BVP FAQs > Answers

 What responsibilities will the CEO have regarding the control and disbursement of federally-provided matching funds?

  • Only the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a jurisdiction or an authorized designee, who is an employee of the jurisdiction, may request funds from the Office of Justice Programs on behalf of the participating law enforcement agencies. Payments may be requested only after vests have been purchased and delivered. CEOs or the authorized designee are responsible for ensuring that no law enforcement agency within their jurisdiction requests or receives BVP payments that exceed 50 percent of the cost of each vest purchased.
