Members of UDOT and UAC connected this week in an effort to begin re-writing the eligible purposes for which B&C funds can be used. Part of the effort is to verify that Counties are being compliant and that they can meet the terms of any future audits.
UDOT would like to keep better track of where B&C funds are being spent. Following the money and showing that allocations are reaching local infrastructure projects. This also includes self-certified mileage, local entity record keeping, maintaining documentation, and the possibility of having counties use standard accounting practices.
Overall very little is in need of change, but we are pleased to have UDOT’s engagement with us in this process.
