We audited the Benton Harbor Housing Commission's (Commission) Public Housing Captial Fund program (program). The audit was conducted based upon a request from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Detroit Office of Public Housing. Our objectives were to determine whether the Commission operated its program in a manner that provides reasonable assurance that (1) expenditures were adequately supported and eligible and (2) procurement transactions met that Commission's and HUD's requirements.

Recommendation Status Date Issued Summary
2006-CH-1010-001-A Open May 18, 2006 We recommend that the director of HUD’s Detroit Office of Public Housing require the Commission to provide documentation to support the $206,224 in unsupported program disbursements cited in this finding or reimburse its program from nonfederal funds for the applicable amount.
