5 Year Financial & Compliance Audit – Award of Contract (RB only)
Staff recommends that the Recycling Board approve the contract award and authorize execution of a funding agreement with Crowe Horwath LLP for the Financial and Compliance Five Year Audit, for a total not-to-exceed amount of $179,800, per their proposal to the Board. $97,090 will be awarded from the approved FY 14/15 budget for Phase I of the scope of work. Upon satisfactory completion of Phase I, the remaining $82,710 will be allocated from the FY 15/16 budget (the work will commence after the end of FY 15/16) and will be included in the FY 15/16 budget resolution.
Accumulated Measure D Fund Balances Exceeding Policy Threshold –
It is recommended that the Recycling Board:
Adopt by the attached resolution a revision to “Rule 2” in Resolution #2006-12, changing the threshold of member agency unspent Recycling Fund monies that triggers ineligibility for further allocations absent an approved Expenditure Plan from the sum of the last eight quarterly per capita allocations to one of the options listed in the staff report. If an option includes an adjustment for population, the population figures used in the first quarterly disbursement of each fiscal year shall be applied each fiscal year to calculate the threshold. It is recommended that this revised threshold apply to the fund balances reported at the end of FY 13/14 and each year forward.
Definition of “Adequate Commercial Recycling” for Purpose of Determining Municipal Eligibility to Receive Measure D Per Capita Allocations (RB only)
Accept this report and re-affirm the definition of adequate commercial recycling. (Note that the policy allows the Board to consider not withholding Measure D funds if a member agency fails to satisfy the policy and can persuade the Board it should not withhold Measure D funds).
