Issue Date March 1, 2011 Audit Report Number 2011-KC-1002 TO: Donald J. Lavoy, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Field Operations, PQ //signed// FROM: Ronald J. Hosking, Regional Inspector General for Audit, 7AGA SUBJECT: The East St. Louis, IL Housing Authority Drew Capital Funds for Unsupported and Ineligible Expenses HIGHLIGHTS What We Audited and Why We audited the East St. Louis Housing Authority’s (Authority) Public Housing Capital Fund program. We selected the Authority for an audit based upon a citizen complaint that the Authority drew down capital funds without adequate support. Our audit objective was to determine whether the Authority had proper support for its capital fund draws. What We Found The Authority drew down grant funds for ineligible items and without adequate support. Specifically, it made unsupported draws, excessive administration draws, draws for force account labor without prior approval, draws above the invoiced amount, and duplicate draws. As a result, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) had no assurance that $171,687 in capital funds was properly spent. What We Recommend We recommend that HUD require the Authority to provide adequate support for the $90,534 drawn for unsupported costs or repay the funds. Additionally, we recommend that HUD require the Authority to repay the $81,153 in ineligible draws and calculate and repay additional ineligible draws outside our audit period. Finally, we recommend that HUD require the Authority to develop and implement procedures for assembling and maintaining adequate documentation before submitting vouchers. For each recommendation without a management decision, please respond and provide status reports in accordance with HUD Handbook 2000.06, REV-3. Please furnish us copies of any correspondence or directives issued because of the audit. Auditee’s Response We provided the draft report to the Authority on December 17, 2010, and held an exit conference on December 22, 2010. The Authority provided its written response, dated January 4, 2011, and generally disagreed with our audit findings, primarily our assertion that the Authority needed to support its use of the management fee. After further review, we agree with the Authority’s position and have removed this part of the finding from our final report. The complete text of the auditee’s response, along with our evaluation of that response, can be found in appendix B of this report. 2 TABLE OF CONTENTS Background and Objective 4 Results of Audit Finding: The Authority Drew $171,687 in Unsupported and Ineligible Costs 5 From Its Capital Fund Grants Scope and Methodology 9 Internal Controls 10 Appendixes A.

The Authority operates 22 developments consisting of 2,073 public housing units. The Authority has been under an administrative receivership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) since 1985. Administrative receivership is a process whereby HUD declares a public housing authority in substantial default of its annual contributions contract and takes control of the authority. For the Authority, a HUD representative who works in the Chicago Office of Public Housing acts as the board. The Authority receives annual formula-based funding under HUD’s Public Housing Capital Fund program. These funds may be used for development, financing, modernization, and management improvements. HUD awarded the Authority more than $3 million under the program each year between 2005 and 2009. The Authority draws its capital fund grants from HUD by submitting vouchers to HUD’s Line of Credit Control System. During the period January 1 through December 31, 2009, the Authority drew down nearly $2.2 million from the 2005 through 2008 grants. HUD’s regulations for the program are established at 24 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) Parts 905 and 968. Our audit objective was to determine whether the Authority had proper support for its capital fund draws. 4 RESULTS OF AUDIT Finding: The Authority Drew $171,687 in Unsupported and Ineligible Costs From Its Capital Fund Grants The Authority drew down grant funds for ineligible items and without adequate support. It had inadequate internal controls, and management circumvented the normal process in an attempt to meet the disbursement deadline. As a result, HUD had no assurance that $171,687 in capital funds was properly spent. Unsupported and Ineligible Draws The Authority drew down grant funds for ineligible items and without adequate support. Specifically, it made unsupported draws, excessive administration draws, draws for force account labor without prior approval, draws above the invoiced amount, and duplicate draws. Unsupported Draws The Authority submitted its final draw from the 2005 capital fund without first ensuring that it had related expenses to assign to that draw. Instead of compiling supporting expenses and requesting that amount, it requested the entire remaining balance of the grant. In addition, of the 48 vouchers the Authority submitted during 2009, 4 included expenses that were not adequately supported. These expenses were supported by internal Authority documents, such as journal entries or pay requests, but without source documents such as invoices. Regulations at 24 CFR 85.20 require that grantees maintain records which adequately identify the source and application of funds. Accounting records must be supported by such source documentation as cancelled checks, paid bills, payrolls, time and attendance records, and contract and subgrant award documents. Administration Draws The Authority made excessive administration draws from the 2008 capital fund. It drew for administration expenses related to an intern after the full 10 percent administration limitation had been reached. Unapproved Force