Results of Limited Scope Review at Community Action of East Central Indiana, Inc.
Based on our assessment, Community Action of East Central Indiana, Inc. (CAECI), has shown certain trends for net assets and debt that may undermine the grantee's fiscal stability. With the assistance of Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) and Administration for Children and Families (ACF) officials to overcome these deteriorating conditions, CAECI has the ability to manage and account for Federal funds and is capable of operating a Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) program in accordance with Federal regulations. During our review, we noted weaknesses related to fiscal status, timely accounting functions, composition of the Board of Directors, a lack of written policies and procedures for Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) deposit limits, use of consultants, Recovery Act reporting, and security to prevent damage to its property.
We recommend that IHCDA and ACF consider the information presented in this report in assessing CAECI's ability to operate a Community Action Agency in accordance with Federal regulations.
