The audit of an AmeriCorps grant awarded directly from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to the St. Bernard Project (SBP) identified questioned Federal costs of $53,490, questioned match costs of $51,246, and compliance findings. These costs were incurred between April 1, 2016, and March 31, 2018. Most of the questioned costs were due to (1) inadequate payroll records, (2) untimely National Service Criminal History Checks (NSCHCs), and (3) an unallowable fine.
SBP concurred with most of the findings and questioned costs and began taking corrective actions. SBP implemented the CNCS’s approved vendor, Truescreen, to perform it NSCHCs. CNCS management concurred with the recommendations and stated it will resolve the questioned costs during audit resolution.
