Abstract : We agreed the auditor and the state that, at the time of the audit, the costs for purchase of a data base to be used to identify potential program participants should have been disallowed. Information on persons who might be potential program applicants, to be provided under contract, was not requested or obtained by the Downriver project. However, after the state's determination to disallow this expenditure, Downriver requested the information (in the form of several reports), and the contractor expressed willingness to deliver it. If Downriver receives the reports, it may request the state to reevaluate the allowability of the expenditure. (See p.8) Although the state allowed all costs for payments to a consultant for computer services, the costs incurred before the award of a contract under a competitive bid process should have been disallowed because the state had denied Downriver's original request for a sole- source contract and instead required Downriver to have the contract competitively bid.
