FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

CONTROLS OVER COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS AND REGULATIONS

 

††††† The Illinois School Code (105 ILCS 5/3-14.11) requires the Regional Superintendent to examine at least once each year all books, accounts and vouchers of every school treasurer in her educational service region, and if she finds any irregularities in them, to report them at once, as directed by the School Code.

 

The Regional Office did not examine at least once each year all books, accounts, and vouchers of every school treasurer in the educational service region.Regional Office officials noted they believe the mandate is outdated and that they are satisfying the intent of the statute by other reviews they undertake.This mandate has existed in its current form since at least 1953.(Finding 05-1, pages 12-13)

 

The Regional Office accepted the recommendation, noting it will seek a legislative solution to this and other obsolete passages.

 

 

DEPOSIT OF RECEIPTS

 

Sound internal controls over cash receipts require that receipts be promptly deposited in the bank.For the Local ROE Funds, 8 of 20 (40%) deposit batches representing receipt of GED fees and workshop fees were not deposited timely from receipt date; $4,683 was deposited more than 30 days after the receipt date.(Finding 05-2, pages 14-15)

 

According to ROE officials, deposit batches cited in this exception are composed of individually small receipt amounts and are mostly related to workshop fees, which are handled differently due to the timing of payments and actual workshop dates.

 

The Regional Office accepted the recommendation, noting it will adopt a policy which identifies amounts and the timeframe for deposit of those amounts.
