State-Mandated Programs

Welcome to the California State Controller’s Office web pages for State-Mandated Programs. The Controller’s Office annually receives, reviews, and audits Mandated Cost claims. We are also involved in reviewing Parameters and Guidelines, developing reimbursement forms, and issuing Claiming Instructions for each new and amended mandated program. This site will help you find information applicable to the Mandated Cost process.
