Reduction Request Process
If a recalculation in current dollars shows a decrease, reductions require prior written authorization from the FDEP Tallahassee office (the DEP Secretary or their designee). A request to the FR section must be made to begin the process to decrease the FA instrument.
Neither a cost estimate nor District approval is sufficient authorization to reduce an FA instrument.
