DC Auditor Report on School Modernizations

The Office of the District of Columbia Auditor released the following report on the District's school modernization program today.

The District’s School Modernization Program Has Failed to Comply with D.C. Code and Lacks Accountability, Transparency and Basic Financial Management

The report concludes that the District has (1) failed to comply with requirements of the School Modernization Financing Act of 2006; (2) failed to monitor school modernizations for compliance with statute, contracts, best practices, and to secure cost savings; and (3) failed to provide basic financial management, creating the risk that the District has not obtained maximum value for taxpayer dollars and the potential for the misuse of taxpayer funds.

 

The City Council will be holding a hearing on this report and associated issues on Wednesday, July 8 at 11:00 AM.  Details are available here.
