A recent financial audit of the Belmont-Harrison Vocational School District by the Auditor of State Dave Yost's office has returned a clean audit report. The BHVSD's excellent record keeping has earned it the "Auditor of State Award."
"It's an honor to receive this award on behalf of the school district," stated treasurer Mark Lucas. "I would also like to thank our staff for their hard work which helped in making this possible."
The "Auditor of State Award" is presented to local governments and school districts upon the completion of a financial audit. The BHVSD was one of only two school districts in Ohio to be recognized for this award. Entities that receive the award meet the following criteria of a "clean" audit report:
1)the entity must file timely financial reports with the Auditor of State's Office;
2)the audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant
deficiencies, Single Audit findings or questioned costs; and
3)The entity's management letter contains no comments related to ethics referrals, questioned costs less than $10,000,
lack of timely report submission, reconciliation, failure to obtain a timely Single Audit, findings for recovery less than $100,
and public meetings or public records.
