August 7, 2020 Update
Seward County’s consultants, Iparametrics met with county staff on August 5, 2020 to discuss logistics and get staff input on preliminary recommendations for the direct spending plan prior to the Board of County Commissioner’s meeting which will occur on August 10 at 5:30 p.m.
At that time, the consultants will present their recommendations for the direct spending plan and procedures for reimbursement of the CRF funds.
On August 6, 2020, Iparametrics met via zoom meeting with local non-profits and political subdivisions in order to discuss how reimbursements for Covid related expenses can be applied for through a web-based portal.
All non-profits and political subdivisions seeking reimbursement will need to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and Authorization for Direct Payment Form.
Those executed forms will need to be emailed to the county’s consultants Alexandria Harvey by emailing them to Alexandria.Harvey@metriceng.com
The consultants will assign an Organization ID for each entity once they have the Authorization for Direct Payment Form. The Consultants will communicate the ID to the entity, so the reimbursement requests can begin to be inputted by the entity.
It is understood that the MOU may not be able to be returned immediately as it will likely have to be approved the relevant governing body.
However, no payments will be made for reimbursements until an MOU is in place. The MOU and the Authorization for Direct Payment Form can be found by going to http://www.sewardcountyks.org/450/MOU-and-Authorization-for-Direct-Payment
Further, the reimbursement will need to be submitted by Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 5:00 pm.
After that is done, reimbursement can be applied for through the portal.
The web portal will be made available in the near future.
