Results of Limited Scope Review of Loudoun Community Health Center
We reviewed the financial condition of Loudoun Community Health Center as part of a nationwide series of reviews of community health centers that have received funding under the American Recovery Act of 2009 (Recovery Act).
Based on our assessment, we believe Loudoun Community Health Center is financially viable and has the capacity to manage and account for Federal funds and to operate its health center in accordance with Federal regulations. However, we noted certain weaknesses related to the accounting system, segregation of duties, procurement practices, adequate safeguarding of assets, and a whistleblower process.
When monitoring the Recovery Act funds, we recommend that HRSA consider the information presented in this report in assessing Loudoun's ability to account for and manage Federal funds and to operate a community health center in accordance with Federal regulations. In written comments on our draft report, Loudoun Community Health Center provided information on actions that it had taken to address the findings.
