The official letter with the recommended proposals was approved by profile committees and filed for consideration at the regional council session. The letter included a situation description in the region with statistics, the description of the need and importance of the particular social services introduction, the prospect of their provision and the determination for which local/regional Program can a proposal be made. Also, a financial proposal for service or a package of services cost was submitted separately.
