Mission Statement

Utilizing sound business practices, CDTA facilitates the development of City contracts with health service providers, thus ensuring the availability of community services which protect and promote the health of all San Franciscans.

Functions and Activities

CDTA Program Managers are the principal point of contact for each contract service provider. They can field all questions a contractor may have about their contract with the SFDPH, and if they don't have a specific answer, they can make an appropriate referral.

The most significant function of each CDTA Program Manager is the contract development process.

Other important activities include:

  • Coordination of administrative trainings for contract service providers
  • Non-Clinical technical assistance
  • Coordination of grants between DPH and contract service providers

Beside the community provider, the CDTA Program Manager coordinates and works closely with staff of the following DPH Units: the System of Care (SOC), Budget, Fiscal/Cost Report, the Business Office of Contract Compliance (BOCC), and the Office of Contract Management.
