Best Practices Worksheet

The State's Fiscal Year 2017 Appropriations Act (P.L. 2016, c.10) requires the Division of Local Government Services ("Division") to issue a Best Practices Inventory to be completed by each municipality.  As in previous years, the maximum amount of aid that is subject to being withheld by the Division is the full amount of the final aid payment (December 1 for Calendar Year municipalities).  Please click to access the current Best Practices Inventory, located under CY2016/SFY2017 Program.

Changes to Best Practices Inventory include a reduction in the total number of questions (from 50 to 30), along with the elimination of the ability to answer "Prospective" on any question.  Municipalities must receive positive credit on a minimum of 22 questions in order to avoid withholding of aid.   Given the introduction of several new questions and the reduced overall number of questions, the Division reserves the right to determine withholding percentages upon receiving all completed CY2016 Best Practices Inventories.
