Rockland Psychiatric Center: Selected Financial Management Practices (Follow-Up Review)

In our prior audit report 95-S-19, we identified weaknesses in Rockland Psychiatric Center's controls over purchasing practices, cash management, equipment inventories, and payments to physicians for continuing medical education activities. In our follow-up review, we found that significant progress has been made by Center officials in implementing the prior audit recommendations. However, additional progress is still needed, especially to improve controls over equipment inventories. For example, since the completion of our prior audit, $6 million in furniture and equipment was purchased for newly-renovated buildings, but controls have not been established to account for and track these items.
