Sherry Furgison was in attendance to review required pre-audit communications with the Board including her firm’s responsibilities in performing the annual audit. S. Furgison discussed the new format of delivering the questionnaires via email through Infusion software, which will remind recipients to take the survey until it has been completed. Mrs. Furgison indicated that the pre-audit survey completed by Board members is helpful in developing a strategy to conduct the audit, focusing on areas of concern, should Board members have any. S. Furgison stated that information from the responses to the survey was required to be reported annually in the notes to the financial statement.


S. Furgison said that because the District was operating under a contingent budget this year, she needs to ensure that we are in compliance with provisions for that in addition to her company’s regular audit.


Mrs. Furgison said her firm would begin field work this coming summer.


S. Furgison’s firm will also compile a Risk Assessment for the District based on their review of the practices and procedures in place.


The Board thanked S. Furgison for her continued assistance with the District’s auditing needs.
