Created by the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993, the Corporation provides opportunities for Americans to serve their communities through: Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, VISTA, National Civilian Community Corps and Learn and Serve America. The 1993 Act also established the Office of Inspector General, which conducts independent and objective audits and investigations of Corporation programs and operations to prevent and deter waste, fraud and abuse. It also recommends policies to Corporation management to promote economy and efficiency.

 

Each federal agency has an Office of Inspector General (OIG) that provides independent oversight of the agency’s programs and operations. The office is responsible for promoting efficiency and effectiveness in agency programs and for preventing and detecting fraud, waste, and abuse.

 

Audit Report
ISSUED DATE
2017-07-19

The Office of Inspector General, Corporation for National and Community Service, performed an agreed-upon procedures review on grant costs incurred by the Volunteer Louisiana Commission (VL) and two of its subgrantees. VL is the State Commission through which AmeriCorps State and Volunteer Generation grants are provided. It acts as a pass-through entity by awarding those State and fixed amount grant funds it receives to its subgrantees. VL also received State Administrative grant funds to support AmeriCorps State programs.
 
The majority of the questioned costs were caused by deficiencies in VL’s and Louisiana Delta Service Corps’ time keeping systems and the procedures used by VL and its subgrantee, City Year, to conduct the National Service Criminal History Checks for their staff. These deficiencies resulted in $194,9512 of the total questioned costs of $195,993 (approximately 99 percent), $15,915 in federal costs and $180,078 in match costs. The remaining $1,042 of questioned costs ($13 in Federal and $1,029 in match costs) stem from unsupported or unallowable costs charged to the grant. Compliance findings and recommendations are discussed in the report.
 
The review found the following deficiencies:
 
Monitoring Subgrantees’ Single Audits Finding
Financial Reporting Finding
Labor Cost/Payroll Findings
National Service Criminal History Check FindingsBenefit Cost Finding
Other Direct Cost Findings
