Comptroller Releases Audit Of Utica School District Payroll
State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli's office has released the results of an audit of the Utica City School District's payroll.
Auditors reviewed payroll payments totaling $4.7 million to 151 employees.
They found almost $418,000 in payments were not accurate, supported or paid in accordance with contracts or board resolutions.
The audit also found manual adjustments for fingerprint time clock system entries were not adequately supported or approved by supervisors.
DiNapoli is making several recommendations, including ensuring all salaries, wages and additional pay items are authorized by the School Board before being paid.
District officials said they had already taken or planned to take corrective action.
