5. Would testing supplies be considered an operational expenditure? How do we estimate calculations, such as for testing where we do not know the exact need or cost of tests?

- Yes, this could be a valid operational cost, although all operational expenditures are subject to review from the Office of Recovery, SPARK Committee and State Finance Council to determine eligibility. While it may difficult to estimate the need, agencies can contact the Division of Budget for assistance. Some PPE and testing may be eligible under FEMA dollars, but there are different guidelines and regulations that we are currently working through to understand.
