Fiscal Accountability Review Unit

The Fiscal Accountability Review (FAR) Unit is responsible for the monitoring of contracted providers to assure that billing to and payments from DIDD are supported by the provider’s documentation of provided services. This monitoring is required for all providers that bill for services in excess of $500,000 per year. FAR also reviews for compliance with the state’s sub-recipient requirements under Central Procurement Office Policy #2013-007 (formerly Policy 22), as well as for provider solvency and other special tests such as public accountability, board minutes, Title VI compliance, subcontracting, personal funds and Deficit Reduction Act compliance. Additionally, FAR works with the Office of Risk Management and Licensure to assure appropriate reporting of suspected waste, fraud and abuse of public funding.
