Abstract: DRUG ABUSE TREATMENT PROGRAMS AND THE PUBLIC AGENCIES THAT FUND AND OVERSEE THEIR OPERATIONS MUST ADOPT A BUSINESS-ORIENTED APPROACH TO PROGRAM OPERATIONS. THIS INVOLVES EMPHASIS ON MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES SUCH AS PLANNING AND BUDGETING, COST ACCOUNTING, FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT, RECORDKEEPING, AND MONITORING TO ANSWER A HOST OF DAILY MANAGEMENT QUESTIONS. THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ADDRESSING THESE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION NEEDS IS FOCUSED AT THE STATE AND FEDERAL LEVELS, WHICH MUST COORDINATE A MIXTURE OF UMBRELLA AGENCIES AND LOCAL PROGRAMS. TO ASSIST STATES IN MEETING THIS NEED, THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF DRUG ABUSE (NIDA) HAS DEVELOPED A MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (MIS) COMPOSED OF THREE MAJOR COMPONENTS, WHICH COLLECT MANAGEMENT DATA DEALING WITH ALL ASPECTS OF DRUG ABUSE TREATMENT AND TOGETHER FORM THE BASIS FOR A COMPREHENSIVE MIS AT THE STATE LEVEL. THE CLIENT-ORIENTED DATA ACQUISTION PROCESS (CODAP) COLLECTS DATA ON ALL CLIENTS ADMITTED OR DISCHARGED FROM TREATMENT; THE NATIONAL DRUG ABUSE TREATMENT UTILIZATION SURVEY (NDATUS) COLLECTS FACILITY (CLINIC) INFORMATION; AND THE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (FMIS) COLLECTS FISCAL DATA ON PROGRAM TYPES. CODAP IS AN ONGOING REPORTING REQUIREMENT FOR ALL FEDERALLY-SUPPORTED TREATMENT PROGRAMS. NDATUS IS CONDUCTED ANNUALLY IN ALL TREATMENT PROGRAMS, REGARDLESS OF FUNDING SOURCES. FMIS IS DESIGNED SOLELY TO MEET STATE NEEDS, IS OPTIONAL FOR STATES, AND IS NOT A REPORTING REQUIREMENT FOR NIDA. EXTENSIVE EXHIBITS DESCRIBE THE OPERATION OF THE FMIS.
