View Audit Report (pdf)


Our audit found that contractor cost proposals, pay requests and changes were not adequately reviewed by staff, resulting in overpayments of about $147,000 and questionable costs of nearly $647,000. Contract terms regarding cost structure are not always enforced, and some may need further clarification. For example, some items with uncertainties were accepted as lump sum, but would have been more appropriate as allowances based on actual costs. Additionally, specific guidance for contract documentation would improve consistency of contract administration and records retention.
