it's sort of a double edged sword.
Initally, the management of this entity refused to allow Federal auditors to perform an onsite inspection or audit of the financial records. You may recall the Executive Director drew a line in the sand and denied access.
And that was after repeated requests. And frankly, the Executive Director's offer to provide a financial summary was a slap in the face and in direct conflict with Federal reporting requirements.
So their funding was suspended.
Now they've appealed the suspension. That is their right. And while the appeal process drags on, the Feds must continue existing funding levels.
When the appeal is over, then that will be another story.
Sadly, this type of refusal to comply with Federal requirements is not uncommon state wide.
