LPMF Replacement Spreadsheets

There is a proposal to discontinue the use of the Local Personnel Master File used by counties to allocate agency management, support, and overhead (AMSO) for contracts. This proposal is contingent on counties who still use LPMF successfully implementing their own local system for allocating AMSO.

As an alternative to LPMF, some counties have developed simple spreadsheets to perform this allocation and have agreed to share these with other counties. Here are links to three examples of allocation spreadsheets used by counties. If there are any questions regarding the spreadsheets, the contact person for each example is listed within the spreadsheet under the contact tab.
