The People Before Politics Radio Show crew, AJ Woodson and Robert ‘Dr. Bob’ Baskerville are joined by guest co-host Brenda L. Crump and Chris McDonough to discuss the recent redacted Audit Report released by the Mount Vernon City School District
In November of 2022, the Board retained an outside firm, Cerini & Associates, LLP (“Cerini”), to examine all aspects of the District’s grant procurement, selection of vendors, payments, and all related issues, with an initial focus on one particular vendor.
Cerini has completed this review as it relates to this first vendor and has issued a comprehensive final report setting forth certain findings and recommendations for the Board’s review and consideration. As previously promised, the Board is now releasing the attached report in redacted form for the community’s review.
The Board and the administrative team will be working closely in the coming months to create an action plan to address the finding(s) and recommendation(s) set forth in the report, to the extent necessary and appropriate.
It should also be noted that the ongoing investigation commenced by the US Attorney’s Office on February 10, 2023, has not been completed. Nor has any timeline been provided to the District as to an anticipated completion date. In deference to this ongoing investigation, the Board does not intend at this juncture to issue any further public comments regarding the report.
