Appeal Process through the State Board of Finance

Agencies wishing to appeal a Board of Finance per diem allowance due to hardship must contact the Secretary of State's office prior to the Tuesday preceding the third Tuesday of each month to be placed on the meeting agenda. This request must be in writing and signed by the requesting agency's department or office head.

Once placed on the agenda, requests will be heard during the meeting and voted on by the membership. Agencies will be provided written confirmation of the Board's decision.

If the request is approved, agencies must attach the written confirmation they receive from the Board to the voucher when submitting the claim to the State Auditor for payment.
