Fiscal Health Monitoring System
Your annual reporting in accordance with Section 7-406(c)b of the General Statutes is moving to the Office of Policy and Management’s new Fiscal Health Monitoring System (FHMS). Reporting under this new platform will be 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 that will be provided to each municipality at a later date.
The go-live date of the new platform is targeted for the latter part of April 2021. Ample time with specific due dates will be provided to you accordingly for completion of your annual filings once the FHMS training is made available.
As we begin to roll out details of the new platform and the training materials to assist you in your filings, we will be providing you with further information. We are also establishing a webpage that will frequently be updated on matters related to the FHMS and AFDR.
