Village of Granville – Financial Management System (2011M-214)

Released: January 20, 2012 -- [read complete report - pdf]

Purpose of Audit

The purpose of our audit was to determine if the Village was operating efficiently and protecting assets from loss or misuse for the period June 1, 2010 to May 31, 2011.


The Village of Granville is located in Washington County. The elected Mayor and Board of Trustees are responsible for the overall management of the Village's adopted budget, which totals approximately $2.2 million for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2012.

Key Findings

  • The Village's financial management system presents certain risks; for example, the system does not allow the users to establish their own unique user ID's to access the system, and some of the financial reports generated by the system are not accurate.

Key Recommendations

  • Ensure that users of the financial management software have their own unique user ID's and passwords which they are able to change.
  • Ensure that the balances in all accounts in the financial management system are correct.
