An independent public accountant performed audits of the Willow Run (FHA no. 092-44100) and Willow Run II (FHA no. 092-35650) multifamily properties for the years 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 under the name of The Blackwing Group, LLC. According to the Minnesota Board of Accountancy, neither the independent public accountant nor The Blackwing Group, LLC, had ever been licensed to perform public accounting engagements in the State of Minnesota.
The same independent public accountant also performed audits of the Willow Run and Willow Run II properties for the years 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 under the name of an unrelated firm and falsely claimed to be working for a licensed certified public accountant firm that had never employed her.
In October 2017, HUD’s Departmental Enforcement Center notified the independent public accountant of her debarment from future participation in procurement and nonprocurement transactions, as a participant or principal, with HUD and throughout the Executive Branch of the Federal Government, for an indefinite period.
