Audits of Local Governments and School Districts

Report Highlights

Port Jefferson Union Free School District - Claims Processing (2018M-055)

Released: August 17, 2018 -- [read complete report - pdf]

Audit Objective

Determine whether the Board had established and properly implemented an adequate system to audit vouchers prior to payment.

Noteworthy Achievements

  • We reviewed 60 general fund claims totaling $298,123 and 10 extra-classroom activity claims totaling $2,705 to determine whether the claims audit process in place had verified they were properly supported, audited and approved before payment. We found the claims audit process was adequately designed and that it had been properly implemented.

Because District officials established and implemented a well-designed system for processing claims, there were no recommendations as a result of this audit.

District officials agreed with our report.
