Executive Summary
We completed an audit of the Peoria Housing Authority’s Drug Elimination Programs for Fiscal
Years 1994 through 1996. The objectives of the audit were to determine if the Peoria Housing
Authority: (1) implemented Public Housing Drug Elimination Program awards for Fiscal Years
1994 through 1996 with satisfactory outcomes /benefits; (2) submitted required performance and
financial reports for Fiscal Years 1994 through 1996 to HUD which demonstrated satisfactory
results from the Drug Elimination Program; (3) implemented Public Housing Drug Elimination
Program plans and drew down grant funds according to its plans, budget, and timetable for Fiscal
Years 1995 and 1996; and (4) expended Public Housing Drug Elimination Program funds only
for eligible activities in accordance with the applicable Notice of Funding Availability for Fiscal
Years 1995 and 1996.

We found that the Peoria Housing Authority implemented the Public Housing Drug Elimination
Program awards for Fiscal Years 1994 through 1996 with satisfactory outcomes/benefits;
submitted required performance and financial reports for Fiscal Years 1994 through 1996 to HUD
which demonstrated satisfactory results from the Drug Elimination Program; and implemented
Public Housing Drug Elimination Program plans and drew down grant funds according to its
plans, budget, and timetable for Fiscal Years 1995 and 1996. However, the Authority purchased
computer equipment with grant funds that was not being used for its intended purposes.


                                      The Peoria Housing Authority used Drug Elimination
 Computer equipment
                                      Program grant funds for computer equipment that was not
 purchased with grant
                                      being used for its intended purposes. Six computers were
 funds was not being used
                                      not provided to the Peoria Police Department and three
 for intended purposes
                                      other computers have not been installed in computer labs
                                      for resident training as required by the HUD approved 1995
                                      and 1996 Drug Elimination Program grants. As a result, the
                                      expenditure of grant funds did not meet the objectives of the
                                      Drug Elimination Program.

                                      We recommend that the Director, Office of Public Housing,
                                      Illinois State Office, assure that the Peoria Housing
                                      Authority: (1) develops a plan and obtains HUD approval
                                      for the program-related utilization of the six lap top
                                      computers purchased with Fiscal Year 1995 Drug
                                      Elimination grant funds; (2) establishes a computer lab at
                                      Harrison Homes and utilizes the three remaining desk top
                                      computers purchased with Fiscal Year 1996 Drug
                                      Elimination Program grant funds for the computer lab; and
                                      (3) develops procedures to ensure that adequate planning
                                      and coordination is performed prior to the purchase of
                                      equipment or services with Drug Elimination Program grant
                                      funds in order for purchases to have an immediate benefit.

Introduction
Part 761 of 24 CFR contains the regulatory requirements for the Assisted Housing Drug
Elimination Program and the Public Housing Drug Elimination Program. The purposes of these
programs are to: (1) eliminate drug-related crime and problems associated with it in and around
the premises of Federally assisted low-rent housing, and public and Indian housing developments;
(2) encourage owners of Federally assisted low-income housing, public housing agencies, Indian
housing authorities, and resident management corporations to develop a plan that includes
initiatives of several years for addressing drug-related crime and problems associated with it in
and around the housing premises; and (3) make available Federal grants to help owners of
Federally assisted low-income housing, housing authorities, and resident management
corporations carry out their plans.

The Peoria Housing Authority was awarded Drug Elimination Grant funds of $486,540 for Fiscal
Year 1994; $479,970 for Fiscal Year 1995; and $480,500 for Fiscal Year 1996.

The Authority’s Drug Elimination Program is administered by its Director of Resident Services.
The Drug Elimination Program’s books and records are located at the Authority’s offices at 100
South Sheridan Road, Peoria, Illinois 61605. The Authority’s Executive Director is Roger John.


                                     Our audit objectives were to determine if the Peoria
 Audit Objectives                    Housing Authority: (1) implemented Public Housing Drug
                                     Elimination Program awards for Fiscal Years 1994 through
                                     1996 with satisfactory outcomes/benefits; (2) submitted
                                     required performance and financial reports for Fiscal Years
                                     1994 through 1996 to HUD which demonstrated
                                     satisfactory results from the Drug Elimination Program; (3)
                                     implemented Public Housing Drug Elimination Program
                                     plans and drew down grant funds according to its plan,
                                     budget, and timetable for Fiscal Years 1995 and 1996; and
                                     (4) expended Public Housing Drug Elimination Program
                                     funds only for eligible activities in accordance with the
                                     applicable Notice of Funding Availability for Fiscal Years
                                     1995 and 1996.

