Introduced On:

Long Title:

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE AUDITOR OF ACCOUNTS.


Synopsis of Bill:

Currently, all school districts, including vocational schools, are subject to the Auditor of Accounts. Edits to the November 2010 Charter School Manual removed instructions for charter schools to go through Auditor of Accounts when contracting for audits. There is presently no legislative authority to require charter schools to submit to the Auditor of Accounts processes. This bill adds charter schools to the list of entities for audits through the Auditor of Accounts. The bill takes effect so that the Auditor of Accounts shall conduct audits for the time periods starting on or after July 1, 2015.


Current Status:

  1. Publius e decere

    Is the Auditor of Accounts any relation to the State Auditor, Tom Wagner, who sees no irony in telling everyone else how to manage money while he “forgot” to pay his personal residential mortgage for several years running and had both feet squarely in the foreclosure bucket before whining his way out and even then only after the News Journal outed him? I think this bill might have it backwards. The bill should be about freeing those organizations who currently have to submit to Tom “No Account” Wagner, the “elected” official.
