The Office of the City Controller released its report on compliance for federal grant programs and review of internal controls over compliance for fiscal year 2021 (FY21). The report, which must be completed annually, was transmitted to the Office of the Director of Finance and for submission to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse, as required. The report details thirteen instances of non-compliance for the City’s major federal programs, including three material weaknesses and nine significant deficiencies.
Inappropriate grant administration can result in a failure to meet grant requirements, which can lead to some or all of the grant resources needing to be returned to the grantor, according to the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA).
