Fiscal Policy and Analysis Overview

The Office of Fiscal & Monitoring Services, Bureau of County Finance and Technical Assistance houses the Fiscal Policy and Analysis Section.  The Section researches and develops guidance regarding state and federal fiscal requirements and analyzes fiscal reports generated by the County Finance Reporting system (CFIS).

 
Fiscal Policy

The Fiscal Policy staff are responsible for the development and writing of Ohio Administrative Code rules and fiscal administrative policy providing guidance and procedures for administrative and reporting functions and requirements of workforce development agencies/local areas, as defined in ORC §6301.01, and for county family services agencies, as defined in ORC §307.981.

The primary function and purpose of implementing fiscal policy and Ohio Administrative Code rules is to provide direction and technical assistance, and to ensure statutory compliance with the Ohio Revised Code and federal regulations.

All fiscal or fiscally-impacted rules, policies, manual transmittal letters, forms, and administrative procedure letters developed and maintained by the Fiscal Policy and Analysis Section for the operational use of the Bureau of County Finance and Technical Assistance (BCFTA) may be accessed through this web site and can be found in the Fiscal Administrative Procedure Manual (FAPM).

Most fiscal policies are filed as internal management rules and can become effective 10 days after completion. Rules exemplifying emergency legislation, legislative rescission of existing rules or rules that are required to be filed under Chapter 119 of the Ohio Revised Code are exceptions to this timeframe.

Fiscal Analysis

The Fiscal Analysis staff are responsible for analyzing CFIS reports and reviewing monitoring reports and corrective action plans/repayments resulting from fiscal deficiencies discovered in local family services agencies and local areas. 

All fiscal or fiscally-impacted rules, policies, manual transmittal letters, forms, and administrative procedure letters developed and maintained by the Fiscal Policy staff are used to assist county agencies in the correction of noted deficiencies.
