We reviewed the Head Start grant administered by the Mental Health and Retardation Center of Cambridge and Somerville, Inc. (Center, Inc.), Cambridge, Massachusetts. The objective of our review was to determine the appropriateness and allowability of costs charged to the Head Start grants for the period December 1, 1994 through June 30, 1996.

Based on the results of our review of financial information, attendance reports, Board of Directors meetings, Policy Council meetings, and reports prepared by independent auditors, we identified no unallowable nor inappropriate costs. Accordingly, we are not recommending any financial adjustments.
