This guidance memo is being sent to you as part of our on-going effort to implement and refine an effective approach to the accountability and transparency requirements of the Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. As more information related to the Act and the manner in which the federal government will be implementing its provisions become available to us, we develop a better understanding of the expectations the President, Congress and cognizant federal agencies have relative to our use of recovery funds. Similarly, as we work with state agencies that are themselves learning from federal partners the various “ins and outs” of the flow of recovery funds into the state, we are developing a deeper appreciation for the complexity of managing these monies in a manner that will ensure the degree of transparency and accountability demanded of us.
The complete memo is attached below along with the updated excel template for use with Controller’s Bulletin #FY09-08 and the Grant Accounting, Reporting and Internal Control Plan instructions.
