Results of Limited Scope Review at Tri-County Community Council, Inc.
We reviewed the financial condition of Tri-County Community Council, Inc. (the Agency), as part of a nationwide series of reviews of Community Action Agencies that have received funding under the American Recovery and Reimbursement Act of 2009.
Based on our assessment, the Agency is financially viable, and its accounting system can segregate costs for various Federal programs. However, the Board has not provided the Agency with the oversight required by law and, instead, has granted the Executive Director autonomy in operating the agency. We also noted weaknesses involving inadequate safeguarding of Federal funds, outdated or ineffective policies and procedures, a lack of documentation of inventory oversight, and an inability to fully expend funds. As a result, the risk for mismanagement of Federal funds has increased, and the Agency's capability to operate the CSBG program in accordance with Federal regulations may be impaired.
