Next Stop… What’s New with Fiscal?
Tightening of Expenditure/Contract spending More Federal scrutiny of all of our fiscal processes, particularly Expenditure and Advance processes Over-Advancing (in excess of actual need) Underspending (Grants not fully expended) More Fiscal Accountability ◦ Fiscal Team will be returning questionable expenditure postings and advance requests Under/Over budgeted amounts Under/Over advance Tightening of Monthly reporting Timely reporting - monthly No more submitting 2-3 months at a time Late and sporadic AAA monthly reporting causes inaccurate projections at the Statewide level

Contract Under-performing a AAA Fiscal Responsibility FISCAL OFFICER will: Ensure contract funds are fully expended Work with Administration and Program staff monthly Monitor AAA Direct and Provider Contract Expect closer monitoring by CDA Program and Fiscal staff AAA’s will notice an increase in calls from CDA staff AAA’s that appear behind in their spending will be asked to provide a plan for expending all funds

In the current fiscal climate: Funding is tight! Every government entity is under increased scrutiny and accountability for funds. Federal Audit findings related to late pay out of funds State Controller is scrutinizing payment processes Unreconciled Advance Requests - Inability to make accurate Expenditure and Cash projections Every year we have unspent funds we are showing that we don’t have a need for the funding, therefore we increase the risk of losing Federal Funds Potential loss of federal baseline dollars Potential loss of OTO Cannot justify asking for more HICAP dollars
CDA Contract Funded Property Reporting ◦ $500 Limit has been established PM forthcoming… AAA’s must track equipment with a cost of $500 or more New CDA 32 (Property Form) New CDA 248 (Request to Dispose Form) New CDA 248 Process to involve CDA Program and Fiscal staff
Audit Findings – Provider Match CDA Audits has found that many AAA’s have not been testing Provider Match Provider Match must be tested by AAA. Immediately begin testing provider match Can lead to disallowed costs if match is not verified Use risk-based approach to determine amount of testing samples If audit of Match has never been performed – test 100% to establish risk CDA Audits will begin verifying and disallowing costs associated with untested provider match Contact CDA Audits for more information
How’s our Time? Do we have time for Laws, Regs, Policy? Or are we ready for a Q & A period?
Older Americans Act (OAA) Title V – Community Service Senior Opportunities Act Section 502 – Admin Allocations, Non-Federal Share, PWFB Administration Allocation - Not more than 13.5% of federal allotment CDA 5.5% AAA Maximum - 8% Overall Match =10% The Governors Budget removed all Title V funding AAA’s have agreed to pay the 10%, plus CDA’s Admin Match share Current Match = PWFB = 75 % Since CDA keeps 5.5% to Administer Title V, AAA’s PWFB minimum increases to 79% AAA PWFB = 79%
Older Californians Act (OCA) – Enacted 1997 ◦ Established CBSP Programs State funding removed from Governor’s Budget CBSP Program funding eliminated Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) funding remains
