New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced the following school district audits were issued.
The board and district officials did not adequately safeguard online banking transactions. Officials did not adopt a comprehensive online banking policy. Officials also did not monitor online banking user compliance with the district’s acceptable computer use policy. As a result, five of the six online banking users were allowed to access nonbusiness websites prohibited by the policy. In addition, information technology security (IT) awareness training to all online banking users was not provided. Sensitive IT control weaknesses were communicated confidentially to officials.
Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District – Extra-Classroom Activity Funds and Admissions (Albany County and Greene County)
Extra-classroom activity and event admission funds were not adequately safeguarded or properly accounted for. District officials did not provide adequate oversight of extra-classroom activity and admission event collections. Club collections and disbursements and sporting event admission records lacked adequate supporting documentation and reconciliations were not performed. District officials conducted four extra-classroom activity audits that identified poor collection controls. However, they did not implement the faculty auditor’s recommendations.
