State Comptroller DiNapoli Releases School District Audits

February 2, 2022

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced the following audits were issued.

Arkport Central School District – Network Access Controls (Steuben County)

District officials did not ensure that network access controls were secure and did not establish written policies or procedures to add or disable user accounts and permissions. The district had 92 unneeded network user accounts and nine user accounts with unnecessary administrative permissions. In addition, sensitive IT control weaknesses were communicated confidentially to officials.

Nyack Union Free School District – Network User Accounts (Rockland County)

District officials did not ensure that network user accounts were adequately managed and monitored. Officials did not monitor compliance with the computer acceptable use policy or maintain a current authorized user list.

Sullivan County Board of Cooperative Educational Services (2021M-171)

BOCES officials did not always make appropriate and accurate employee separation payments. Officials did not adhere to contract terms for separation payments or obtain Board of Education approval to waive certain employment terms. As a result, seven of the 21 separation payments we reviewed that total $66,169 were inappropriate or inaccurate.
