Some of the questions are:
- Are there court orders connected to the agency? (e.g., LaShawn, Salazar, Dixon, Jerry M., Blackman/Jones, Evans)
- Are there requirements related to federal funding? (i.e., Maintenance of Effort (MOE), Match)
- Is this a one-time expenditure or revenue source? If so, is it truly a one-time?
And for those still working on the mayor's staff in advance of the release of the FY 2012 budget, be sure to ask them these questions.
