To ensure that the governorís budget does not overstate funds available for appropriation for the federal account, Public Health should include text in its budget section procedure manual requiring staff to reconcile the revenues, expenditures, and fund balance as supported by Agingís and Public Healthís accounting records to the fund condition statement prepared for inclusion in the governorís budget.
Public Health has updated its budget section procedure manual with the revised fund condition statement procedures. Included in the manual are requirements for budget section staff to reconcile the revenues, expenditures, and fund balance prior to inclusion of the fund condition statement in the governorís budget. Additionally, Public Health stated that its budget section has implemented the procedures manual and held training for staff in March 2011 related to the revised procedures. (See 2012-406, p. 26)
