        General RttT Requirements

1. For 2011-12 submission to DPI…Local DSWs must
   include plans (i.e., a completed row on the spreadsheet)
   for implementing all RttT Required Activities

2. Local RttT detailed budgets (in BUD) must match Local
   DSWs (talk to your Finance Officer!)

3. Complete local DSWs must be submitted to DPI by
   August 3, 2011 (same process as last fall…but much
   more time to develop plans)
