Ville Platte Housing Authority receives unmodified audit

The Ville Platte Housing Authority heard from its auditor last Tuesday that it received an unmodified opinion. According to the auditor, that opinion “is the highest you can get.”
The auditor went through the opinion and stated there was only one finding which the housing authority already sought to resolve.
“You had an employee charge some items to the housing authority for personal purposes,” he said,
“but your internal controls, or your system you have in place, caught it and found it. You took corrective action to remedy the situation.”
He added he is still required to include the finding in the opinion even though the housing authority has addressed it.
Also discussed by the auditor were required policies and procedures such as a new requirement for disaster business continuity, U.S. Government Services Administration rates for travel, and reimbursements.
In other business, the housing authority:
• accepted the low bid from Transcorp out of Brusly to replace windows in 21 units.
• approved J. Ronald Landreneau and Associates for architectural and engineering services for capital fund projects and the back flow valve project.
• approved a capital fund project budget revision which included an additional $2,727.00 in a grant from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
• approved the purchase of stoves and refrigerators.
