Flex Plan Withholding for 10 & 11 Month Employees

February 24, 2017

BCPS is implementing a change in our Flex (Cafeteria) Plan withholdings for the ‘17/’18 school year. This is our employee optional benefit that consists of pre-tax deductions for medical and/or dependent care coverage. In the past the deductions have been spread over a 10 month period. Due to the annual start and end period of the plan this method of withholding has been confusing. Nine deductions for this benefit have been withheld in one school year and the tenth in the following year. For example, an annual election would result in withholdings from September – May (nine) of one school year and August (tenth) of the following school year. In order to eliminate the confusion for all parties involved, we will be spreading the annual election over a nine month period (September – May). This will result in deductions for the plan year all within the same school year, rather than crossing years.

If there are any questions, comments or concerns do not hesitate to contact the Finance Department for assistance.

Reimbursements

March 16, 2015

During our recent financial monitoring visit from DPI, a very important matter was brought to our attention in regards to meal reimbursements.  When state, federal or grant funds are being utilized to reimburse for meals, the original itemized receipt should be submitted as proof for reimbursement.  Without a detailed receipt, we have no proof that what is being reimbursed truly qualifies as a legitimate expenditure.  For instance, a receipt from a restaurant that simply has a total could contain items not reimbursable, such as alcohol.  State or federal auditors could require us to repay any reimbursements that do not detail what the receipt is for.

Effective immediately, we will require all submissions for meals/food reimbursements to be an original, itemized/detailed receipt.  If an original detailed receipt is not included with the request for reimbursement, it will be denied.  Photocopies of receipts is not acceptable.

Your cooperation and attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Keith Lawson, Finance Officer
