DiNapoli’s Office Completes a School Audit and a Budget Review

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed an audit of Pembroke Central School District.

“My office’s audits of school districts and BOCES help schools improve their financial management practices,” DiNapoli said. “These audits are tools for schools to make sure proper policies and procedures are in place to protect taxpayer dollars and provide students with the best possible education.”

Pembroke Central School District – Internal Controls Over Cash Receipts (Genesee County)
Audits found internal controls over district cash receipts were not appropriately designed or operating effectively. The district did not adopt written policies governing cash receipts, provide job descriptions to employees or segregate critical duties. As a result, the treasurer did not make deposits intact or in a timely manner. Furthermore, employees assigned to audit extra classroom activities were not provided guidance on their duties and more than $2,600 in extra classroom activity funds was unaccounted for, or may have been stolen or used for other than appropriate district purposes.

DiNapoli’s office also completed a budget review of the Fabius-Pompey Central School District in Onondaga County.

If you have any questions or would like a comment from the Comptroller’s office regarding the audit, please call the Press Office at 518-474-4015.
