SILC: South Dakota SILC Administrative Support

South Dakota has an effective mechanism in place for carrying out the administrative responsibilities of the SILC. A purchase of service agreement between DRS and the SD CCD provides a part-time executive secretary and administrative assistant to carry out the day-to-day responsibilities for the IL program at the direction of the SILC. These responsibilities include coordinating arrangements for SILC meetings, reimbursing members for expenses, handling all correspondence and reports, coordinating IL training, and assisting in the development and submission of the 704 annual performance report and the SPIL. This mechanism ensures the autonomy of the SILC and provides timely reimbursement to SILC members for expenses incurred participating in SILC activities.
