LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1481, as introduced, Patterson. The Financial Information System for California (FISCal): the California State Auditor’s Office’s annual report.
Existing law, the Financial Information System for California (FISCal) Act, establishes the FISCal system, a single integrated financial management system for the state. Existing law requires the California State Auditor’s Office, until the system is completed, to independently monitor the system as appropriate, and to report, at a minimum, on or before January 10 of each year, on the system activities that the auditor deems appropriate.
This bill, instead, would require that reporting, at a minimum, on or before January 11 of each year.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 11864 of the Government Code is amended to read:

(b) The California State Auditor’s Office shall report, at a minimum, on or before January 10 11 of each year, on the system activities that the California State Auditor’s Office deems appropriate to monitor pursuant to this section in a manner consistent with Chapter 6.5 (commencing with Section 8543) of Division 1.
(c) This section shall not supersede or compromise the Department of Technology’s oversight authority and responsibilities with respect to the system.
