AAPS: Plante & Moran to be Auditor

Plante & Moran has been selected to conduct the Ann Arbor Public School district’s financial audit for the previous fiscal year – 2011-12. The district’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. Plante & Moran auditors will begin their work in September 2012 and conclude by mid-October 2012. The board would receive the auditor’s report in early November.

The vote by the AAPS board of trustees took place that the Sept. 5, 2012 meeting. The board had been briefed on the selection of Plante & Moran at its Aug. 15, 2012 meeting.

The audit will cost about $53,800 plus reasonable expenses. Last year the base fee was $58,100. The district will be looking to bid out the auditing work again after this year’s audit is complete. The staff memo from deputy superintendent for operations Robert Allen indicates that the goal of bidding out the auditing work again sometime in fiscal year 2011-12, before this year’s contract award, had not been met.

This brief was filed  shortly after the board’s meeting concluded. A more detailed report of the meeting will follow: [link]
