Partnership receives clean audit report



The Randolph County Partnership for Children has a “clean bill” of financial health, according to an independent audit. An audit of 2012-2013 partnership activities found the organization was in compliance and had appropriate internal controls. The Partnership administers Smart Start, NC Pre-K, and a range of other programs and grants impacting young children and families in Randolph County.

The state requires an audit of the Partnership every two years. Auditors look for compliance in three core areas: accuracy of financial statements; how the partnership processes and authorizes transactions such as grants, accounts payable, payroll and cash receipts; and contract compliance.

“We have worked hard to manage every dollar wisely to help our youngest children thrive, and this audit shows we have done just that,” said Pauline McKee, Executive Director.  “We are very pleased with our results.”

Founded in 1999, the Partnership was established to bring together diverse agencies, individuals, organizations and communities to ensure all children enter school healthy and ready to succeed. As the community’s lead organization to plan, identify and fund programs and services for young children and their families, the Partnership serves as a central source of information and technical assistance to improve the quality of early education and child care in Randolph County.  The Partnership funds and/or administers programs in the community in five main areas: quality, affordability and availability of early childhood education and care; school readiness; children’s health; family support; and planning and evaluation.
