Purpose of Audit

The purpose of our audit was to evaluate the effectiveness of the District’s claims auditing procedures for the period July 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015.

Background

The Greenwich Central School District is located in the Towns of Argyle, Cambridge, Easton, Fort Edward, Greenwich, Hebron, Jackson and Salem in Washington County. The District, which operates three schools with approximately 1,100 students, is governed by an elected five-member Board of Education. Budgeted appropriations for the 2015-16 fiscal year total approximately $19.3 million.

Key Finding

  • The claims auditor did not consistently audit all claims related to the capital fund prior to payment.

Key Recommendation

  • The Board should ensure that the claims auditor audits all claims prior to payment, unless they are statutorily exempt.
