John Conyers, Jr.
"Gained an understanding of NECC and its governance, management, and operations by reviewing organization materials, reports, and public filings and interviewing acting members of NECC's staff and representatives of its audit firm."
NECC stands for the New England Center for Children, Inc., a private corporation. Last time I checked, most businesses subcontracted do not typically let an outside entity voluntarily go through their books. In this instance, the "outside" entity is the Auditor General and NECC is the sub-recipient of the federal cost reimbursements.
So my question here is, if in fact, this is the result of the audit ordered by Ms. Roche, then how could the audit conclude:
Keep in mind as you read this 6, yes, (six) page audit, there is no identified methodology section. I guess Suzzane Bump, the Auditor General, just took NECC's word on how great everything was even though they were billing for a dead kid."The New England Center for Children, Inc. has established internal control policies and procedures that it believes provide reasonable assurance that organizational objectives and compliance obligations are met and that associated risks such as those for fraud, waste, and abuse are minimized. For reviewed areas related to our audit objectives, we did not identify any significant deficiencies warranting attention by those responsible for governance."
