The Dutchess County Comptroller’s Office has released their audit report of the 2021 Maintenance in Lieu of Rent (MLR), as well as their report of the 2021 Indirect Cost Allocation Plan (ICAP). The MLR is produced annually by the Department of Public Works, providing occupancy related costs for the maintenance of County owned buildings. The information provided in the MLR allowed the Comptroller’s Office to verify the information used in preparation of the ICAP, which is used by the Department of Community and Family Services (DCFS) to make a claim for federal reimbursement of indirect costs associated with federal grant programs the County participates in.

“Our office is proud to be play such an important role in bringing the County additional revenue each year,” said Comptroller Lois. “We will continue to look for additional indirect costs that can be reimbursed annually.”

The MLR report concluded that a total of $7.75 million dollars was identified as maintenance in lieu costs, and a total of $1.317 million was billed, while the ICAP was able to anticipate $1,654,875 in revenue for 2022.
