O-E?business office gets positive audit

OPPENHEIM – The state comptroller’s office recently released an audit showing business office operations are mostly sound at the Oppenheim-Ephratah Central School District.

“We found that the district established adequate internal controls over business office operations,”?auditors wrote in their report. “Board policies and written procedures have been developed and adhered to by staff for cash receipts and disbursements, payroll, purchasing and claims processing.”

In a letter replying to the comptroller’s audit report, acting superintendent Mark Vivacqua said district officials appreciated the state review.

“The fact that there were no findings or recommendations means that there is no need for a formal corrective action plan,” Vivacqua wrote. “However, we would like to take this opportunity to say that the audit process was very informative and a positive experience for our district.”
