Comment Period for Executive Order 38 Proposed Regulations Now Open:
Limits State-funded administrative costs & executive compensation
The State of New York directly or indirectly funds with taxpayer dollars a large number of tax exempt organizations and for-profit entities that provide critical services to New Yorkers in need. The goal of these proposed regulations is to ensure that taxpayers' dollars are used properly, efficiently, and effectively to improve the lives of New Yorkers. It is imperative that New York State and the New York State Office for the Aging ensure that state funds and state authorized funds are optimized for the purpose of providing services to those individuals who are in need of them. Utilizing state funds and state authorized funds primarily for the provision of direct care and services helps to guarantee that such funds are providing the greatest benefit to older New Yorkers. These proposed regulations, which are required by Executive Order No. 38, will ensure that State funds or State-authorized payments paid by the New York State Office for the Aging to providers are used predominantly to provide direct care and services to older New Yorkers. In order to achieve these goals, the New York State Office is proposing a new Part 6656 of its regulations (9 NYCRR 6656).