                                     To obtain general information about the Authority’s Drug
 Audit Scope and                     Elimination Program, we interviewed appropriate HUD and
 Methodology                         Authority staff. We also reviewed HUD’s grant files.

                                     To identify the activities included in the Authority’s Drug
                                     Elimination Program, and to determine if the PHA properly
                                     identified, analyzed, and reported its drug-related crime to
                                     HUD, we reviewed the Authority’s Drug Elimination
                                     Applications/Plans for Fiscal Years 1994 through 1996.

Introduction


                 For Fiscal Years 1994 through 1996; we identified each
                 specific activity for which the PHA received funding, who
                 would perform the activity, whom the activity was planned
                 to reach, how many people the activity was designed to
                 reach, and the timetable for each activity. We compared the
                 planned Drug Elimination Program activities with actual
                 accomplishments.

                 We assessed the extent of the Authority’s drug related
                 crime problem by reviewing information about various types
                 of crimes, their prevalence, and the percentage of crimes
                 that occur at each development designated under the Drug
                 Elimination Program.

                 To determine whether crime statistics reported to HUD
                 were accurate and reliable, we interviewed appropriate law
                 enforcement officials of the City of Peoria, Illinois to
                 determine the processes used to gather and collect crime
                 statistics.

                 To determine if the Semi-Annual Performance and Financial
                 Status Reports were submitted to HUD, we reviewed
                 HUD’s Line of Credit and Control System-Voice Response
                 System Reporting Grant History for each grant reviewed.
                 The Reporting Grant History shows the date when Financial
                 Status Reports were submitted to HUD. We compared the
                 due dates of the Semi-Annual Performance and Financial
                 Status Reports to the actual dates the reports were
                 submitted. We also determined whether the Public Housing
                 Authority submitted the required Final Performance and
                 Financial Status Reports within 90 days of the termination
                 date of the grant agreement.

                 To determine whether Public Housing Drug Elimination
                 Program disbursements were eligible and properly
                 supported, we reviewed source documentation for selected
                 disbursements including payment records, contracts, and
                 vendor invoices.

                 To determine if the Public Housing Drug Elimination
                 Program grant disbursements were properly recorded in the
                 Authority’s accounting records, we reviewed the
                 Authority’s audited financial statements, General Ledger
                 and Disbursements Schedules.

The audit covered Drug Elimination Grant activities for the
period October 1994 through February 1998. We extended
the period as necessary. We performed the audit at the
Authority during January and February 1998.

We conducted the audit in accordance with generally
accepted government auditing standards. We provided a
copy of our draft finding to the Authority’s Executive
Director.

  Computer Equipment Purchased With Grant
 Funds Was Not Used For Its Intended Purposes
The Peoria Housing Authority used Drug Elimination Program grant funds for computer equipment
that was not used for their intended purposes. HUD approved the purchase of six laptop computers
and related equipment to be used by police officers assigned to the Drug Elimination Program in order
to gather data and statistics for Drug Elimination Grant Progress Reports. HUD also approved the
purchase of nine desk top computers and related equipment to be used for resident training at three
family developments. The Housing Authority never provided the six laptop computers to the Peoria
Police Department and the Housing Authority has utilized only six of the nine desk top computers for
resident training. As a result, the expenditure of grant funds did not meet the objectives of the Drug
Elimination Program.


                                       OMB Circular A-87, Attachment A, Paragraph C.1 states that
 HUD and Authority                     to be allowable under Federal awards, a cost must be necessary
 requirements                          and reasonable for proper and efficient performance and
                                       administration of Federal awards.

                                       Page PP-2 of the Authority's Procurement Policy states that the
                                       Executive Director or his/her designee shall ensure that
                                       procurement requirements are subject to an annual planning
                                       process to assure efficient and economic purchasing.

                                       The Peoria Housing Authority purchased six laptop computers,
 Drug Elimination grant                and nine desk top computers and related equipment for
 funds were used to                    $28,548 using Drug Elimination Program grant funds from
 purchase computers                    Fiscal Years 1995 and 1996. The computers were not used for
                                       their intended purposes. HUD approved the purchase of the
                                       six laptop computers and related equipment to be used by
                                       police officers assigned to the Drug Elimination Program in
                                       order to gather data and statistics for Drug Elimination
                                       Progress Reports. HUD also approved the purchase of nine
                                       desk top computers and related equipment to be used for
                                       resident training at three family Developments. The Housing
                                       Authority never provided the six laptop computers to the
                                       Peoria Police Department and the Housing Authority has
                                       utilized only six of the nine desk top computers for resident
                                       training.

