Media Contact for Audit Finds No Deficiencies in Old Colony YMCA’s Management of State Funds
Boston — Today, State Auditor Suzanne M. Bump released an audit of Old Colony YMCA (OCY) that found it was appropriately using state funding for non-payroll state purchase of service (POS) contract expenses. OCY is a private nonprofit that contracts with the state to provide various human services in southeastern Massachusetts, including childcare, education, and job training. The audit examined the period of July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019.
“The Old Colony YMCA provides vital assistance to individuals and families who might not otherwise be able to access these important services. Our audit shows the nonprofit has been diligent in its management of state funds,” Bump said. “I have seen the YMCA’s impact firsthand and I commend the provider for its work in the community.”
The audit examined non-payroll state POS contract expenses by OCY. In the files reviewed by Bump’s office, all supporting documentation, including receipts, invoices, monthly statements, and purchase orders, for all these expenses were properly documented and no non-reimbursable costs were charged against its state POS contracts.
OCY offers 29 programs throughout southeastern Massachusetts, including childcare, education, family support, job training, mental health treatment, mentoring, social supports, and violence prevention. In fiscal year 2019, it received over $29 million from state agencies, including the Department of Youth Services, the Department of Children and Families, the Department of Early Education and Care, the Department of Transitional Assistance, the Department of Mental Health, and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
