Oregon Department of
Oregon Audit agrees
with the Ballot 2014.02 Inadequate Assessment. We are finding instances where
the registrant has very poor records but we can tell that some operations
occurred in jurisdictions that were not included on the renewal application. If
the registrant had completed the renewal correctly, those jurisdictions would
also have received fees from an Inadequate Records assessment. There shouldn't
be an incentive to leave jurisdictions off of the renewal application in order
to avoid an additional assessment for poor recordkeeping.

A comment to consider
when reviewing this proposal. Adding distance will generate registration fees
for the unreported jurisdiction reducing the registration fees for all
jurisdictions with reported distance. This likely will lower registration fees
for all reported jurisdictions. Jurisdictions will gain the assessment fee, the
new registration fees and assessment may be less than the original registration
fees paid. Discussion is needed on how the distance is determined for the
unreported jurisdiction when distance records do not exist. Also may want to consider
if there may be additional programming requirements and resources needed for
any possible system changes. Recommend that we clarify if this is only
applicable after FRP and how to handle before FRP.
