DCF 153.06(1)(1) In consultation with the county contract committee, the department shall determine all of the following:
DCF 153.06(1)(a) (a) Weight. A weight to be given each performance measure in s. DCF 153.05 (2). The combined weight of the measures shall total 100%.
DCF 153.06(1)(b) (b) Performance scales. Performance scales used to determine agency earned levels based on performance on each measure in s. DCF 153.05 (2). There shall be the following two methods of determining earned levels:
DCF 153.06(1)(b)1. 1. Performance levels and corresponding earned levels based on federal performance levels at 45 CFR 305.33, taking into consideration any potential penalties under 45 CFR 305.40.

DCF 153.07 DCF 153.07 Incentive payment formula. The formula to determine the amount of an agency's incentive payment is a 4-step process as follows:
DCF 153.07(1) (1) The first step is to determine an agency's earned amount for each performance measure by multiplying each agency's allocation by the weighted earned level for each measure. The agency's earned amounts for all measures are then added to determine the agency's combined earnings.
DCF 153.07(2) (2) The second step is determining the statewide combined earnings by adding the agency combined earnings from sub. (1) for all agencies.
DCF 153.07(3) (3) The third step is determining each agency's share of the total available incentive funding by dividing the agency combined earnings under sub. (1) by the statewide combined earnings under sub. (2).
DCF 153.07(4) (4) The fourth step is determining each agency's incentive payment amount by multiplying the agency's share of the total available incentive funding under sub. (3) by the total available incentive funding.

DCF 153.08(2) (2) A tribe or tribal organization that enters into a cooperative agreement with the department for the delivery of child support services under the state plan pursuant to 42 USC 654(33) shall receive an incentive payment under this chapter based on the same criteria and subject to the same restrictions as counties carrying out activities under the state plan. A tribe or tribal organization that receives direct tribal child support enforcement funding pursuant to 42 USC 655(f) may not receive an incentive payment under this chapter.
DCF 153.08(3) (3) The total state and federal incentive payments to a county per year under s. 49.24, Stats., may not exceed the costs per year of the county's child support program under s. 49.22, Stats.
DCF 153.08(4) (4) A county that receives any state or federal incentive payments under s. 49.24, Stats., may use the funds only to pay costs under its child support program under s. 49.22, Stats.
DCF 153.08(5) (5) A county that receives any state or federal incentive payments under s. 49.24, Stats., may use the funds only to supplement, and not supplant, the baseline level of county funding for its child support program as determined by averaging the county's contribution to its IV-D expenditures in calendar years 1996, 1997, and 1998, unless waived by the department. The department will waive this subsection if the state is in compliance with 45 CFR 305.35.
