Evans Looking Forward to OCFO’s Audit Committee Results
( Washington , DC ) Today, Councilmember Jack Evans attended the DC Chief Financial Officer’s introductory meeting of the Audit Committee to review the financial management and internal controls of the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO). The Committee’s mission is to review the performance of the OCFO and its function in each District agency. Over the next three years, the Committee will provide quarterly reports on its findings and recommendations.
“This is a great step in gaining a better understanding of how the Chief Financial Officer interacts with each agency and, which controls are working or failing,” Evans said. “I look forward to reviewing the data, which will be provided in the upcoming months.”
The Audit Committee includes:
* Sheldon Cohen, Chair (Director at Farr, Miller & Washington, LLP);
* Donald H. Chapin (Retired, Director of Auditing, Arthur Young & Company);
* John Hill (Chief Executive Officer of the Federal City Council);
* James Hudson (Retired, Chairman of the JAH Development) ; and
* Irving Pollack (Of Counsel, Fulbright & Jaworski).
The next meeting of the Audit Committee will be December 20, 2007.
Not only is he spamming community "Yahoo Groups" but he is setting himself up to be the savior (if only in the eyes of the plebes of ward 2) by placing himself as far removed from the shit storm that is taking place at the OTR and OCFO. It is hard for me to believe that as chair of the committee of finance and revenue he is looking for
"better understanding of how the Chief Financial Officer interacts with each agency and, which controls are working or failing”
Maybe if Mr. Evans focused on being a Councilman instead of taking part time jobs (with potential conflict of interest issues) he would have a better understanding. Though I am fairly confident he has a clear understanding of the situation the city, OTR and OCFO are currently in.
