PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 392-115 WAC, Finance -- Audit resolution process.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.300.175 (for state funds) and OMB Circular A-133 (for federal funds).
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This WAC has not been updated since 1997 and is in need of clarification on what is required to be resolved as well as making some other minor housekeeping changes to make the process more clearly understood. Also, there is a need to establish a threshold for recovery of state funds, due to budget cuts and staff reductions.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Jennifer Carrougher, (360) 725-6288.
