Audit (A-04-10-01081)

Florida's Monitoring of CSBG Funds Provided to Community Action Agencies Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

Executive Summary

The State agency has established adequate internal controls for assessing and monitoring the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funds provided to Community Action Agencies (CAA) under the Recovery Act. However, during our review, we noted issues involving onsite monitoring and timely awarding of funds.

The State agency informed us that the late onsite monitoring occurred because it lost an employee and had to hire and train a replacement. Also, additional work was imposed as a result of the receipt of Recovery Act funds. State officials told us that the State did not award funds to CAAs on time because it received the funds late.

As a result of these issues, risks are increased that intended recipients may not receive all of the additional CSBG services envisioned in the Recovery Act.
