BILL NUMBER:S1410

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law and the state finance law, in relation to
requiring reports by state agencies relating to certain grants and
expenditures made to community based organizations

PURPOSE:
To require an annual report from the division of the budget that
relates to the distribution of funds and grants to community based
organizations that would create greater transparency and
accountability by the department.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends the executive law so that the division of
the budget will be required to submit a report to the legislature by
March first of each year relating to the distribution of funds and
grants to community based organizations. The report will provide a
listing of recipients, organized by zip code, of grants, awards or
funds appropriated for services end programs that are made to
organizations which provide services on a local basis. Additionally,
the report must be posted on the division of the budget website in a
manner which is clear and accessible to the public.

Section 2 amends the executive law so that the division of the budget
will be required to submit a report to the legislature by March first
of each year. This report will relate to the distribution of funds
end grants to community based organizations by or through the
department. The report will provide a listing of recipients,
organized by zip code, of grants, awards or funds appropriated for
services end programs that are made to organizations which provide
services on a local basis. Additionally, the report must be posted on
the division of the budget website in a manner which is clear and
accessible to the public.

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation would create transparency in departmental spending by
providing citizens knowledge of how the government is spending its
budget and where the money is going to. The additional report that
the division of the budget is required to submit would allow citizens
to track the allocation of funds to community based organizations,
which localities the funds are going to, and the type of services and
programs that are being supported.

Concerns raised by Governor Cuomo in his veto of Senate Bill 372 in
2011, including the reporting procedures of the Statewide Financial
System (SFS), are addressed in this new version of the bill. Governor
Cuomo indicated the Statewide Financial System (SFS), which is a
single financial accounting record and central transaction processing
system managed by the Division of Budget, is expected to make such
reports. However, the SFS website is a portal for vendors and state
employees, which would make public access difficult and cumbersome.


The Division of the Budget has the ability to manage data from SFS,
and the website is designed to allow the public easy access to a
number of reports, including the state financial plan, the budget,
and cash levels.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
First introduced in 2010. An previous version of the bill (S.372) was
vetoed in 2011.
2011-2012: S.635E-A - Died in Committee

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.

tions, as the head of the department shall deem necessary or proper, and

subject  to the supervision of the department, or from any agency of the

or before the fifteenth day of October in each year, shall submit to the
governor  a  statement  of  the  sources, amounts and disposition of all
money received by such department, its divisions,  bureaus  or  officers
for  the  preceding  fiscal  year other than money appropriated for such
department by the legislature or money that was paid by such  department
into  the  treasury.  Such  statement shall include a description of the
nature and the amount of each fund, if any, then under  the  supervision
or  control  of  such department or the head thereof or under the super-
vision or control of any division, bureau, commission,  board  or  other
organization  therein or under the supervision or control of the head or

ization,  which  was derived from any source whether or not deposited in
the treasury, a citation of the  statute  authorizing  the  creation  or
establishment  of  each  such  fund  and  the  nature  and amount of any
payments made therefrom during the preceding fiscal year.  The  director
of  the budget in the executive department shall make rules, which shall
be approved by the governor, regulating the form and  contents  of  such
statements.  Copies of such statements shall be simultaneously furnished
to the senate finance committee and the assembly ways and means  commit-
tee for their information.
  2.  The governor, in such form and with such explanation as the gover-
nor may desire, shall transmit to the legislature, with the annual budg-
et, a recapitulation or summary of the  information  contained  in  such

state teachers' retirement fund, or any state employees' retirement  and
pension  fund,  but  such exemption from the application of this section
shall not affect any other provision of law requiring a report or state-
ment of such funds.
  3.  IN ADDITION TO THE ANNUAL REPORT REQUIRED  BY  THIS  SECTION,  THE
DIVISION  OF  THE BUDGET SHALL MAKE A REPORT TO THE LEGISLATURE BY MARCH
