Audit: Emergency Management Assistance monthly grant reports were habitually late; more oversight needed
The Lexington Herald Leader is reporting that an audit of the Emergency Management Assistance grant found that monthly grant reports were habitually late:
- The Emergency Management Assistance grant requires local governments to submit reimbursement documents by the 15th day after the last day of the month. Auditors tested 26 monthly reimbursement reports and found none were submitted by the 15h day of the month. One was 131 days late. On average, the monthly reports were 32 days late, auditors found.
- The Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program reimbursements do not have a specific date for reimbursements but those reports were also delayed. Auditors pulled 47 reimbursement reports and found none were submitted by the 15th day of the following month. Twelve of the 47 reimbursement reports were submitted to state officials at least 60 days after the 15th day of the following month, with two being submitted 173 days after the 15th day of the following month.
