State Audits New Orleans Head Start Program

An audit finds a Head Start contractor in New Orleans didn't enroll enough preschoolers to justify its federal grant. The report from the state legislative auditor's office says the nonprofit Total Community Action needed at least 2,510 students to comply with its grant but had enrolled only 1,951 in December.

In addition, the grant required that at least 10 percent be students with disabilities. The center was found to have a smaller percentage, although the audit did not specify the figure.

ULM Releases Audit Findings

An audit of the University of Louisiana at Monroe shows the university is missing funds totaling $58,554 from its Department of Recreational Services as a result of cash control deficiencies.

The audit, released Thursday by the Louisiana legislative auditor, noted that additional funds could be missing because some pre-numbered receipts had been removed from the receipt books and about three months of cash register tapes were not located.

Audit: JP Housing Authority should repay $650K

A federal audit says the Jefferson Parish Housing Authority illegally paid board members nearly $107,000 and created a conflict of interest and violated federal rules by paying $91,000 to a state legislator's repair company.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development audit says the agency should repay the money and must either document or repay another $450,000. That includes $240,000 paid to four Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies for security services, $95,000 to its attorney and $81,000 to its accounting firm.
