New York State Consolidated Fiscal Reporting Interagency Committee
Dear Fiscal Officer:
The Consolidated Fiscal Reporting (CFR) Manual and forms for the January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010 reporting period are now available. A summary of notable changes to the Calendar Year 2010 CFR Manual as well as State Agency specific special information can be found on pages 2, 3 and 4 of this letter; other essential CFR information follows on the subsequent pages.
Acquisition of CFR Manuals and Forms
CFR manuals and forms are available for download from the NYS Education Department Rate Setting Unit’s homepage at http://www.oms.nysed.gov/rsu/Manuals_Forms/Manuals/CFR.html.
Consolidated Fiscal Reporting System (CFRS) Software
All service providers are expected to use CFRS software approved by the CFR Interagency Committee to create the appropriate CFR submission. Additionally, approved CFRS software can be used to create Consolidated Budget Reports (CBRs) and intra-year State Aid claims (CQRs) for the Calendar Year 2010 reporting period. The New York State Office of Mental Health is the sole vendor for the Calendar Year 2010 reporting period.
Service providers are expected to download the software via the Internet. When the NYS-issued CFRS software is approved, it will be available for download at the CFRS Home Page: https://www.omh.state.ny.us/omhweb/cfrsweb/default.asp. As of this date, approval has not yet been issued for the Calendar Year 2010 reporting period.
For assistance with the New York State software, please refer to the CFRS
Home Page and its Table of Contents or the CFRS Software Online HELP function.
If you need additional assistance, please call the Help Desk at
1-800-HELPNYS (if outside of New York State call 518-474-5554); or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The certifying/funding State Agencies may also be of assistance (see Section 8 of the CFR Manual for the related telephone numbers).
Calendar Year 2010 CFR Due Date(s) and Requests for Extensions
The due date of the Calendar Year 2010 CFR is May 1, 2011. A thirty-day extension will be granted to providers who electronically complete and submit the Pre-Approved 30-Day Extension Request by May 1, 2011. No response to this extension request will be sent; therefore, you should retain a copy for your files prior to submitting the completed form. The pre-approved extension does not apply to the required claiming schedules for all OASAS funded service providers. Please refer to Section 4.0 of the CFR Manual.
The link to the Pre-Approved 30-Day Extension Request form is available from the NYS Education Department at: http://www.oms.nysed.gov/rsu/Manuals_Forms/Manuals/CFRManual/home.html
NOTE: A PAPER COPY OF THE EXTENSION FORM WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED
BY ANY OF THE FUNDING STATE AGENCIES.
Significant Changes to the CFR Manual, Software and/or Forms for Calendar Year 2010:
NOTE: Appendix AA (Audit Guidelines) has been substantially
rewritten in conjunction with the New York State Society of Certified
Public Accountants (NYSSCPA). The audit procedures have been revised.
Practitioners must review these guidelines prior to certification
of the CFR.
Additional schedules are now required to be certified by the CPA: CFR-6, Section 3 and schedules OMH-4 and SED-4 are now included in the certification statement on schedules CFR-ii and CFR-iiA.
Governor David A. Paterson signed into law a bill which changed the name of the New York State Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities (OMRDD) to the New York State Office For People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). The legislation removed the words "Mental Retardation" from the name of the State agency and from State statute and regulations.

Effective with the January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010 reporting period, the Pre-Approved 30-Day Extension Request Form must be electronically completed and submitted using Survey Monkey.

Special Instructions for OPWDD Funded and/or Certified Service Providers
NOTE: Due to recent OPWDD program conversions and changes to the reimbursement methodology for the Community Residence program, service providers should note the following:
- If your agency operated a program that was converted to an HCBS Waiver program or if your Medicaid, Mirrored Services or OPTS funding has increased, please be aware that your CFR reporting requirements may have changed. For example: if your agency filed an Abbreviated CFR prior to the conversion, you will now be required to complete a Full CFR; if your combined Medicaid, Mirrored Services or OPTS funding now exceeds $250,000, you must have your CFR certified by a certified public accountant. Please refer to Section 2 of the CFR Manual to determine the type of CFR your agency is required to submit.
- If your agency operates a Community Residence program, effective January 1, 2010, reimbursement for this program was rolled into the IRA price. Consequently, the Community Residence program must be reported on the CFR using the applicable IRA program code 0231 or 0232. See Appendix G of the CFR Manual for CFR reporting requirements for the IRA program. Contingency contract funds awarded under the
Community Residence program should be reported in the IRA program on CFR-1, line 86 (Prior Period Rate Adjustments).
The following lists the significant changes for OPWDD providers:
1. In Section 40 (Appendix G):
- These programs were added:

Submission of the CFR Document
Service providers are expected to submit their completed Calendar Year 2010 CFR electronically via the Internet. Service providers will access the webpage at http://www.omh.state.ny.us/omhweb/cfrsweb/default.asp to upload their CFR submission. On a daily basis, the information received is distributed to the appropriate State Agency(ies).
Submission of CFR Certification Pages
Please note that OASAS, OMH, OPWDD and SED currently do not accept electronic certifications or signatures for CFR submissions. Therefore, in addition to transmitting the CFR via the Internet, service providers must also submit signed paper copies of the required certification schedules (CFR-i, CFR-ii/CFR-iiA and CFR-iii) and certified financial statements to each funding State Agency by the due date in the CFR Manual. Sending copies of the certification schedules to the County or local DDSO does not fulfill this requirement. Copies of the certification schedules MUST also be sent directly to the state agencies. To determine if Schedules CFR-ii, CFR-iiA, CFR-iii or certified financial statements are required, please refer to Sections 2.0, 6.0, 11.0 and 12.0 of the CFR Manual. Please refer to pages 2.11 and 2.12 of the CFR Manual for information on where to send your agency’s CFR certification pages and certified financial statements. Additionally, the Document Control Number (DCN) of your agency’s Internet submission must match the DCN that appears on the paper certification schedules mailed to each funding State Agency.
Submission of Final State Aid Claim Schedules for OASAS
OASAS expects all service providers to prepare State Aid claim schedules using approved Consolidated Fiscal Reporting System (CFRS) software and to file those schedules electronically via the Internet.
Service providers receiving State Aid through a direct contract with OASAS are required to submit paper copies of CFR schedules CFR-i, CFR-iii and DMH-2 to the Bureau of Financial Management in Albany.
Service providers receiving State Aid through a local contract with a county Local Governmental Unit (LGU) should contact the county for their specific county submission requirements.
LGUs are required to submit paper copies of the CFR-i, CFR-iii and DMH-2 schedules for each service provider funded through a local contract to the Bureau of Financial Management in Albany.
Submission of Final State Aid Claim Schedules for OMH
Service providers receiving State Aid through a direct contract with OMH or through a local contract with a county must submit the required claim schedules via the Internet. Service providers receiving State Aid through a local county contract should contact the county for additional county specific submission requirements. No paper copies are sent to the OMH Contract and Claims Unit in Albany, nor are paper copies sent to the OMH Field Office.
Submission of Final State Aid Claim Schedules for OPWDD
Service providers receiving State Aid through a direct contract with OPWDD are required to submit a paper copy of the entire CFR along with an original signature State Aid Voucher (AC-1171) to the OPWDD Regional Office (NYCRO) or CFR schedules CFR-i, CFR-iii, DMH-2 and DMH-3 to their DDSO, as applicable.