Finding


                              The Authority purchased six laptop computers and related
 Computers were not           equipment for $14,400 on April 30, 1996 using Fiscal Year
 provided to the Peoria       1995 Drug Elimination Program grant funds. HUD approved
 Police Department            the purchase of the computers. The computers were budgeted
                              as reimbursement of law enforcement expenses on line item
                              9110 of the grant agreement. The computers were to be used
                              by the Peoria Police Department’s Foot Patrol to gather data
                              and statistics for the Drug Elimination Grant Progress Reports.
                              However, due to a lack of coordination between the Authority
                              and the Peoria Police Department the project was never
                              initiated.

                              Four of the six computers were not being used regularly by the
                              Authority and were stored in the Authority’s computer
                              department. One of these four computers was still in its
                              original box and plastic wrap.

                              The Authority's Director of Resident Services said the other
                              two computers were being used regularly by himself and
                              another Resident Services employee at home for after hours
                              work related to the Drug Elimination Program. The Director
                              said he used a laptop computer to prepare Drug Elimination
                              memoranda, reports, and to gather statistics for the Drug
                              Elimination Program. The other Department employee used a
                              laptop computer to prepare memoranda to various
                              departments, the Authority’s three family developments, and
                              community groups regarding computer labs to be established at
                              the family developments. He said the laptop computers were
                              being used at home to avoid overtime in the office. Both
                              employees had desk top computers at the Authority and
                              therefore had little need for a laptop computer during normal
                              working hours.

                              On August 27, 1997, the Authority purchased nine desk top
   Computer labs were not     computers and related equipment for $14,148 using Fiscal

                              approved the purchase of these computers. These computers
                              were budgeted as Drug Prevention expenditures on line 9160
                              of the grant agreement. The computers and related equipment
                              were received on September 5, 1997. The computers were to
                              be used for resident training in computer labs to be established
                              at the Authority's three family developments.

                              As of March 13, 1998, two of the nine computers and related
                              equipment were in storage at the Authority's Central

                   Warehouse. Six of the new computers were installed at
                   computer labs set up at Taft Homes and Warner Homes. The
                   other computer was being used in the Authority's Resident
                   Services Department to replace a computer which had
                   malfunctioned. These two computers were of the same size
                   and configuration. The original computer is now repaired and
                   the Director of Resident Services said the repaired computer
                   will be used at the remaining computer lab to be established at
                   the Authority's family developments.

                   The Director of Resident Services said the Authority had not
                   yet established the computer labs at all three family
                   developments because of the lack of secure space at the
                   developments to safeguard the computers. The Authority set
                   up a computer lab at Taft Homes on February 28, 1998,
                   utilizing three of the nine desk top computers purchased with
                   Drug Elimination Program grant funds. The Authority also
                   established a computer lab at Warner Homes on March 13,
                   1998 and plans to establish a computer lab at Harrison Homes
                   by May 31, 1998. The Authority should have found secure
                   places to establish the computer labs prior to purchasing the
                   computers.


                   Excerpts from the Authority’s response to our draft finding
Auditee Comments   follow. Appendix A contains the complete text of the
                   comments.

                   Four of the six laptops [purchased for use by the Peoria
                   Police Department] were not being used on a regular basis.
                   Three were used periodically by our MIS Department for
                   staff training. Two laptops were being used continuously by
                   Resident Services personnel to prepare Drug Elimination
                   Program correspondence.

                   The Director of Resident Services will construct an effective
                   plan for four of the laptop computers. The plan will
                   determine whether the Police Department has a need for
                   utilization of the laptops, whether the agency will seek
                   approval from HUD to transfer the laptops to the Housing
                   Authority's conventional equipment, or whether the laptops
                   should be utilized in the computer centers for additional
                   resident training. This plan should be completed no later
                   than May 30, 1998. Two of the six laptops will remain with
                   the Resident Services Department for continued usage of

                     will also be outlined in detail in the developed plan.

                     The computer lab in the Warner Homes was set up on
                     March 13, 1998. The lab for Harrison Homes is scheduled
                     to be operational by May 31, 1998. Each computer lab will
                     contain three computers to total out the remaining six.
                     These will be the computers purchased through Drug
                     Elimination grant funds along with accessories.

                     adequate planning and coordination of services and
                     equipment will be included in the Resident Services

Management Controls
In planning and performing our audit, we considered the management controls relating to the
management of the Peoria Housing Authority’s Drug Elimination Program in order to determine
our auditing procedures and not to provide assurance on management controls. Management
controls consist of the plan of organization, methods, and procedures adopted by management to
ensure that its goals are met. Management controls include the processes for planning,
organizing, directing, and controlling program operations. They include the systems for
measuring, reporting, and monitoring program performance adopted by management.


