DiNapoli’s Office Completes Local Government Audit

State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed the audit: Town of Rotterdam – Internal Controls Over Selected Financial Activities.

“My office’s audits of local governments improve their financial management practices,” DiNapoli said. “These audits are tools for local officials to make sure proper policies and procedures are in place to protect taxpayer dollars and provide the best possible service these taxpayer dollars can deliver.”

Town of Rotterdam – Internal Controls Over Selected Financial Activities
Internal controls over purchasing and information technology were not appropriately designed and operating effectively because the board did not provide sufficient oversight over the purchasing process, and the board and town officials did not establish adequate policies and procedures to address the possible loss or misuse of the town’s information technology (IT) system and computerized data. In addition, auditors reviewed internal controls over the police payroll and found them to be appropriately designed and operating effectively. For a copy of the audit, click here.
