On July 1, 2022, Governor Henry McMaster issued Executive Order 2022-19, which directs state agencies to disclose online detailed information about the entities who are receiving appropriations from the FY 2022-23 General Appropriations Act. The governor’s executive order also requires compliance with FY 2022-23 state budget Proviso 117.21, which requires agencies to disclose how the taxpayer funds are spent, prohibits the practice of providing funds in advance to legislators for personal delivery, and requires additional measures designed to increase transparency and accountability.
Entities are required to fill out and return the following form before receiving any disbursements: Earmarked Appropriations Disbursement Request Form (xlsx)
- Once DDSN receives the Disbursement Request Form, an agreement will be sent to the organization’s contact to be signed. Funds will be disbursed upon receipt of the signed agreement.
After the organization has received the funds, the organization should submit the expenditure information using the Quarterly Expenditure Report Form (xlsx)
