Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation

Review of Selected Financial Management Practices

In report 96-S-57, we examined selected financial management and administrative practices at the Long Island Region of the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and identified a number of practices that gave the appearance favoritism may have been shown to certain employees. Subsequent to this audit, an anonymous complaint was received in which it was alleged that certain acts of favoritism not addressed in the audit had been shown to employees in the Long Island Region. We assessed the validity of these allegations and found that, while improvements could be made in some of the procedures used by officials in the Long Island Region, the allegations of favoritism generally could not be supported.
