A message from Pam Gilbert, the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) Fiscal Manager:
The ICF unit has re-evaluated the FY 21–22 Transmittal Letter Form which was included with the 9/15/21 mailing of the Mercer created ID-47 Budget/Waiver forms. The primary purpose of the Transmittal Letter was to eliminate the need for the Administrator to sign every waiver request form and to roll them up on to one document for signature. We do not want to create unnecessary work for you or require something that we do not anticipate actually using. Therefore, we have attached a simplified version which only requires the total amount being requested for each site.
If you have already prepared the former version, you may submit that. It is your choice if you wish to use the attached simplified version. We intend to be flexible with the acceptance of these letters while we all work through the transition. In order to get this form out to you as quickly as possible for the 11/1 due date, we have not updated the ID-47 Instructions for this simplified transmittal letter form option.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact both Steve Evitts and me.
