Just a reminder that accountability and transparency certifications are due to the Department of Treasury by December 1, 2014. You’ll recall that this is the only requirement remaining from the old EVIP program.
To meet the requirements for Accountability & Transparency under the revenue sharing program, eligible local units must certify to Treasury that they have produced and made available to the public a citizen’s guide, a performance dashboard, a debt service report and a projected budget report.
You can find additional information and forms on the Department of Treasury’s website.
