Comptroller DiNapoli Releases School Audits

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed the audit of the Hannibal 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.”

Hannibal Central School District - Internal Controls Over Purchasing and Fuel Inventories (Oswego County)
District officials did not seek competitive bids, as required, for two of 10 purchases and did not obtain the required number of written or verbal quotes for five of 21 purchases. The district also paid four of seven professional service providers without soliciting competition. Finally, district officials should improve controls over gasoline and diesel fuel inventory. The district could not account for 3,123 gallons of fuel valued at $6,739 because the district has not established policies and procedures to effectively control these inventories.
