Comptroller DiNapoli Releases School Audits

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed audits of the Madison Central School District and the Starpoint Central School District.

“In an era of limited resources and increased accountability, it’s critical that schools make every dollar count,” DiNapoli said. “By auditing school district and charter school finances and operations, my office continues to provide taxpayers the assurance that their money is being spent appropriately and effectively.”

Madison Central School District – Procurement of Professional Services (Madison County)
District officials did not seek competition for seven professional services or insurance contracts with payments totaling more than $119,000. In addition, there were no written agreements with three providers that stipulated the contract period, the services to be provided and the basis for compensation.

Starpoint Central School District – Financial Condition (Niagara County)
The district has consistently overestimated appropriations in its adopted budgets. The district also maintained inappropriate liability reserves of approximately $942,000 and overfunded the employee benefit accrued liability reserve by $820,000.
