Read the Inspector General’s Report on City Budget Process
The Pelican Institute has obtained a copy of the Inspector General’s review of the 2009 budget process and posted it online.
The OIG report slams the Nagin administration for inaccuracies, a lack of transparency, and a failure to fulfill the city’s charter requirements. In addition, the report claims that the budget appropriates over $309 million in recovery funds without providing an adequate description of their intended uses.
The City has until November 13 to submit an official response.
