Results of Limited Scope Review at Acción Social de Puerto Rico, Inc.
We reviewed the financial condition of Acción Social de Puerto Rico, Inc. (ASPRI), as part of a nationwide series of reviews of Community Action Agencies that have received funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
Based on our assessment, ASPRI is financially viable and has the capacity to manage and account for Federal funds and to operate a Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) program in accordance with Federal regulations. However, we identified certain weaknesses related to the adequate safeguarding of Federal funds, accounting policies and procedures, and a whistleblower process.
We recommended that the Administration for Children and Families consider the information presented in this report in assessing ASPRI's ability to operate its CSBG program in accordance with Federal regulations.
