District 97 Audit Reveals No Internal Control Deficiencies
July 24, 2012
In spring 2009, the Board of Education requested that the district work with our audit firm, McGladrey & Pullen, to perform an internal control audit of the board-approved policies and administrative guidelines that governed the functions of our business office from July 1, 2008 through February/March, 2009. This audit produced no findings or exceptions, which means there were no internal control deficiencies in the department's operations during that time period.
After the board extended the district's contract with McGladrey & Pullen for an additional three years, it requested another internal control audit be conducted at some point between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2013. In April of this year, that audit took place and included an extensive review of the district's cash receipts, cash disbursements, student convenience accounts, journal entries and payroll processes for the time period of July 1, 2011 through April 30, 2012. During its meeting on July 17, 2012, the board was informed that, once again, the audit produced no findings or exceptions.
