DiNapoli's Office Completes School Audit

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed the audit of the Miller Place Union Free 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.”

Miller Place Union Free School District - Internal Controls Over Retirement Reporting and Cash Disbursements (Suffolk County)
District officials did not implement formal procedures for retirement reporting. Retirement reports prepared by a payroll clerk that were submitted to NYSLRS were not reviewed for accuracy or approved by an appropriate official. As a result, five employees improperly received service credit for 534.3 days they did not earn. Auditors notified NYSLRS of this misreporting so that corrective action can be initiated.
