Audit (A-07-10-03146)

Results of Limited Scope Review of Center for Health and Wellness, Inc.

Executive Summary

We reviewed the financial condition of Center for Health and Wellness, Inc. (CHW), as part of a nationwide series of reviews of community health centers that have received funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act).

Based on our assessment, we believe CHW is financially viable, has the capacity to manage and account for Federal funds, and is capable of operating its health center in accordance with Federal regulations. However, we identified several weaknesses in CHW's financial management: lack of written cash management policies and procedures, to include policies and procedures for adherence to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation limits; lack of policies and procedures governing reporting requirements mandated by the Recovery Act; inadequate segregation of duties; and lack of adherence to inventory policies and procedures.

In written comments on our draft report, CHW concurred with our findings and recommendation.
