ADMINISTRATIVE LETTER: 10
FROM: Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner
DATE: August 25, 2008
SUBJECT: Notice of Withholding Subsidy for Late Reporting
Notice of withholding of subsidy pursuant to 20-A MRSA 6801-A:
A current list of those school administrative units for which subsidy will be withheld, beginning with the September 2008 subsidy check, due to late reporting of data is available at the following Department of Education Reporting Missing Reports website:
http://portalx.bisoex.state.me.us/pls/doe/eddev.formscheckin.searchmissingreports (At this website click on “Subsidy Checks To Be Withheld Based on Missing Financial and/or Enrollment Reports”)
If the missing report(s) on this website has been completed and submitted to the Department of Education at least two days prior to the monthly subsidy payment date then that unit’s subsidy will not be withheld. However, this list does not include “incomplete” reports. If we find, after submission of the data, that the data are not complete or are missing information, you will be notified that the data are incomplete and that subsidy will be withheld until the data are complete.
Opportunity for hearing pursuant to 20-A MRSA 6801-A:
In accordance with statute, we offer you an opportunity for a hearing or to submit written testimony in lieu of hearing. Please submit the enclosed form by September 8, 2008 indicating whether you are requesting to be heard at a hearing to be scheduled in September or whether you are providing written testimony with this form in lieu a hearing. A hearing date will be set once the number of participants is determined.
Reminder of new law on payments of withheld subsidy and penalties for late submission of data:
Public Law 2007, Chapter 539 was enacted by the legislature and signed by Governor Baldacci on March 31, 2008. Part C of this recently enacted law strengthens the statutes regarding withholding subsidy payments and establishes new language regarding a penalty for late submission of required data. For more detailed information regarding these changes to statute, see Administrative Letter #2 dated 7/9/08. Following are two important changes to the statutes enacted in Chapter 539:
