Internal Audit has released a new follow-up report covering operational changes made in response to the Audit of Grants Management (PDF).
The City has begun the process of centralizing grant management activities with the creation of a Grants Management Office, Grants Administration Policy, and Grants Standard Operating Procedure, which generally incorporate best practices. That being said, documentation of grant approvals, activity reports, and reimbursement request reviews could be further improved. The City has recently begun implementing a new grants management system which should help to address these issues in the future.
Additional details can be found in the full Follow-Up Review of Grants Management Audit (PDF) report.
