Tribe to dig deeper into forensic audit findings


A forensic audit of the Executive Office for the period October 2015 – May 2017 has been completed and delivered to Tribal Council for review.  The audit was conducted by KPMG LLC and delivered to Tribal Council on Wednesday, Jan. 30.

During the Budget Council session on Tuesday, Feb. 27, Council voted 11-0 (Painttown Rep. Lisa Taylor abstained) to approve Res. No. 134, submitted by Principal Chief Richard G. Sneed, which states, “…that Tribal Council directs its legislative counsel, the Office of the Attorney General, the Office of Internal Audit and Ethics, and the Executive Office to coordinate and use their best efforts and all legal means to obtain satisfactory explanations, information, accountings and return of monies wrongfully paid, if any, from responsible parties identified in the KPMG forensic audit report…”

Following are the first 10 pages of the report from KPMG.  Note that several parts have been redacted by the One Feather to protect the privacy of those not under investigation.
