Upon receipt of a letter from the State Controller’s Office (SCO) certifying that the audit report conforms to the reporting standards contained in the audit guide, an LEA has 30 days in which to request a summary review from EAAP. The filing of a waiver request with a County Office of Education or the State Board does not extend or alter this deadline.

Requests may be made by email (Filing Email: filing@eaap.ca.gov) as well as mail, and an LEA may choose to file a request for formal appeal without first requesting a summary review. Note that an emailed request may be the most reliable way to ensure that the deadline is met.
