New York State Comptroller Fiscal Stress Monitoring System
This reporting system provides an early warning of fiscal stress to local governments.It provides feedback to local leaders, State officials and taxpayers about fiscal stress conditions to help with prioritization of community needs and managing tough tradeoff decisions.
There are two main components of the System:
- Financial indicators
- Environmental indicators
Entities are scored into either one of three fiscal stress levels (Significant, Moderate, or Susceptible to Fiscal Stress) or “no designation” if the score does not meet the level of stress.
The scoring is done once a year after the entity annual financial report has been submitted and reviewed.
