Failure to file reports endangers federal funding


NASHVILLE (AP) - The Tennessee Department of Human Services has terminated its former budget coordinator after an audit found he failed to file reports to the federal government.

According to The Tennessean, the audit stated Adeniyi Bakare had problems filing documents online for millions of dollars' worth of federally-funded programs. Auditors said Bakare didn't contact federal agencies to see why the errors occurred.

The newspaper said Bakare, whose employment ended July 5, couldn't be contacted for comment. Officials said the failure to file reports was a major factor in his dismissal.

Grants have not been revoked, but auditors noted that failing to account for them could result in forfeiting funds.

The money is used for feeding children, providing daycare and paying energy bills.
