The Kansas Statewide Homeless Coalition, Inc. (KSHC) is a not for profit organization with two full time staff. KSHC is governed by a Board of Directors. It has a diverse membership comprised of homeless individuals, service providers, faith-based groups and government agencies. Our work is to coordinate with communities throughout Kansas to provide education and support in an effort to end homelessness in Kansas. Activities include providing educational conference / workshops designed to educate communities on the issues regarding homelessness in Kansas. The KSHC also coordinates an annual point-in-time homeless count for 101 counties (excluding Shawnee county, Wyandotte county, Sedgwick county, Johnson county.) The KSHC Executive Director and the Balance of State (BoS) Continuum of Care (CoC) Coordinator provide support to the 8 regions in the 101 counties to help organize and coordinate regional meetings aimed at developing plans to address homelessness in each of the regions of the 101 counties.

Financial Audit Cover letter 9-17-15

RFP 2014 KSHC Financial Review


Questions and Answers:

Are you wanting an audit or a review?     The KSHC Board has requested an audit.

May we see the a copy of your most recent audit report?

Varney Associates Financial Statements

A copy of the journal entries the auditors proposed.  See Audit

A copy of the accountant communication letter.  See Audit

A copy of the balance sheet and income statement for the year requesting to be audited.

Those will be provided to the agency that receives the contract. For the time period that the audit is being requested there are approximately 280 transactions. Approximately 15% of them are income transactions, 85% are expense transactions

Who the current auditors are and the reason you’re thinking about switching. KSHC has recently gone through some changes, hiring a new Executive Director and welcoming new board members, officers and relocating our office.  The KSHC is attempting to re-establish our policies and procedures and to get back on track with our responsibilities. 

What period did your last audit cover?     1/1/2010 – 12/31/2010

May we please see unaudited financial statements for 2014?  Not available

Were there any significant journal entries proposed by the auditors during the last audit?     See Audit

Were there any material weakness or significant deficiencies in internal control noted during your last audit?   See Audit

Are there any special requirements of the grant that would need to be addressed in the audit?  No

Are there records available to enable the auditor to test the beginning cash , etc. – since it is an initial audit for the organization? Yes, we have the records back to January 2012.

The effective date of the audit – would this be September 30, 2015?  Later in the RFP it states an audit as of 12/31/14 delivered by 12/31/15. I just want to clarify, as I think the calendar year end would be easier to audit and analyze – especially since the audit is to be performed every other year. Starting date 1/1/2014 – 6/30/2015
