Agenda Item #34
Proposed School Board Policies: Anti-Fraud, Facsimile Signatures, and Funds Management
The Auditor General of the State of Florida has provided audit recommendations to the District for three proposed policies to be written and approved by the Board. The recommendations are:
1. Enhance policies and procedures regarding the reporting of suspected fraud - District staff is proposing a policy entitled Anti-Fraud to augment current policies 1210, 3210, and 4210; these policies are entitled Standards of Ethical Conduct.
2. Controls over electronic funds transfers could be enhanced - District staff is proposing separate policies to address both electronic signatures and electronic funds management. The Superintendent, in conjunction with staff, will develop administrative procedures to support each.
Hold public hearing and adopt/approve the proposed policies listed above.
