DiNapoli's Office Completes School Audit

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

“My office’s audits of school districts, charter schools 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.”

Union-Endicott Central School DistrictClaims Auditor and Internal Controls Over Cash from Vending Machine Sales (Broome and Tioga counties)
The district paid the Broome-Tioga Board of Cooperative Education Services approximately $12.6 million for various services. The district also contracted with BOCES for management support services including several business related services, one of which was claims auditing. This arrangement is not appropriate because the district’s claims auditor reviews payments to BOCES, who is the claims auditor’s employer. In addition, the director of the district’s food service program did not establish adequate procedures to ensure that all cash received from vending machine sales was accounted for.
