Seminole Nation of Oklahoma did not adequately operate and manage its Head Start program


Seminole Nation did not always operate its Head Start Program and manage its Head Start funds in accordance with Federal requirements and did not have effective controls and accountability over funds. Specifically, Seminole Nation did not have effective controls to restrict access to the accounting system, as some employees had access to modules not needed for their job functions and the accounting system access list included five former employees and two unidentified users. Seminole Nation also did not have effective controls to restrict access to executive signature stamps since the Principal Chief was not maintaining his own signature stamp. In addition, Seminole Nation did not allocate costs in proportion to the benefit received, did not provide adequate support for $5,095 in expenditures, did not submit required Federal Financial Reports, purchased equipment that did not benefit the Program until after the grant year, and did not track administrative costs.
