Erie Community College. Report by Jerry Barber( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This document presents the findings of the Office of the State Comptroller of New York regarding the audit of the records and procedures used in administering the Tuition Assistance Program (tap) and Supplemental Tuition Assistance Program (stap) at Erie Community College. Tap is an entitlement program designed to provide tuition aid to eligible full-time students. Stap is a supplemental program that provides additional awards to those students who are educationally disadvantaged. The audit determined that there was an overpayment of $90,210 in financial awards to students at the college for the 1994-95 through 1996-97 academic years, due to school officials incorrectly certifying students as being eligible tap and stap awards. They used a randomly selected statistical sample of 150 awards from the City campus, 100 awards from the South campus, and 150 awards from the North campus of the 25,891 awards that Erie Community College certified. The total audit disallowance consisted of $30,475 from the City campus, $44,649 from the South campus, and $15,086 from the North campus. The Office of the State Comptroller of New York recommended to the hesc that they recover the $90,210 of overpaid awards from Erie Community College, less any of the awards subsequently decertified by the school plus applicable interest.

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Onondaga certified 5,543 students for 11,723 tap awards totaling $8,730,058 during the 1995-96 through 1997-98 academic years. The State Comptroller reviewed a sample of 200 randomly selected awards totaling $147,019 for the three-year period ending June 30, 1998. The college was found to be in compliance with the laws, rules and regulations governing tap, with the exception of eight awards totaling $6,350 that were paid on behalf of students who were not eligible for these awards. Disallowances detected by the audit include: (1) four students not in good academic standing received a collective $3,055; (2) three students not meeting the residency requirement received a total of $2,387; and (3) $908 in tap funds was not posted to one student's account.

Taylor Business Institute, Report by Jerry Barber( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Office of the State Comptroller in New York audited the records and procedures used in administering the Tuition Assistance Program (tap) at Taylor Business Institute (Taylor) for the academic years 1995-96 through 1997-98. Taylor, located in Manhattan, offers both degree programs and diploma programs in Accounting, Business Management, Executive Administrative Assistant Studies, and Travel & Tour Operations, which are approved by the State Education Department for tap eligibility. Tap is the largest of the student grant and scholarship programs administered by hesc. It is an entitlement program designed to provide tuition aid to eligible full-time students who are enrolled in a variety of programs. The Office determined that Taylor was overpaid $30,316 because school officials incorrectly certified eight students as being eligible for tap awards. The accuracy of the Taylor's tap certifications was tested for the three years ended June 30, 1998 using a statistical sample of 200 randomly selected awards from the 4,960 awards the school certified. From the statistical sample, five awards were disallowed, totaling $4,679. a statistical projection of these audit disallowances to the entire population using a 95% single-sided confidence level, resulted in an audit disallowance of $27,408. Three other awards, totaling $2,908, were also disallowed based on the review of other awards from outside the sample period . Therefore, the Office of the State Comptroller in New York recommends that hesc recover a total of $30,316, plus applicable interest, from Taylor. (As)
Actions to Address the Year 2000 Challenge. Report by Jerry Barber( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Office of the State Comptroller in New York audited the City University of New York's (cuny) Year 2000 compliance efforts for the period of April 1, 1996 through March 31, 1998. The purpose of the audit was to determine whether CUNY's efforts provided reasonable assurance that computer processing will continue without interruption or inaccuracy after the turn of the century. Findings showed that CUNY's establishment of a Year 2000 Task Force at the agency level occurred much later than government and computing industry leaders indicated would be appropriate if all risks were to be addressed in a timely manner. Specifically, it was concluded that CUNY's efforts to date do not reasonably assure that instructional and administrative functions performed on college-level computer systems and thousands of personal computers throughout cuny and its colleges will continue to operate and produce correct results after 2000. cuny needs to consider the development of contingency plans or other alternative solutions if important systems fail or are not expected to be compliant on time.

