The State Forms Management Program (SFMP) is mandated to ensure consistency, uniformity, and economy of operations for all state agencies. The major program goals are to develop and manage effective forms management systems by standardizing forms management procedures that improve the statewide operations of a centralized program.
Forms Management Center
The Forms Management Center (FMC) was established to design, implement and maintain the SFMP for all state agencies. FMC maintains a central cross index of public-use forms to facilitate the standardization of forms, to eliminate redundant forms, and to provide a central source of information.
State Standard (STD.) Forms
Standard (STD.) forms are used statewide for various program purposes. The FMC studies, develops, coordinates and initiates these forms of interagency and common administrative usage, and maintains on-going partnerships with state agencies to keep STD. forms updated according to state laws and mandates.
Current versions of these STD. forms are available on the “Forms Search” webpage.
Departmental Forms Management Representatives
Each state agency appoints a Departmental Forms Management Representative (FMR) to implement a forms management program within their agency. The FMR is the primary contact between the agency and the FMC and is responsible for providing necessary reports and disseminating information regarding the SFMP.
FMR resources are available on the "Department Forms Management Program Information" webpage
Departmental Forms Inventory (DFI)
In order to effectively manage the state’s forms, the FMC collects and reviews a forms inventory of every state agency. Agencies are required to submit a Departmental Forms Inventory (DFI) of public-use forms. Agencies must review its form inventory to ensure forms are compliant with state standards, the forms are neccessary and non-duplicative, and certify them for continued usage. Each state agency reviews and submits this inventory on a triennial basis.
