19-06 Agreed-Upon Procedures (AUP) review of AmeriCorps grant funds to Serve Indiana

The agreed-upon procedures (AUP) review of AmeriCorps grant funds to Serve Indiana and two subgrantees, the Boys and Girls Club of Wayne County Indiana (BGCWCI) and the American Red Cross of Indiana (ARCI), identified questioned Federal costs totaling $127,090, questioned matching costs of $82,157, questioned Education Awards of $20,055 and compliance findings.  Most of the questioned costs identified were caused by inadequate financial management by BGCWCI and deficiencies with the National Service Criminal History Checks (NSCHC) by ARCI.  The costs tested were incurred between October 1, 2014 and December 31, 2017.

Serve Indiana concurred with most of the findings but generally disagreed with the recommended amount of related questioned costs.  The Corporation also concurred with most of the findings, provided a detailed plan to implement certain corrective actions, and informed CNCS-OIG that it would make an independent determination about recommended questioned costs.
