RE: Client Funds


This Alert is to remind all DMR Public and Private providers, agency personnel and others who directly assist DMR clients, of your very important responsibility to be attentive to the need to oversee and protect private funds being held for these individuals.

Every agency should have clearly defined standards for monitoring these funds and should be regularly checking to ensure that these standards are being followed.
