  • FY14/15 Agreements with each of those agencies have been prepared to provide the appropriate funding mechanism and service level accountability.
  • Agreements specify that funding recipients must perform specific levels of service and submit documentation supporting the performance of a specified number of units of service as defined in each agreement.  Agencies are also required to submit an audit and proof of insurance.
