Pursuant to Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 166, which was signed last year, the Office of the State Comptroller announced a COVID-19 Compliance and Oversight Project to conduct reviews, audit state and local entities, review procurements, and investigate fraud, waste, and abuse of public funding. The scope of the OSC’s COVID-19 Compliance and Oversight Project is limited to matters of compliance, accountability, and oversight. It does not provide legal advice or make policy decisions.
In addition to the American Rescue Plan guidance provided by the United States Treasury in the Interim Final Rule, as well as the League’s blog post on this subject, the League expects guidance from the NJ Division of Local Government Services and the NJ Department of the Treasury and will share that information with municipalities when it becomes available.
