Welcome to the State of California Department of Finance

Recognized Obligation Payments Schedule (ROPS)

Each successor agency is responsible for drafting a ROPS delineating the enforceable obligations of the former RDA and their source of payment every six months.  ROPS are subject to the approval of the local oversight board.

Redevelopment Agency Dissolution Web Application


Finance will continue to utilize our web-based application known as Redevelopment Agency Dissolution Web Application or RAD App for the ROPS submission process.  If you should need assistance with the RAD App, please direct any questions to the Redevelopment Inbox: RedevelopmentAdministration@dof.ca.gov and include the Successor Agency Name - RAD App Question in the subject line.

ROPS Format Update

Pursuant to Health and Safety Code section 34177 (m), the successor agency shall complete the Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule (ROPS) in the manner provided for by Finance. Successor agencies were previously allowed to download the Excel ROPS workbook from the Redevelopment Agency Dissolution Web Application (RAD App) either in Excel 2007-2013 format (XLSX) or Excel 1997-2004 format (XLS). Beginning January 1, 2016, the RAD App will only accept the XLSX format.
