The City of Loveland, Colorado (City) received a $21.1 million grant for damages from a September 2013 disaster. We conducted this audit early in the grant process to identify areas where the City may need additional technical assistance or monitoring to ensure compliance with Federal requirements. The City generally has established policies, procedures, and business practices to adequately account for and expend FEMA Public Assistance Program grant funds according to Federal regulations and FEMA guidelines. However, we identified areas related to accounting, procurement, and insurance in which the City needs to improve its procedures to ensure compliance with Federal requirements for the $21.1 million Federal disaster award.