Account Labor Draws The Authority drew for force account labor costs without prior approval. Force account labor is defined as labor provided by Authority employees. HUD’s regulations state that an authority may undertake capital fund activities using force account labor only when specifically approved by HUD in its budget or 5 annual statement. The Authority used force account labor to install air conditioning cages using 2006 and 2008 program year funds without obtaining HUD approval. The Authority’s annual plan for fiscal year 2008 included the air conditioner cages, which it purchased through an invitation for bid during the summer of 2008. However, the plan did not specify that these cages would be installed using force account labor. These labor costs included salaries paid to the employees, employer-funded taxes, and Estamp benefits payments made to the local carpenters’ union on behalf of these employees. Draw Exceeding Invoiced Amounts The Authority drew capital funds to pay a contractor more than the amount of the contractor’s invoice. In two instances, it recalculated the vendor’s invoice to a higher amount. The recalculations were to add 25 percent profit and overhead to the supervisor’s pay. The Authority then drew down and paid that higher amount. It is not a standard business practice to increase the amount of a contractor’s invoice. Duplicate Draws The Authority drew for the same invoices and salary costs more than once. In one case, it drew for the same unit turnover invoice twice before later identifying the duplication and correcting for it by offsetting a future draw. In other cases, it drew for the construction inspector’s salary and benefits for the same pay period more than once and did not identify the duplications. The Authority also made duplicate draws for employee benefits. It drew capital funds to pay employee benefit costs that had already been funded through employee payroll deductions and other draws against the capital fund for the employer-funded portions. Specifically, when it drew salary and benefits for each biweekly pay period, the draw included the employer portion of health benefits. Then the Authority duplicated this request when it drew for payments that it made to the health, vision, and dental insurance companies. Inadequate Controls The Authority had inadequate internal controls, and management circumvented the normal process in an attempt to meet the disbursement deadline. The Authority had inadequate internal controls to ensure proper draws. It did not have written policies and procedures related to capital fund disbursements. It also did not have a standardized method for compiling and maintaining source documentation to support each expense included on each voucher. In addition, the system in place during our audit period did not prevent entry of the same invoice number more than once. The disorganized state of the draw documentation allowed the Authority to lose track of which invoices it had 6 claimed on previous vouchers. Further, the Authority did not monitor how much it had drawn by line item to avoid exceeding its budget. In addition, the Authority’s management circumvented the normal process in an attempt to meet the disbursement deadline. While the amount to be claimed was typically determined by adding up the expenses to charge to the capital fund, in one case, the Authority requested the remaining grant balance without considering what expenses it might have to assign to the voucher. $171,687 Improperly Drawn HUD had no assurance that $171,687 in capital funds was properly spent. See the following table showing the improper amounts drawn in 2009. Capital Unsupported Ineligible Description fund year amount amount 2005-2008 $90,534 Missing source documentation 2008 $3,992 Administration draw exceeding the 10 percent limitation 2006/2008 $58,127 Force account labor and benefits 2007 $300 Payments above the invoiced amount 2005/2008 $4,382 Duplicate draws for construction inspector salary 2005-2008 $14,352 Duplicate draws for construction inspector benefits Total $90,534 $81,153 While the attempted final draw for the 2005 capital fund is not included in the unsupported and ineligible amounts listed above, it had a negative impact. Because the request was submitted 1 day after the disbursement cutoff for the grant, HUD did not disburse the funds and flagged the voucher for review. The Authority then determined that it could only support part of the amount requested, so HUD disbursed the amount that it could support. The Authority’s failure to prepare its drawdown request properly led to the forfeiture of the remaining $500 that could have been used to improve its housing stock. The majority of the unsupported amount that was missing source documentation related to a single draw in February 2009. During our audit, the Authority attempted to support the draw and determined that it could not support more than $80,000. Therefore, it offset this amount against a July 2010 draw. Regulations at 24 CFR 905.120 require the Authority to obligate its capital funds within 24 months after they are made available. The Authority must forfeit any amounts exceeding 10 percent of the original award not obligated by the deadline. 7 In addition, it must expend the entire grant within 48 months. Since these unsupported and ineligible costs relate to older grant years that have reached obligation and disbursement deadlines, the Authority stands to forfeit more of its capital funds as a result of this finding. Recommendations We recommend that the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Field Operations require the Authority to 1A. Provide support for the $90,534 drawn for unsupported costs or return the funds to HUD subject to the 90 percent limitation on the obligation period and repay the remaining amount to the project from non-Federal funds. This support includes verifying that the Authority appropriately reimbursed the $80,716 via voucher 092-519938. 