SB16-038 - Transparency Of Community-centered Boards

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Measures To Promote The Transparency Of Community-Centered Boards, And, In Connection Therewith, Making Certain Community-Centered Boards Subject To The "Colorado Open Records Act" And To Performance Audits Undertaken By The State Auditor And Making All Community-Centered Boards Subject To The "Colorado Local Government Audit Law".

Section 2 of the bill makes all writings made, maintained, or kept by a community-centered board (CCB) that receives more than 75% of its funding on an annual basis from the federal, the state, or a local government or from any combination of such governmental entities subject to public inspection as a "public record" under "Colorado Open Records Act".

Section 3 of the bill requires the state auditor, at least once every 5 years or more frequently at the state auditor's discretion, to conduct or cause to be conducted a performance audit of each CCB that receives more than 75% of its funding on an annual basis from federal, state, or local government, or from any combination of such governmental entities, to determine whether such CCB is effectively and efficiently fulfilling its statutory obligations. A CCB becomes subject to the audit requirement when the CCB initially satisfies the 75% funding requirement for any one year regardless of whether or not the funding level decreases below 75% in any subsequent year. Section 3 of the bill further requires the state auditor to submit a written report and recommendations on each audit conducted and to present the report and recommendations to the legislative audit committee. The cost of any performance audit undertaken is imposed on the CCB.

Section 2 of the bill also makes each CCB subject to the requirements of the "Colorado Local Government Audit Law".