                                    We determined the following management controls were
 Relevant Management
                                    relevant to our audit objectives:
 Controls

                                    ·   Program Operations - The policies and procedures that
                                        management has implemented to reasonably ensure that
                                        a program meets its objectives.

                                    ·   Validity and Reliability of Data - The policies and
                                        procedures that management has implemented to
                                        reasonably ensure that valid and reliable data are
                                        obtained, maintained, and fairly disclosed in reports.

                                    ·   Compliance with Laws and Regulations - The policies and
                                        procedures that management has implemented to
                                        reasonably ensure that resource use is consistent with
                                        laws and regulations.

                                    ·   Safeguarding Resources - The policies and procedures
                                        that management has implemented to reasonably ensure
                                        that resources are safeguarded against waste, loss and
                                        misuse.

                                    We assessed all the relevant controls identified above.

                                    It is a significant weakness if management controls do not
                                    provide reasonable assurance that the process for planning,
                                    organizing, directing, and controlling program operations will
                                    meet an organizations objectives.

Auditee Comments
March 30, 1998

Mr. Richard Urbanowski, Senior Auditor
Department of Housing and Urban Development
Office of Inspector General
77 W. Jackson Blvd., Suite 2646
Chicago, IL 60604-3507

Re: Office of Inspector General Finding
    Audit of Drug Elimination Grant Programs

Dear Mr. Urbanowski,

In response to your finding that the Peoria Housing Authority never provided the six laptop
computers to the Peoria Police Department and utilized only three of the nine desktop computers
for resident training: We are in agreement.

The six laptop computers were purchased as stated but they were not distributed to the Peoria
Police Department's Foot Patrol as planned.

Four of the six laptops were not being used on a regular basis. Three were used periodically by
our MIS Department for staff training. Two laptops were being used continuously by Resident
Services personnel to prepare Drug Elimination Program correspondence.

On August 27, 1997, this Housing Authority did purchase nine desktop computers and related
equipment for $14,148.00 using Fiscal Year 1996 Drug Elimination Program grant funds as stated
in the audit review. The subject computers were received on September 5, 1997 for resident
training in computer labs to be established at this Housing Authority's three family developments.

Lack of secure space was a major hold up in establishing the computer labs. As of February 28,
1998, three computers were set up and the Taft Homes computer lab was established. The fourth
computer is located in the Resident Services department and is utilized by department personnel.
This computer is used to produce and store all Drug Elimination data, correspondence, budget
figures, notifications and reports.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1A.    Develops a plan and obtains HUD approval for the program-related utilization of the six
       laptop computers purchased with Fiscal Year 1995 Drug Elimination Program grant
       funds.

The Director of Resident Services will construct an effective plan for four of the laptop
computers. The plan will determine whether the Police Department has a need for utilization of

                                              Page 15                              98-CH-209-1001

the laptops, whether the agency will seek approval from HUD to transfer the laptops to the
Housing Authority's conventional equipment, or whether the laptops should be utilized in the
computer centers for additional resident training, This plan should be completed no later than May
30, 1998. Two of the six laptops will remain with the Resident Services department for continued
usage of the Drug Elimination Grant program administration. This will also be outlined in detail
in the developed plan.

IB.    Establishes computer labs at the Authority's two remaining family developments and
       utilizes the six remaining desk top computers purchased with Fiscal Year 1996 Drug
       Elimination Program grant funds for the computer labs.

The computer lab in the Warner Homes was set up on March 13, 1998. The lab for Harrison
Homes is scheduled to be operational by May 31, 1998. Each computer lab will contain three
computers to total out the remaining six. These will be the computers purchased through Drug
Elimination grant funds along with accessories.

1C.    Develops procedures to ensure that adequate planning and coordination is performed prior
       to the purchase of equipment or services with Drug Elimination Program grant funds in
       order for purchases to have an immediate benefit.

The recommendation to develop procedures that ensures adequate planning and coordination of
services and equipment will be included in the Resident Services Standard Operating Procedures
Manual. We will also take into consideration the approved procurement policy. The Resident
Services SOP will be completed by August 31, 1998.

Any questions or comments can be directed to Ivan Williams at (309) 677-7328.

Sincerely,

Roger John, Executive Director
