Financial Statement Findings and Questioned Costs 2021-001 - Internal Control over the Estimates of Fair Value of Alternative Investments: For the year ended June 30, 2021 NSHE’s process of corroborating fair values of alternative investments was delayed well into October 2021 and experienced some quality issues. The supervisory review was, in turn, delayed as was the identification and correction of the quality matters. 2021-002 - Internal Control over Completeness and Accuracy of the Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards: During the course of the audit errors were identified in the SEFA including: • Inclusion of fee-for-service contracts which did not meet the definition of federal awards. • Misclassification of awards from Dept of Treasury (Coronavirus Relief Funds) and National Science Foundation which should have been grouped into the Research & Development award cluster. Federal Award Findings and Questioned Costs Student Financial Assistance Cluster Findings 2021-003 - Internal Control over Compliance: At the University of Nevada, Reno (“UNR”), University of Nevada, Las Vegas (“UNLV”), and System Computing Services (“SCS”), deficiencies were noted in security administration related to the information technology general controls (“ITGCs”) in the PeopleSoft application. Specifically, controls were lacking around restriction of elevated access, user access reviews, termination of access and segregation of duties as it relates to the PeopleSoft application over the student financial assistance program. 2021-004 - Special Tests and Provisions: Return of Title IV funds for withdrawn students. During testing at UNLV, the following instances were identified: the Institution did not complete the return of Title IV funds as calculated within the 45-day requirement as noted in the Federal Regulations; the Institution did not complete a return of Title IV calculation for students who were on academic leave of absence or who withdrew before the institutional census date; and the Institution did not complete the return of Title IV funds as calculated funds within 30 days for a student who did not begin attendance. During testing at UNR, it was identified that the Institution did not return and report the return of Title IV funds to Common Origination and Disbursement (“COD”) within the 45-day requirement as noted in the Federal Regulations. 2021-005 - Special Tests and Provisions: Disbursements To or On Behalf of Students. During testing at CSN, an instance was identified where the Institution disbursed a Pell Grant and Direct Loans to a student before notifying the student of the award. 2021-006 - Special Tests and Provisions: Enrollment Reporting. It was noted that CSN and NSC did not report student status changes to the National Student Loan Data System (“NSLDS”) within 30 days, or within 60 days when they expected to submit their next student status confirmation report within that time period, of the change as required by the regulations. 2021-007 - Special Tests and Provisions: Verification and Updating of Student Aid Application Information. CSN did not properly and consistently update FAFSA information as a result of the verification process. 2021-008 - Reporting Pell Common Origination Records. CSN did not report disbursement of Pell grant within the required timeframe.
