BAINBRIDGE – The state’s comptroller has wrapped up final recommendations for the Bainbridge-Guilford School District following a three-month audit.

Following some administrative abuses in a handful of schools in other parts of the state, the New York State Office of the Comptroller has been auditing school districts.

“I’m very pleased with the evaluation. In the comptroller report, what you don’t see are all the things we did right,” said School Superintendent Karl Brown.

The audit focused on the district’s internal controls over payroll and information technology for the period of July 1, 2005 to Feb. 28, 2007.

The comptroller surveyed the school board’s ability to provided adequate oversight of the district’s treasurer’s duties and to ensure the position was accurately accounting for wages, benefits, leave-time and pay in accordance with approved employment contracts. The auditors also analyzed the school’s security of computerized data.

The report found some weaknesses in the district’s system and said that “the board did not adequately segregate payroll duties.”

“Since the treasurer creates employee records, inputs payroll data and prepares employees paychecks, there is a risk that inappropriate changes or payments could be made without detection,” the report stated.
