Executive Summary

The Hospital received an award of $110 million from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, a FEMA grantee, for damages caused by severe storms and flooding that occurred May 30, through June 27, 2008. Our objective of the audit was to determine whether the Hospital accounted for and expended FEMA grant funds according to federal regulations and FEMA guidelines.
