FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

REPORTING OF REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES

 

††††††† The Regional Office of Education #11 offset revenues and expenditures of $22,265 within the System of Support fund.

 

††††††† Regional Offices of Education are required to maintain accounting records in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.Generally accepted accounting principles require reporting of revenues and expenditures in gross amounts, not net of reimbursements (Finding 04-1, page 12).

 

††††††† The Regional Office of Education #11 accepted the recommendation to post all revenue in revenue accounts and all expenditures in expenditure accounts in gross amounts as required by generally accepted accounting principles.

 

 

INADEQUATE MONITORING OF SUB-RECIPIENTS

 

††††††† The Regional Office of Education #11 did not adequately monitor sub-recipients.The Regional Office conducted some programmatic monitoring of sub-recipients, but did not obtain and review copies of the audit reports for the sub-recipients of the Standards Aligned Classroom-Statewide Professional Development Program.

 

††††††† The Regional Office of Education #11, as a pass-through entity, is required to monitor the activities of a nonfederal entity that expends federal awards received from the Regional Office of Education.Monitoring of sub-recipients should include a review of the sub-recipientsí annual audits to ensure that the sub-recipientsí systems of internal controls over programs are adequate.The pass-through entity should ensure sub-recipients take timely and appropriate corrective action on all audit findings (Finding 04-2, page 13).

 

†††††††† The Regional Office of Education #11 accepted the recommendation to obtain copies of annual audit reports for all sub-recipients, review them for findings related to compliance with laws, regulations, and grant contract provisions, and take appropriate actions when required.
