The Board has documented processes, including policies, procedures, and guidelines, to help ensure compliance with applicable statutes and regulations.
However, it should add a rule that addresses potential conflicts of interests in awarding the Nonpoint Source Water Pollution Abatement Program’s Water
Quality Management Plan grants, as recommended by its internal auditor in a May 2015 report.
The Board has processes and related controls to monitor whether grantees comply with grant requirements. It made payments for Flood Control, and Nonpoint
Source Pollution Abatement grants in accordance with applicable laws, rules, and Board processes. Most of the Board’s payments for the Water Supply Enhancement
Program also complied with those requirements.
The Board’s policies and procedures for the Flood Control, Water Supply Enhancement Program, and the Program Management and Assistance grants do not include procedures
for documenting expenditures in accordance with the Uniform Grant Management Standards requirements.
