WS-WEEKS-FTE.     

(Not a halftime record in our case. Halftime is not allowed for the Services that are created from the Automated FTP process) 

WS-PROG-DAYS * WS-PROG-HOURS = WS-PROG-DAYSXHRS

5 * 5 = 25.

WS-CHILD-DAYS * WS-CHILD-HOURS = WS-CHILD-DAYSXHRS

4 * 5 = 20

WS-CHILD-DAYSXHRS/ WS-PROG-DAYSXHRS = WS-DAYS-HRS-FTE       

20/25 = 0.800

WS-WEEKS-FTE * WS-DAYS-HRS-FTE = WS-FINAL-FTE

0.769 * 0.800 = 0.615     (truncated from 0.6152)

So, the final FTE is .615. Note that all calculations are truncated.

One final note, for 4410 Center Based, the rate is rounded before calculating the final cost. So, a rate of 12,345.49 will become 12,345, and a rate of 12,345.50 will become 12,346. In our case, if the rate was 12,345.49, then the final cost would be

               12345 * .615 = 7592.17
