We have been advised that agencies should submit their requests for approval to Mr. Ken Tucker, Deputy Attorney General, Department of Legal Affairs, The Capitol, Tallahassee 32301. Evidence of approval must be submitted as supporting documentation on the initial payment from current year funds regardless of whether it is a new agreement or a continuation of an existing contract.
