Audits of Local Governments and School Districts

Gilboa-Conesville Central School District – Oversight of Portable Devices (2015M-344)

Released: April 15, 2016 -- [read complete report - pdf]

Purpose of Audit

The purpose of our audit was to determine if the District’s portable devices were properly safeguarded for the period July 1, 2014 through October 6, 2015.


The Gilboa-Conesville Central School District is located in five towns in Schoharie County, three towns in Greene County and one town in Delaware County. The District, which operates one school with approximately 330 students, is governed by an elected five-member Board of Education. Budgeted appropriations for the 2015-16 fiscal year total approximately $10.3 million.

Key Findings

  • District officials did not keep their inventory list up-to-date when computers were deployed to various locations or when they were disposed of.
  • District officials have not established effective procedures to monitor the use of portable devices when they are taken off-site.

Key Recommendations

  • Ensure that information is communicated to the individual responsible for maintaining the inventory list as items are acquired, moved from one location to another or disposed of, so that the inventory list is updated in a timely manner.
  • Ensure that adequate procedures are in place to monitor the use of portable devices when they are taken off-site.
