To facilitate communications planning, municipalities are required to load new gas tax projects into the online reporting module once identified in your approved municipal budget. This can be done by March 31st, at the same time as you are doing last year’s reporting.
Financial reporting is due by March 31 each year and municipalities can submit this through the secure section of the AMO website. Read our instruction manual
to learn how to accurately complete annual reporting.
Municipal audits are not required under the federal Gas Tax Fund under a new risk based approach. Instead, AMO will be randomly auditing 10% of municipalities on an annual basis to ensure compliance.
Municipalities will have to outline the policies and procedures that are in place within the organization to ensure compliance with the Agreement. Also, Treasurers will be the Gas Tax Contact for every municipality, no exception, to ensure that risk is reduced.
Municipalities are required to report on project outcomes. The focus of the program has been expanded to look at broader community benefits and the benefits of long-term predictable funding.
Measurements and indicators will be developed by the Oversight Committee in 2014 in consultation with municipalities. Where possible, measurements will reflect existing information already collected or readily available to municipalities. This information will be collected through the online reporting module.
