The Safety Programs Group is responsible for programs that make New York State's roadways safer for all highway users, young and old. The staff implements and coordinates new programs and is also responsible for oversight of ongoing safety activities. The staff oversee the highway safety programs in the state: STOP-DWI, occupant restraint, pedestrian and wheel sport safety, all areas of safe driver behavior, police traffic enforcement and traffic records management. Program Representative staff support local government officials, community groups and safety organizations with advice and support in creating highway safety programs and projects as well as with grant development and administration. The Representatives serve the following counties:
The Fiscal Group handles the processing of grant submissions and vouchers. Calls appropriate for this group include questions about vouchers, claims, budget certificates and contracts.
Grant Systems Support is responsible for the transition from our current grants management system, eGrants, into the Statewide Grants Gateway, including prequalification of GTSC's Not-For-Profit organizations. We also process grant submissions, provide Single Audit information for federal award recipients, respond to annual audit requests of grantee disbursements, add new grantees to the Statewide Vendor File and serve as liaison between the NYS Division of the Treasury and grantees, replacing lost or destroyed reimbursements. We coordinate with Statewide Financial System and Grants Gateway staff to customize the systems to meet federal reporting requirements, report program data to federal oversight agencies and reconcile State agency expenditures.
