We’ve definitely been keeping extra busy here in the administrative office. Dove is currently undergoing the annual Audit. Dove’s fiscal year runs from July through June and so every year beginning in September we undergo an audit which takes several weeks to complete. The auditing firm looks at everything (and I mean everything) that Dove is doing. From receipts for toilet paper to large grant income and expenses to payroll to client files. They make sure we’re doing exactly what we should be with grants and generous community donations.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget everything that must happen behind the scenes in order for Dove to provide services. Our department and the staff members within the programs work all year long to assure everything runs smoothly come audit time. To say going through the audit is fun and exciting would be stretching the truth. That being said, when it’s all over we are all proud to have accomplished such a large task. It helps remind us every year that we are doing a good job serving the largest amount of people in the right way with the funds we have available.
