On January 2, 2007, almost four years after it began, Auditor of State Betty Montgomery (AOS) released the special audit of Oriana House and the Summit County Community Based Correctional Facility (CBCF). The special audit report verifies that all public money received by Oriana House was spent appropriately and in accordance with state guidelines. "This special audit and all prior audits over the last 25 years have demonstrated that all public money received by Oriana House has been properly accounted for and spent appropriately," said Oriana House Executive Vice President Bernie Rochford.
Significantly, the special audit found that no public money was paid directly to any related entity of Oriana House and that Summit County CBCF grant funds were properly administered and spent by Oriana House.
Oriana House's commitment to excellence has long been recognized through its receipt of awards on both the state and national level. Oriana House takes pride in its reputation of providing quality and cost effective community corrections and chemical dependency treatment programs to the local community.
"Now that Auditor Montgomery's administration has completed four audits of Oriana House in which there were no findings for recovery, the public can rest assured that Oriana House spends public money properly," said Rochford.
Oriana House looks forward to fully focusing on its mission of providing quality and humane chemical dependency treatment and community corrections services to clients and local communities.
