FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

EXPENDITURES WERE NOT RECORDED TO THE PROPER GENERAL LEDGER ACCOUNTS

The Regional Office of Education #12ís general ledger for the Technology-Learning Technology Centers contained $30,444 of expenditures that were not recorded in the proper general ledger accounts.

Expenditures for grant programs should be made for allowable costs and should be recorded in the proper object code cells on the expenditure reports. (Finding 03-01, page 13-14)

The Regional Office of Education #12 responded that the expenditures were inadvertently coded to the incorrect accounts. Upon learning of the finding, the Regional Office provided an inservice for all bookkeepers of the Regional Office of Education #12.

AUDITORSí OPINION

Our auditors state the Regional Office of Education # 12ís financial statements as of June 30, 2003 are fairly presented in all material respects.
