APRIL 28, 2016 – A recent audit of HFM BOCES’ procurement processes by the New York State Comptroller’s Office commended HFM officials for ensuring goods and services were purchased according to the BOCES’ adopted policies and state law.
The routine audit, which examined procurement records for a one-year period from July 2014 to Aug. 2015, found that HFM managed resources efficiently and effectively.
The Office of the Comptroller oversees the fiscal affairs of BOCES statewide, as well as BOCES’ compliance with relevant statutes and observance of good business practices, providing accountability for tax dollars spent to support BOCES operations.
According to the Comptroller’s report, the audit’s “results are a resource for BOCES officials to use in effectively managing operations and in meeting the expectations of their constituents.”
Associate Superintendent for Business Kwame Boakye-Yiadom responded to the audit, thanking the State Comptroller for examining and validating HFM’s procurement processes.
