Citizen Support Organizations Reports
Reporting Requirements for Citizen Support Organizations

On June 13, 2014, Section 20.058 Florida Statutes, was enacted, creating new annual reporting and transparency requirements for all citizen support organizations (CSO) and direct support organizations, agency reporting requirements and provide for the review of the statutes authorizing the organizations by October 1, 2019.

Section 112.3251 Florida Statutes requires each CSO to adopt its own Code of Ethics. The code must address specific standards of conduct and disclosure by CSO board members, officers and employees.

By August 15 each year, the Department of Environmental Protection is required to provide a report to the Governor, President of the Senate, Speaker of the House and Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability that includes the required recommendation and supporting rationale to continue, terminate or modify the agency’s association with each of the Department’s 94 CSOs.

View the Department’s 2014 Annual Report of Citizen Support Organizations. Below is a list of CSOs which support Florida’s state parks and coastal and aquatic areas. Each report include an overview of the organization, a brief description of the results obtained by the organization and the organization’s plans for the next three fiscal years. These documents also include the Code of Ethics required by Section 112.3251 Florida Statutes and the most recent IRS Form 990, Form 990-EZ or Form 990-N/Annual Financial Statement.

These documents will be updated annually.
