C R <br /> S Inc. Cost Recovery Systems, Inc. <br /> May 3,2019 <br /> Ms. Deborah Cullen <br /> Finance Director <br /> City of Rancho Palos Verdes <br /> 30940 Hawthorne Blvd. <br /> Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275 <br /> Dear Deborah, <br /> Thank you for giving Cost Recovery Systems(CRS)the opportunity to help prepare,file,and support <br /> your agency's State Mandated Reimbursement Claims. Attached is our proposal for continuation of our <br /> State Mandated Reimbursement Claiming Services for FY 2019-20. <br /> Last year,with the assistance of two CRS clients(the Cities of Claremont and South Lake Tahoe),we <br /> filed and had two new Test Claims approved by the State. This allows all State agencies to file for: <br /> U VISA 918 Forms, Victims of Crime: Nonimmigrant Status Submission—Requires law <br /> enforcement agencies to review and complete Federal I-918 forms whenever requested by victims of <br /> crime enabling them to petition for temporary immigration benefits if it is deemed that their <br /> assistance would be helpful in the investigation or prosecution of that criminal activity. <br /> Mental Health and Crisis Intervention Training for Field Officers—Requires all Police Field <br /> Training Officers to attend a new 8-hour training session to address techniques for dealing with <br /> mentally ill individuals. <br /> In addition,the Stormwater Mandates are still going through litigation and we are hopeful that these new <br /> Test Claims will also be approved in the coming year.Note that not all jurisdictions are impacted by the <br /> Stormwater mandates as each region has its unique requirements. <br /> The State Controller's Office continues to increase its documentation requirements and audits of State <br /> Mandate Claims. In the past,audits were rare; however now they are relatively commonplace. Incorrect <br /> Reduction Claims or appeals are often required after the audit if there are disagreements over the <br /> reductions. <br /> By renewing your contract with CRS,you will assure project continuity and increase the chances of <br /> successful audit resolution. Please sign and send back a copy of the attached"Proposed Scope of Work" <br /> as soon as possible. Feel free to contact me at(916)939-7901 if you have any questions or suggestions <br /> on how CRS's products and services can be more useful to you and your staff. <br /> We look forward to continuing to work with you on this project. <br /> Sincerely, <br /> af‘ gi <br /> Annette S.
