Auditor of State Award

presented to Logan Elm

At the June 24 Board of Education meeting, the Logan Elm Treasurer's department was awarded the Auditor of State Award. A representative from State Auditor Keith Faber's office was in attendance to present the award to Treasurer, Steve McAfee.

Read what Mr. Brown had to say, below:

"Hello.  Thank you for your time today and allowing me to speak.  My name is Scott Brown and I serve as State Auditor Keith Faber’s Central Ohio Liaison.  It is my honor to be here on behalf of Auditor Faber to present the Auditor of State Award to the Logan Elm Local Schools.
It is important to note that this award puts your organization in a select group.   

Our office audits nearly 6000 entities each year and only 10% of these entities are eligible for this award.  
The Auditor of State Award is presented to local governments and school districts upon the completion of a financial audit that meet the following criteria defined as a “clean” audit report:
The entity must file financial reports with the Auditor’s office by the statutory due date, without extension, via the Hinkle System and in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

The audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, Uniform Guidance (Single Audit) findings or questioned costs.

This award represents the hard work of all of the school’s administrative staff, board, and employees who make every effort each day to attain accounting excellence. We’d also like to recognize the Finance Office that has done an outstanding job watching over every dollar.   
Specifically, we want to recognize Steve McAfee for his leadership, professionalism, and exceptional commitment to fiscal integrity.   
On behalf of Auditor Faber, I would like to present the Logan Elm Local Schools the Auditor of State Award. Congratulations!"
