Montrose Veterans Home: Vendor Interest Payments (Follow-Up Report)

The Department of Health operates the New York State Veterans’ Home at Montrose, a health care facility for veterans and their dependents. Under the Prompt Payment Law, vendors may receive interest on their payments from the State when the payments are not timely. In audit 2007-S-69, we examined the untimely payments made by the Veterans Home at Montrose over a two-year period to determine whether the interest payments were avoidable. We found that the interest payments were avoidable, and recommended actions that could be taken by the Home to avoid such payments in the future. When we followed up on this matter with Department of Health officials, we found that our audit recommendation had been implemented.
