State Comptroller DiNapoli Releases School District Audit

April 23, 2021

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced the following school district audit was issued.

Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District – Fuel Purchasing (Seneca County and Wayne County)

During the 30-month audit period, auditors found the district could have reduced its fuel expenditures by at least $124,428. The savings would have covered the district’s average gasoline and diesel fuel purchases for almost 11 months. Auditors determined the district could have saved at least $49,448 by using the Office of General Services contract price. In addition, officials should not have paid $74,980 to a local gas station. The erroneous payments comprised $57,415 in taxes and $17,565 in finance charges and other fees.
