It’s the season for severe storms, including tornadoes. Please make sure that your emergency plans are up to date. The State Auditor’s Emergency Accountability Plan for local governments is online at http://www.osa.ms.gov/downloads/emergency-accountability-plan.pdf. This document provides information on emergency management and fiscal management, including emergency purchasing.
For those who have expenditures under the disaster declaration(s): Please be sure that you document your expenditures and have someone responsible for maintaining that documentation. If disaster reimbursement funding comes through, you will need to be able to document expenditures for which you wish reimbursement!
