Fiscal Health Monitoring System

Your annual reporting in accordance with Section 7-406(c)b of the General Statutes has moved to the new Fiscal Health Monitoring System (FHMS). Reporting under this new platform is based upon a hybrid approach whereby the mapping of your municipality’s financial data will be significantly reduced as compared to prior years that required municipalities to map/cross-walk their complete general ledger accounts to the Uniform Chart of Accounts (UCOA). Reporting will instead be based primarily upon financial data that is consistent with the format of your audited financial statements. The Annual Financial Data Report (AFDR) is to be completed on an annual basis using the sign-in credentials to FHMS.
 
FHMS is now available for you to access and begin to complete your annual filings. We will ensure that ample time is provided to you to complete your submissions.

 

Your annual filings include:
  • The Appointment of Auditor Notification
  • Submission of the Adopted Budget and Summary Data
  • Completion of the Annual Financial Data Report
  • Audit Report Extension Requests (if applicable)
  • Single Audit Exemption Notifications (if applicable)
Job aids and demonstration videos are provided below.