1B. Return the $81,153 in ineligible draws to HUD subject to the 90 percent limitation on the obligation period and repay the remaining amount to the project from non-Federal funds. 1C. Identify the amounts drawn for unapproved force account labor and benefits and for duplicate health, vision, and dental insurance expenses outside our audit period and return the funds to HUD subject to the 90 percent limitation on the obligation period and repay the remaining amount to the project from non-Federal funds. 1D. Develop and implement procedures to assemble and maintain adequate documentation before submitting vouchers. 8 SCOPE AND METHODOLOGY To accomplish our audit objective, we Interviewed HUD and Authority staff; Reviewed independent public accountant reports; Reviewed the Authority’s policies and procedures; and Reviewed Federal regulations, HUD handbooks, and HUD notices. To perform our review, we obtained reports from HUD’s Line of Credit Control System to identify the amount of each voucher submitted by the Authority during 2009. Each voucher represented a drawdown request from the Authority against the specified year’s capital fund grant. We analyzed the data and concluded that the data were sufficiently reliable for our purposes of sample selection. We compiled the amounts of the vouchers from January 1 through December 31, 2009, from the program years 2005 through 2008 capital fund grants. In 2009, the Authority submitted 52 vouchers totaling more than $2.3 million and received disbursements for 48 of the vouchers totaling more than $2.1 million (the remaining 4 vouchers were cancelled). We reviewed the supporting documentation for each of the 48 paid vouchers. We reviewed whether each item included in the draw was supported by proper documentation and whether each item was an allowable expense under the Public Housing Capital Fund program. We also compared the items across the different draws to determine whether the same expense was requested for reimbursement more than once. We performed our audit between March and October 2010 at the Authority’s office at 700 North 20th Street, East St. Louis, IL. Our audit generally covered the period January 1 through December 31, 2009. We conducted the audit in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain sufficient, appropriate evidence to provide a reasonable basis for our findings and conclusions based on our audit objective. We believe that the evidence obtained provides a reasonable basis for our findings and conclusions based on our audit objective. 9 INTERNAL CONTROLS Internal control is a process adopted by those charged with governance and management, designed to provide reasonable assurance about the achievement of the organization’s mission, goals, and objectives with regard to Effectiveness and efficiency of operations, Reliability of financial reporting, and Compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Internal controls comprise the plans, policies, methods, and procedures used to meet the organization’s mission, goals, and objectives. Internal controls include the processes and procedures for planning, organizing, directing, and controlling program operations as well as the systems for measuring, reporting, and monitoring program performance. Relevant Internal Controls We determined that the following internal controls were relevant to our audit objective: Controls to ensure proper capital fund draw requests. We assessed the relevant controls identified above. A deficiency in internal control exists when the design or operation of a control does not allow management or employees, in the normal course of performing their assigned functions, the reasonable opportunity to prevent, detect, or correct (1) impairments to effectiveness or efficiency of operations, (2) misstatements in financial or performance information, or (3) violations of laws and regulations on a timely basis. Significant Deficiency Based on our review, we believe that the following item is a significant deficiency: The Authority did not have adequate internal controls over its capital fund draws. 10 APPENDIXES Appendix A SCHEDULE OF QUESTIONED COSTS Recommendation Ineligible 1/ Unsupported number 2/ 1A $90,534 1B $81,153 1/ Ineligible costs are costs charged to a HUD-financed or HUD-insured program or activity that the auditor believes are not allowable by law; contract; or Federal, State, or local policies or regulations. 2/ Unsupported costs are those costs charged to a HUD-financed or HUD-insured program or activity when we cannot determine eligibility at the time of the audit. Unsupported costs require a decision by HUD program officials. This decision, in addition to obtaining supporting documentation, might involve a legal interpretation or clarification of departmental policies and procedures. 