Fiscal Services
The Fiscal Services Division is responsible for developing, implementing and monitoring all of the Agency's budget activities. This encompasses the biennial budget process, annual budget implementation, and projecting federal budget estimates. The Division is also responsible for the management of the Agency's revenue, disbursements and financial obligations as well as performing daily federal cash draws, reconciles and reports on federal grant status.

Monitoring Services
The Monitoring Services Division conducts financial compliance reviews of ODJFS partners and subrecipients identifying opportunities for operational improvement and risk reduction. This division also conducts reviews of public assistance programs evaluating whether the level of benefits or other aspects of program eligibility are determined correctly. Training and technical assistance is also provided to the County Department of Job and Family Services agencies concerning potential fraud abuse and identifying possible overpayment of public assistance benefits.