Bronx Community College. Report 98-T-1 by Jerry Barber( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In accordance with Section 665(3)(b) of the Education Law, the Office of the New York State Comptroller determined that Bronx Community College (BxCC) was overpaid $191,126 because school officials incorrectly certified students as eligible for (Tuition Assistance Program) tap and (Supplemental Tuition Assistance Program) stap awards. Tap is the largest of the various student grant and scholarship programs administered by the Higher Education Services Corporation (hesc). It is an entitlement program designed to provide tuition aid to eligible full-time students. Stap is a supplemental assistance program designed to provide an additional year of state aid to educationally disadvantaged students. The accuracy of BxCC's tap and stap certifications were tested for the three years, a process that ended in June 1997, using a statistical sample of 200 randomly selected awards of the 28,392 the school certified. From the sample, five awards totaling $4,907 were disallowed by auditors, and seven more awards totaling $7,086 were also disallowed, based on a review of other awards from outside the sample period. It is therefore recommended, after calculating a statistical projection to the entire school population, that hesc recover a total of $191,126, plus applicable interest from BxCC. (As)
Selected Financial Management Practices of the State University of New York College at Potsdam. Report 97-S-54 by Jerry Barber( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An audit was conducted of the State University of New York (suny) College at Potsdam, evaluating controls over access to student accounts and the collection of revenue at remote sites for fiscal year 1997-98. The objectives of the financial-related audit were to determine whether SUNY's controls over access to student accounts were adequate enough to ensure the integrity of student revenue and collection data. The audit also tried to determine whether SUNY's controls over cash collections at remote sites were effective in ensuring that collections were properly recorded and deposited. Weaknesses were identified in SUNY's system of internal controls over access to student accounts. The audit found that some individuals have access that is incompatible with their other job duties, and that others have greater access than they need to perform their jobs. However, the audit found no instances in which unauthorized persons adjusted student accounts, and the conducted tests did not identify any significant transactions that were not properly supported. The audit also revealed that controls over cash collections at some remote collection sites need to be improved to ensure that all receipts are properly recorded and deposited. Included are recommendations for rectifying the above situations. (As)
Office of the State Comptroller, State of New York [Letter to the Commissioner of Education and the Chancellor of New York City Board of Education: Follow-Up Review of "Monitoring Improvement Efforts of Schools with Low St andardized Test Scores" ] by Jerry Barber( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This letter reviews actions by the New York State Education Department and New York City Board of Education as of January 2002 to implement recommendations contained in a prior audit report. The audit found that the Department and the Board did not always perform adequate analysis to determine the effectiveness of various consultant programs being used by schools to improve performance on state standardized tests. It also found that improvement programs were not always effective, and some schools were able to improve performance without any program help. The follow-up review found that the Department and the Board made considerable progress in implementing prior audit report recommendations. This letter describes improvements related to the six prior audit report recommendations: developing the capability to adequately determine which resource allocation and program initiatives work most and least effectively at improving academic performance; ensuring that all school improvement programs are evaluated independently for effectiveness; determining why some school improvement programs are more effective than others; monitoring performance trends at below-standard schools and determining which schools are improving and why; ensuring that any revised performance data submitted by schools are verified or appropriately documented; and developing a method for evaluating the performance of schools with small test populations.

State University of New York [and] City University of New York. Staff Study: Private Fund Raising at Suny and Cuny. Report 96-D-1 by Jerry Barber( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Between March 1996 and November 1997, a study was conducted to determine the level of fundraising performance for both the State University of New York (suny) and the City University of New York (cuny), and to identify the "best" fundraising practices. Suny and cuny fundraising results for fiscal year 1995 were compared with those of other higher education institutions, development peers, and academic peers. Results indicated that suny and cuny raised significantly less money than the top-20 higher education fundraisers nationally and also raised less than their development and academic peer institutions. In terms of dollars raised as a percentage of general and educational expenditures, SUNY's fundraising efforts were less successful than those of its peers for all types of campuses in the suny system. CUNY's performance was better than that of its development peers at certain campuses but trailed that of its academic peers at all campuses. Individual campus results varied greatly. Best fundraising practices were determined to be the following: making staff and resource commitments, obtaining experience, maintaining adequate records, pursuing prospect research, having annual fund and planned giving programs, and promoting good relations with corporations and foundations. Appendices include report contributors and suny/cuny officials. (Ykh)
