Comptroller Audits DSS

The New York State Comptroller’s office released a lengthy audit of Rockland County’s Department of Social Services from January 1, 2013 to August 12, 2014. According to the audit, the Comptroller found faults with contract agencies within the department, some of which did not submit records regarding performance and budgets. Share, a low-income family meal service; the Rockland Community Development Council in Monsey; Bikur Cholim, a health service provider; and RODA, a child care service received $525,755 without reports being submitted to the county. The audit also states that county officials failed to seek competitive bids for outside agencies. County Executive Ed Day stated, “In some ways the audit recognizes what we are already doing, we’ve completely revamped the model for 2016.” Day admits that while the procurement model for 2015 was faulted, action is being taken to change the procedure for 2016. His office has sent documentation to the Legislature seeking a legal way to transition though 2015 into the new model for that will ensure money is being spent where it should.