11 Appendix B AUDITEE COMMENTS AND OIG’S EVALUATION Ref to OIG Evaluation Auditee Comments 12 Ref to OIG Evaluation Auditee Comments Comment 1 Comment 2 Comment 3 Comment 4 Comment 5 13 Ref to OIG Evaluation Auditee Comments Comment 6 Comment 7 Comment 8 14 Ref to OIG Evaluation Auditee Comments Comment 9 Comment 10 15 Ref to OIG Evaluation Auditee Comments Comment 11 16 OIG Evaluation of Auditee Comments Comment 1 After further review, we agree with the Authority’s position. We have removed the unsupported management fee from the finding. Comment 2 The Authority submitted additional documentation, including a copy of the payment bond and subcontractor invoices, supporting the draw of $162,765. Considering this additional documentation, we removed this portion of the finding. Comment 3 We clarified in the report that $80,716 was offset against a future voucher outside our audit period. While we did not review this voucher as part of our audit, we noted that it included significant amounts for force account labor as well as invoices that were more than 2 years old. Accordingly, HUD should review this documentation to ensure that the offset represents appropriate repayment. The appropriateness of a significant portion of the offset is dependent upon HUD’s decision regarding the Authority’s use of force account labor as discussed in comment 6. Comment 4 HUD should verify that the Authority properly returned the funds. Comment 5 In addition to the $501 error referenced in the Authority’s comments, we identified 18 ineligible duplicate items totaling $5,309 included in the support the Authority provided for the voucher in question. These duplicate amounts are included in the totals in the report and are made up of payroll periods previously drawn in other vouchers, benefit periods previously drawn in other vouchers, and employee benefits funded through employee and employer contributions included in other salary and benefit draws from the capital fund. There was also an item unsupported by source documentation; this item is also included in the report. Comment 6 We disagree with the Authority that since the work was not performed by regular maintenance crew it should not be classified as force account labor. Regulations at 24 CFR 968.105 define force account labor as “Labor employed directly by the PHA [public housing agency] on either a permanent or a temporary basis”; therefore, the Authority need not employ the workers permanently for them to classified as force account labor. The Authority accounted for the wages and benefits of these laborers in the same manner as it did for its other full-time staff, as these workers filled out, signed as “employee,” and submitted timecards to the Authority and were included on the Authority’s Labor Distribution Report by Department by Employee. Further, documentation related to the procurement of the physical cages estimates the total cost of the project “using manufacturing from the low bidder and installation from ESLHA [Authority] carpenters” and lists the names of the two carpenters that are disputed by the Authority as force account labor. Additionally, in an internal Recommendation to Award Contract document, dated July 22, 17 2008, the Authority stated “we have decided to consider the price of manufacturing only and allow the Housing Authority employees to execute installation.” The recommendation was approved by the executive director on July 25, 2008. Comment 7 On the invoices in which the Authority recalculated the vendor’s invoice to a higher amount, the Authority did not correct mathematical errors made by the vendor. Instead, it applied overhead and profit percentages to line items excluded by the vendor on the original invoice. Comment 8 We contend that the Authority must verify amounts to be drawn to ensure that it does not draw for the same expenses more than once. Comment 9 The assertion that the Authority detected duplicate benefits and that the period was a matter of “several months” contradicts the events that transpired during the audit. The Authority’s accountant provided us with a spreadsheet indicating that some benefits were being charged to the capital fund as late as July 2010, the latest date on the spreadsheet. If management detected the duplicate draws before being notified by us, it did nothing to return the ineligible duplicates. We recommend that HUD require the Authority to identify duplicate benefit payments outside our audit period and return the funds; the $14,352 indicated in the report and the Authority’s comments represent only the amount of duplicates occurring during our audit period and, therefore, do not fulfill the recommendation. Comment 10 As stated in comment 1, we have removed the management fee from our finding. Accordingly, we removed the language about the Authority’s misunderstanding the requirements. Comment 11 The “Policy and Procedures for Processing Modernization Pay Request” provided to us by the Authority covered only submission of payments from the Authority to its vendors and made no reference to capital fund draw requests. We do not believe this policy to be sufficient to ensure proper draw requests. 18 Appendix C INELIGIBLE AND UNSUPPORTED COSTS DETAIL Unsupported expenses Fund year Voucher number Amount Description 2006 092-448931 $3,815.99 No source documentation 2006 092-448931 $417.54 No source documentation 2006 092-448931 $80,716.07 See OIG note 1 2006 092-448931 $39.99 No source documentation 2006 092-448931 $1,700.00 No source documentation 2007 092-477852 $751.60 No source documentation 2007 092-487873 $2,287.00 No source documentation 2008 092-487874 $794.95 No source documentation 2005 092-489495 $10.59 No source documentation $90,533.73 OIG note 1: This draw for $113,366 was made in February 2009 and included a note, dated March 2009, stating that there was an incorrect calculation and the amount should not have been drawn. While we were conducting our audit, in July 2010, the Authority attempted to support $109,133 of this amount by compiling expenses. It compiled $28,417 in expenses (which we reviewed and found $17,875 in ineligible force account expenses, $1,740 unsupported, and $8,802 supported). The Authority showed the remaining $80,716 as a reduction to a voucher submitted in July 2010, but we were not assured that this was proper. The voucher on which it was offset was outside our audit period and contained ineligible force account labor/benefit charges and two large charges for invoices dated in 2008. Since these were also outside our audit period, we do not know whether those expenses were previously drawn.
