The objectives of this audit were to determine whether the Office of City Manager, a Ryan White Title I grantee, ensured that the Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS), one of its contractors, (1) provided the expected program services to clients eligible for CARE Act Title I and (2) followed Federal requirements for claiming program costs under CARE Act Title I.  The Office of City Manager did not ensure that EVMS provided the expected level of services to eligible CARE Act Title I clients, and EVMS did not always follow Federal requirements for charging costs to the program.  In addition to two procedural recommendations, we recommended that the Office of City Manager refund $210,057 to the Federal Government for the amount EVMS improperly charged to the CARE Act Title I program.  While the Office of City Manager concurred with our findings and recommendations, EVMS took exception to our findings.
