The General Accounting Office (GAO) will periodically issue Technical Bulletins (TB's) to all State Agencies. These Technical Bulletins will be the mechanism used by the GAO to document official Statewide policies and procedures. The Technical Bulletins will be codified into the appropriate manual or handbook format when applicable. In general, the following rules and regulations take precedence: (refer to Technical Bulletin 1995-01):
State constitution, statutes, laws and administrative code;
Federal constitution, laws, rules and regulations;
The most recent technical bulletin released.
In all cases of a conflict between a Technical Bulletin and other laws, rules and regulations, contact the GAO liaison assigned to the Agency. For a listing of the GAO liaisons, click here
The GAO uses a year and a sequential number convention to identify each bulletin. Example: 2010-03 is the third bulletin issued in 2010.
