The Next Door Foundation Claimed Unallowable Indirect Costs and Did Not Document the Funding Source of Program Expenditures in Accordance With Federal Requirements

NDF did not always claim and account for HHS grant funds in accordance with Federal requirements. We identified unallowable claims for indirect costs totaling $142,104. We also identified other costs totaling $15,618 that did not fully meet Federal requirements but were related to the purpose of the grant. These costs included $9,968 for contractual services and $5,650 for cost transfers. In addition, NDF's financial management system was not in compliance with Federal regulations. NDF claimed unallowable costs because it did not always follow its policies and procedures for claiming and accounting for HHS grant funds.
