Economic Opportunities Development Corporation of Atascosa, Karnes, and Wilson Counties' Financial Management Practices and Systems Did Not Always Meet Federal Requirements
The Economic Opportunities Development Corporation of Atascosa, Karnes, and Wilson Counties (EODC), a nonprofit agency that operates a Head Start program at various locations in three Texas counties, claimed $372,000 in unallowable costs and $44,000 in potentially unreasonable or unsupported costs. In addition, EODC did not: (1) pay salaries and payments for unused vacation in accordance with Federal requirements and personnel policies; (2) segregate duties related to bank reconciliations and inventory procedures and ensure that only authorized personnel had access to the accounting system; (3) have written policies that adequately addressed conflicts of interest and did not have any written policies that addressed the procurement of consultants; (4) properly value donated space, land, and buildings in claiming non-Federal share; and (5) adequately document in-kind non-Federal share for volunteer services and ensure that they were allowable.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided EODC $174,000 in funding.
