BOCES implements corrective plan in response to state audit

     The Onondaga-Cortland-Madison Board of Cooperative Educational Services (OCM BOCES) has developed and is already implementing a corrective action plan to address the findings of a recent state Comptroller’s Office audit regarding the Central New York Regional Information Center (CNYRIC).
     OCM BOCES District Superintendent Jody Manning said, “As soon as we became aware of the issues identified in the audit, we took it upon ourselves to implement a plan that ensures all state technical support requirements are met.”
     “We worked hard to fully and effectively address the issues raised by the Comptroller’s Office and, more importantly, to put a plan in place to make sure this does not happen again,” Manning said. “We have righted the ship.”
     In July, OCM BOCES hired Pamela Mazzaferro from the Rome Central School District to become the new RIC director and spearhead the correction plan. Mazzaferro worked 16 years in Rome, most recently as the director of information technology.
     “Pam has done a wonderful job in her leadership role and will be a huge asset in addressing these issues and helping us move forward,” he said.
     “We are sorry this occurred but thankful that districts will not lose financial aid for past practices that have since been corrected,” Manning said. “We will continue to work in cooperation with the New York State Education Department and the state Comptroller’s Office.”
