Section II-C Costs Allowable with Prior Federal Approval

The following costs are allowable for state and federal financial participation (SFFP) only when written approval has been granted by the appropriate agency of the state or federal government before the incursion of the costs.

1. Costs Requiring Prior Approval of the Federal Government, Through the Division of Social Services:

Acquisitions by central county data processing facilities of data processing equipment and services from commercial sources that are acquired primarily to support public assistance programs are subject to the prior written DIRM and federal approval requirements. Data processing equipment and services are considered to be primarily acquired to support public assistance programs when these programs may reasonably be expected to either be billed for more than fifty percent (50%) of the total charges made to all users of data processing equipment and services during the time period covered by the service agreement or directly charged for the total cost of the purchase or lease of data processing equipment or services (45 CFR 95.605).
