Chief Auditor Dan Haynes & The Worcester T&G: A Cozy Relationship

Chief Auditor Dan Haynes & The Worcester T&G: A Cozy Relationship

Published by WhiteRabbitt
In June 2012 the Wakefield-based accounting firm Powers & Sullivan completed a six month forensic audit which was immediately turned over to the Worcester DA's Office.

Two months later Wonderland's accountant, Dan Haynes, quietly submitted his resignation to selectmen. By September 30th he would be gone.

Almost two decades of service and not a single word was uttered as to why he left.

It's been eight months and the Worcester T&G has not interviewed Haynes on record about his departure or the ongoing criminal investigation.

But the paper has reported about his auditing work for Scanlon & Associates on several occasions.

 Isn’t it odd, Outsiders, that in all his years as Wonderland’s accountant, Dan Haynes neverspoke publicly about ensuring the Town spends grant money properly, follows requiredprocurement laws, properly tracks capital assets or correctly manages revolving funds?A multi-million dollar question if there ever was one!But now that he’s gone, jettisoned from this Hole for unknown, mysterious reasons, Haynes isdispensing such practical advice to other Places like the Spencer – East Brookfield SchoolDistrict.Because as Wonderland and Haynes both know –
every little bit counts
every little bit counts …every little bit counts …
Nonetheless Haynes has not uttered one word publicly about his “departure” or what’shappening in Wonderland. All the while the Two, Five and Seven and the Mock Turtle havedirected all the blame on ex-Collector Marcia Langelier who likewise has not spoken a word.But Powers & Sullivan, the accounting firm which performed an exhaustive six month forensicaudit in this rotten Hole, has gone public about certain material weaknesses – in anotherMassachusetts community – which reveal the Deception perpetrated right here by Barre Inc.
 
 Inadequate Design of Internal Control Over Significant Accounts:
 
 Management must rely on the financial information generated by the
Treasurer’s Office
 , the
Collector’s Office
and
 
the
 Accounting Office
to make decisions that affect Town strategy indeveloping and meeting short-term and long-term
 
 financial goals. Consequently, management must beconfident that the information they base their decisions
 
on is complete and accurate. This confidence is gained when there is reasonable assurance that the internal
 
control structure over cash, receivables,revenues and expenditures is of sound design and is functioning as
 
intended.
 
Each of the Offices noted above play a key role in developing and monitoring of a sound internal controlstructure.
 
These roles are summarized as follows:
 
The
 Accountant 
is responsible for establishing and maintaining procedures to assure that 1) allTown receipts and disbursements are properly authorized and recorded in the general ledger accurately and timely and 2) all journal entries are properly recorded and documented.
 
 
The
Treasurer’s Office
is responsible for establishing and maintaining procedures to 1) properly safeguard the Town’s cash and investments and 2) assure that all receipts anddisbursements are reported accurately and timely.
 
 
The
Collector’s Office
is responsible for establishing and maintaining procedures to 1) assureall bills submitted to the Office are collected as quickly as possible 2) secure the Town’s interest in property for delinquent taxes and 3) process receipts promptly in order to maximize cash flow.
 
Considering these general roles, our review of the internal control structure of these Offices revealed the following
 
deficiencies…
 
 Fraud Risk Assessment 
 
Comment
 
The opportunity to commit and conceal fraud exists where there are assets susceptible to misappropriationand
 
inadequate controls to prevent or detect the fraud…
*****Priceless.So the question must be asked: Why hasn’t the Worcester T&G asked Haynes –
on the record
about Wonderland’s forensic audit and his departure? Rather, the T&G, like the WorcesterDA’s Office, has gone along with Barre Inc.’s story and fed the sheeple a Lie.It’s no surprise given the players involved. But the Truth has an uncanny way of escaping suchDeception…
