Accountability & Transparency

To qualify for the Accountability & Transparency portion of the EVIP, eligible local units must:

  • Certify to the Michigan Department of Treasury (using form #4886) that by October 1, 2011 they have produced and made readily available to the public, a citizen’s guide and a performance dashboard of their local finances, including a recognition of their unfunded liabilities.
  • Submit a copy of their citizen’s guide and performance dashboard to the Michigan Department of Treasury.

Below are various templates that local units can use to assist them in preparing their citizen’s guide and dashboard.  Local units do not have to use these templates.  The templates are available to assist a local unit if it so chooses.  Local units have the latitude to create the required guide and dashboard in a manner best suited for the local unit.
