FUNDING:  General Fund.

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The Auditor-Controller administers one (1) agreement for service that does not have a stated contract term, thus renewing automatically from year to year. Pursuant to Board Policy C-17, departments must obtain authorization from the Board of Supervisors, initially, and on an annual basis, to utilize any contract that does not have a stated contract term.

 

Under this agreement, HdL provides specialized services to the County. HdL has the unique ability to provide a combination of report preparation, data analysis necessary to effectively manage the County’s sales tax base, and to recover revenues erroneously allocated to other jurisdiction and allocation pools.  HdL has in place programs, equipment, and personnel to deliver this sales tax service.
