Hide Featured Image

The Office of the State Controller (OSC) has issued a policy for State Staffing and Obligations for SLFRF (State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds).

This policy provides definitions and direction for how agencies can obtain approval and report obligations for State staffing for SLFRF by December 2024 and be able to fund State Staffing with SLFRF in 2025 and 2026.

The OSC developed this policy in response to the US Department of the Treasury update to FAQs that included a new FAQ, 13.17.  This FAQ provides that state and localities may follow their own policies and practices concerning when they are considered to have incurred an obligation for payroll costs.
