FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

 

 

NONCOMPLIANCE WITH ADMINISTRATIVE CODE

†††††

†††††††† The Illinois Administrative Code (23 Ill. Adm. Code 110.115) requires that fees for conferences, workshops, materials and other costs charged for discretionary activities not required by law or rule are to be determined on a cost-recovery basis.Excess funds resulting from registrations or requests for materials/ services beyond the anticipated cost-recovery basis shall be deposited in an enterprise fund to be used solely to reduce the cost of similar items or to cover costs incurred due to less-than-anticipated registrations or requests for materials/services.

 

†††††† The Regional Office of Education #31ís Workshop Fund had a fund balance of $530,941 and $486,375 as of June 30, 2004 and 2003, respectively.Total expenditures for fiscal year 2004 and 2003 amounted to $19,794 and $14,662, respectively.The excess funds were not deposited in an enterprise fund but were maintained in the special revenue fund.According to Regional Office management, the excess funds were not used to reduce the cost of future workshops due to an uncertainty about funding for these activities on a year-to-year basis.Regional Office management also stated they were unaware of the requirement to deposit the excess fees in an enterprise fund. (04-1, pages 12-13)

 

†††††† The Regional Office of Education #31 accepted the recommendation to deposit excess funds in an enterprise fund, which will be created for use in fiscal year 2005.

 

 

 

 

AUDITORSí OPINION
