Countywide Oversight Boards

Pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 34179 (j), on and after July 1, 2018 in each county where more than one oversight board was created, there shall be only one Countywide Oversight Board (Countywide OB).  The Countywide OB shall be staffed by the County Auditor-Controller (CAC), by another county entity selected by the CAC, or by a city within the county that the CAC may select after consulting with Finance.


As of July 1, 2018, Finance can only recognize newly-created Countywide OBs. The actions of the Successor Agency’s ROPS or other OB required approved actions cannot be submitted without the Countywide OB’s approval. In order to update our records, we are asking the CAC to inform Finance, prior to July 1, 2018 of the following:

  • The newly-created Countywide OB
  • Its members
  • The main contacts of the OB.

Please refer to the following form and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

Please forward any questions you have to:

    Organizational Change

    Effective July 1, 2016, the Local Government Unit within the California State Department of Finance (Finance) will merge with Finance's Office of State Audits and Evaluations. This is an organizational change only and will not impact Finance's statutory duties in carrying out the redevelopment agency (RDA) dissolution statutes. All previously established processes, RDA webpage, and RAD App will remain unchanged.
