The audit of Manhattan Center  for fiscal years 2012 and 2013 have turned up some other interesting Findings according to the auditors.

FINDING: School officials did not use the School Based Gifts and Grants Reporting system on the DOE intranet to report donations.

Finding Details: For 4 out of 15 donations and/or grants totaling $3,6000.00 the school did not use the School Based Gifts and Grants Reporting System on the DOE intranet to report donations and/or grants.

Finding: Lack of compliance with Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) guidelines.

Finding Details : There was a lack of compliance with SOP guidelines

– For 6 out of 15 expenditures  sampled for General School Fund (GSF) related expenditures totaling  $5,478.23 the Request for Expenditures form was not approved and/or if completed. FAILURE TO APPROVE AND OR COMPLETE THE ABOVE REFERENCED FIRM COULD RESULT IN A MISAPPROPRIATION OF FUNDS.

For 1 of 2 expenditures sampled for electronic withdrawal for Senior Activities  totaling  $131.92 the Request for Expenditures form was not approved and / or completed. FAILURE TO APPROVE AND /OR COMPLETE THE ABOVE REFERENCED FIRM COULD RESULT IN A MISAPPROPRIATION OF FUNDS.

SCHOOL OFFICIALS DID NOT COMPLETE THE FINAL STATEMENT AT THE CONCLUSION OF REVENUE PRODUCING ACTIVITY  FOR THE SENIOR TRIP FUNDRAISER. FAILURE TO APPROVE AND / OR COMPLETE THE ABOVE REFERENCED FIRM COULD RESULT IN A MISAPPROPRIATION OF FUNDS.

Because this is a FOILed  Document There is a  Redaction under Management Explanations/Root Cause. I’m assuming the DOE did this to protect  the administration at Manhattan Center.

Question: How long before the DOE realizes that something shady is going on at Manhattan Center?

During my 3020a hearing the city lawyer questioned me about a blog written  by Thomas Paine called the Destruction of MCSM. While I did not write that blog I did.read it and it spoke of financial impropriety that were going on at Manhattan Center. Judging from the audit report for the fiscal year 2012-2013 there might be some truth to that blog.
