In its recent audit, the state Comptroller’s Office found Stony Point’s purchasing and payment system adequate.
The audit was conducted for the period from Jan. 1, 2013, to April 21, 2014, examining 222 vouchers under $20,000. It also closely reviewed 12 purchases to determine whether the town followed its procurement policy. (Click here to see the audit report.)
In both aspects, the state agency determined that the town’s practices are adequate.
The audit, however, made two recommendations to the town: One is to number claims consecutively throughout the year, and the other is for the Town Board to thoroughly review all abstracts before approving them.
The town has been numbering claims consecutively each month, but not throughout the year.
In his response to the Comptroller’s Office, Stony Point town Supervisor Geoffrey Finn said the town will follow the recommendations.
“The town is very pleased to see that the audit showed that the town’s claims processing and policies are adequate,” Finn stated.
