Current law authorizes the Department of Administration to set off monies the State of Kansas owes vendors and individuals against debts those entities owe to the State of Kansas and eligible participating entities. The Setoff Program participating entities include state of Kansas agencies, municipalities, USDs, and district courts. The Setoff Program assists the participating entities in collection of delinquent accounts. The participating entities submit delinquent accounts to the Setoff Program and those accounts are matched to payments made by the State of Kansas including state payroll, state income tax refunds, state miscellaneous payments, certain KPERS payments and unclaimed property.
(*Note: The numbers reflect the Annual Total Setoff Gross Collections collected through the debt setoff program.)
In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years. Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized. This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes. Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter. This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
