Hunter College: Selected Financial Management Practices (Follow-up Review)

Our prior audit, 97-S-32, found that Hunter College needed to strengthen controls over tuition revenues and dormitory rent collections. We found students had been registering for classes without having satisfied past-due tuition obligations, and have been residing in the dormitory without paying past and present rents. We also found that controls over the college's equipment inventory needed improvement. For our follow-up review, we relied on the audit work performed by CUNY's Office of Internal Audit and Management Services, which had agreed to follow-up on our report as part of their annual audit plan. We reviewed Internal Audit's work papers from their follow-up review and discussed with Internal Audit officials the work they performed in conducting their follow-up review. We generally agreed with the results of Internal Audit's follow-up review and we concluded that Hunter College has made progress to address the control weaknesses identified in our prior report. The college has strengthened controls over tuition revenues and dormitory rent collections and has made progress in tagging equipment and identifying and disposing of obsolete equipment.
