  Section 1. Subdivision 3 of section 219-a  of  the  general  municipal
law,  as  amended by chapter 458 of the laws of 2008, is amended to read
as follows:
  3. The sponsor or designated program  administrator  shall  obtain  an
annual  audit of its records by an independent certified public account-
ant or an independent public accountant, PROVIDED  THAT  FOR  A  SERVICE
AWARD  PROGRAM FOR A POLITICAL SUBDIVISION IN WHICH FIFTY OR FEWER FIRE-
FIGHTERS PARTICIPATE IN SUCH PROGRAM, SUCH AUDIT MAY  BE  OBTAINED  FROM
THE CHIEF FISCAL OFFICER OF SUCH POLITICAL SUBDIVISION. Such audit shall
examine the program's financial conditions, actuarial assumptions, fidu-
ciary  investment  and control, and asset allocations, including whether
current assets are adequate to fund future liabilities. A  copy  of  the
audit  shall  be presented to the program sponsor and to the state comp-
troller by such accountant. Copies of  the  audit  shall  also  be  made
available for public inspection and copying. The audit must be completed
within two hundred seventy days of the program sponsor's fiscal year.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
