DYCD utilizes a financial document called the Program Expenses Report Summary (PERS) to detail and track expenditures of funded CBO providers for goods and services. CBOs are required to list all expenses for program-related goods and services on the PERS form.

DYCD fiscal staff then evaluates the information detailed on the PERS form to determine whether the expenses submitted are appropriate for its contracted services, and are within the approved budget. From this evaluation, DYCD determines the amount of funds that it will reimburse the CBO for appropriate, contract-related expenses.
