Request for Review:

Requests for State Controller review of a Comprehensive Fiscal Analysis (CFA) filed pursuant to Government Code §56833.3 must be made in writing not later than 30 calendar days from the date notice is published that the CFA is available for public review. Requests shall specify in writing the elements of the CFA the Controller is requested to review and the reasons the Controller is requested to review them.

Persons requesting the review shall be responsible for costs incurred in obtaining the review and shall deposit with the Executive Officer, at the time the request is filed and before it is found to be valid, the amount estimated by the Executive Officer as necessary to cover the costs of the State Controller's review.

Within 30 days of issuance of the State Controller's report, the Executive Officer shall refund any amount of the deposit remaining after costs have been paid. In the event the amount to be paid exceeds the deposit, the requesting party shall be liable for the balance due.
