FUNDING:  N/A

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

Policy B-8, Intra-County Service Charges Policy, was adopted in 1996.  The policy, in short, establishes a "service charges review committee" to review all services charges between departments, and to make recommendations for use in the annual budget.  Based on a recent review of policies and discussion between the Chief Administrative Office and Auditor-Controller, it is recognized that this policy does not appropriately reflect current practice, would not be efficient to implement in conjunction with current practices, and is no longer is necessary. Both the direct charge and the internal cost allocation plan (A-87) methodologies are determined based on recommendations from County Chief Fiscal Officers and the CAO, and approved upon concurrence of the Auditor-Controller. Both offices recommend that the policy be rescinded.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could choose to retain the policy, or to modify the policy.
