College at Plattsburgh Auxiliary Services, Incorporated: Selected Financial Management Practices

Plattsburgh Auxiliary Services, Inc. (Corporation) is a not-for-profit corporation that provides food, vending, bookstore and several other services to the College at Plattsburgh. We examined certain aspects of the Corporation's operations and found that, while the Corporation generally operated in accordance with SUNY guidelines for such corporations, a number of improvements were needed in the Corporation's internal controls over revenues and expenditures. We also identified certain Corporation services that consistently incurred operating losses; we recommend that College and Corporation officials evaluate whether the services should continue to be provided.
