Comptroller DiNapoli Completes School Audit


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

Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District - Custodial Staffing Levels and Access Rights (Westchester County)
District officials have not implemented adequate performance measures to efficiently manage staffing levels at its buildings and grounds department. If district officials used meaningful performance measures to determine the most efficient way to use custodial staff resources, they could eliminate the need for an outside contractor and save taxpayers up to $344,000 annually. In addition, the treasurer and a payroll clerk were allowed greater access rights to the financial system than is required.
