Comptroller DiNapoli Releases School District Audits

August 21, 2019

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced the following school district audits have been issued.

Elmira Heights Central School District – Nonresident Tuition (2019M-120)

Although district officials billed most nonresident tuition accurately and timely, they did not timely bill for nonresident students placed in the district.

Hyde Park Central School District – Fixed Assets (2019M-103)

The district does not have a comprehensive policy for identifying and recording fixed assets. Auditors found that district officials improperly appointed the purchasing agent as the property control manager, resulting in an inadequate segregation of duties.

North Bellmore Union Free School District – Procurement of Professional Services (2019M-95)

The board did not comply with the law and use a competitive request for proposal (RFP) process when contracting for the annual audit. Auditors also found that district officials did not always comply with district policy to procure professional services. In addition, a review of procedures district officials used to select 17 professional service providers showed that they did not seek competition when selecting six service providers, who were paid a total of $437,732 during the audit period.
