Abstract: Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DDs) are one of the housing options along a continuum of care and services for the developmentally disabled in the state of Florida. These long-term care institutions provide necessary twenty-four hour medical care, and active treatment, in a diverse range of facilities throughout the state. This thesis examines the role of state-mandated, private sector administrators in these facilities. Lipsky's theory of street-level bureaucrats is reviewed, in hopes of defining the role of these administrators. Data were collected in hour-long qualitative interviews with six administrators, and contrasted with some contemporary academic work in the fields of disability issues, sociology and gerontology. Terminology such as normalization, deinsititutionalization, community-based service and quality of life is applied and discussed. In my efforts to define these administrators as street-level bureaucrats, whose practice of discretion may contribute to real-world implications on policy, it is revealed that the administrators actually operate as bureaucratic managers whose tasks are strictly confined by necessary administrative codes and fiscal challenges.
