Audit Audit of Brockton Area Multi-Services, Inc. (BAMSI)
BAMSI was found to have charged more than $11,000 in non-reimbursable expenses to its state contracts and did not properly maintain an accurate inventory of assets. The audit examined the period of July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019.
BAMSI should cooperate with the state Operational Services Division (OSD) to resolve the identified issues regarding $11,311 of nonreimbursable costs and should reimburse the Commonwealth for any such costs that OSD determines must be repaid.
BAMSI should implement internal controls to ensure that its staff reviews all of the president and CEO’s expenses for reasonableness and allowability before they are paid.
BAMSI should develop and implement a procedure to ensure that all applicants complete applications, should document the notification of rejections sent to rejected applicants, and should perform Criminal Offender Record Information reviews before newly appointed board members attend meetings.
BAMSI should update its board application website software to ensure that the software notifies the chairperson of the board affairs committee when an application is received.
BAMSI should maintain a log of applicants to ensure that the committee has received all applications.
