Scope and Content
Administrative correspondence of the Texas Office of Financial Accountability (OFA) documents how the OFA promoted open and accountable government as well as problems encountered during the course of these duties. Types of records include correspondence and accompanying documents such as reports, program summaries, executive summaries, memorandums, agenda, talking points, budgets, forms, presentations, white papers, project time lines, and news clippings. Records date 2009-2014, undated. Paper records date 2009-2011, and undated, and electronic records date 2010-2014. Subjects include proposed uses of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds, questions and answers about the use of the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund for education, impacts of federal economic stimulus provisions on Texas state government programs, rules and laws dealing with ARRA’s effect on Texas, accountability and reporting issues, vendor and tool proposals, perspectives on U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett’s amendment to the EduJobs Bill and its effect on the state, and the working group’s relationship with the House Select Committee on Federal Economic Stabilization Funding and its chairman Senator Jim Dunnam. Paper records in this series document mostly internal duties of the office while electronic records document mostly external duties of the office. Paper records largely deal with ARRA functions while electronic records reflect the OFA’s shift from monitoring ARRA compliance to assisting, improving and auditing state projects that use state or federal funds.
