MEMORANDUM NO. 96-08

February 15, 1996

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

Attention: Chief Administrative and Fiscal Officers,
Business Managers, and Purchasing Personnel
Subject: Electronic Memoranda

The State Comptroller, Nancy Wyman, is pleased to announce that effective January 1996 numbered memoranda (beginning with calendar year 1995) are now available for review and can be printed out through the state's CATER (Connecticut Administrative Technology Center) system. Specifically through their Bulletin Boards in the TAO E-Mail System.

It is the intent of the Comptroller to make available all future memoranda through the Bulletin Board in addition to the distribution of paper copies. Tentatively, July 1996 has been targeted as the point in time at which paper copies will no longer be distributed.

Please note for security reasons the signature of the State Comptroller will not be exhibited on any of the memoranda. Memoranda located on the CATER file have all been issued as officially signed documents.

If you have any questions, concerns, or issues you feel should be addressed prior to the implementation of the paperless distribution of memoranda please contact Charlene Roberto or Elise Lentini in the Policy Evaluation and Review Division at 566-5337; or, through the CATER E-Mail system through the following addresses.
