MEMORANDUM NO. 2013-15

June 11, 2013

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

Attention:   Chief Administrative and Fiscal Officers, Business Managers, and Payroll and Personnel Officers
Subject:  Core-CT Chartfield Coding for Super Storm Sandy Funding

If your agency is receiving federal dollars related to Super Storm Sandy, it is important that the deposit and expenditure of these funds be readily identifiable for audit purposes.

Agencies receiving Super Sandy restricted federal grants funds must request the establishment of a new SID beginning with the numbers 295 (295xx). The request for a new federal SID must be submitted through the following link: http://www.core-ct.state.ct.us/financials/chartfield/Default.htm

Even if the Storm Sandy funding is utilizing an existing CFDA number, you must request a new 295xx SID. A single CFDA number may be associated with more than one SID, but each SID may have only one CFDA number. As always, you must also denote whether the funding is in the form of a federal receivable (FR) or is a federal advance (FA). The 295xx SIDs will be within the Grants and Restricted Accounts Funds (Fund 12060 or 12062).

If these dollars are transferred between agencies, the transfer must be to a SID in the 295xx series.

With the exception of the SID coding usage requirement outlined above, federal Super Storm Sandy funding will follow the same accounting rules as all other restricted federal funding.

Questions regarding the establishment of coding may be referred to Chris Bacon at 860-702-3386. All other questions may be referred to John Clark at 860-702-3350 or Bob Gribbon at 860-702-3352.
