The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the advancement of the health and well-being of all New Yorkers. To this end, in partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), FPHNYC incubates innovative public health initiatives implemented by DOHMH to advance community health throughout the city. It facilitates partnerships, often new and unconventional, between government and the private sector to develop, test, and launch new initiatives. These collaborations speed the execution of demonstration projects, effect expansion of successful pilot programs, and support rapid implementation to meet the public health needs of individuals, families, and communities across New York City.
DOHMH’s Bureau of Hepatitis, HIV, and Sexually Transmitted Infections (BHHS) oversees work to improve the lives of New Yorkers by ending transmission, illness, stigma, and inequities related to viral hepatitis, HIV and Sexual Transmitted Infections. The Federal U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and Center for Disease Controls fund directly DOHMH’s HIV/AID for treatment, prevention, and research activities. To meet the objectives of the federal grant, HIV Prevention grant, DOHMH contracts with non-profit organizations, including community-based organizations for programmatic, administrative, and fiscal management.
To enhance internal controls of BHHS’ administrative and fiscal monitoring of its subrecipients, BHHS is partnering with FPHNYC to hire an internal control subject matter expert with Audit management experience to assess, design and manage implementation of internal controls surrounding administrative and fiscal processes relevant to BHHS’ oversight of its subrecipients.
Assess and review DOHMH’s federal grant, and City Tax Levy funded programs, identify internal controls gaps, and make recommendations. Design and manage the implementation of corrective actions and monitor controls’ effectiveness. Maintain on going communication with leadership on risks and their implementation of corrective action.
The contracted Internal Controls and Compliance Manager will work with BHHS’s administration and fiscal management to develop and implement corrective actions to remediate internal control weaknesses in BHHS’ subrecipient monitoring of its subrecipients funded by HRSA and CDC large grants.
To accomplish the project’s objectives, the contracted manager will
- Review the current practices and procedural documents and assess whether they are consistent with DOHMH’s Subrecipient Policy and with the Uniform Guidance 2 CFR Part 200.
- Oversee and manage the BHHS’ implementation of processes and controls to comply with regulations and DOHMH’s relevant policies.
- Ascertain that implemented process and controls are repeatable and sustainable. This will be accomplished by overseeing and testing the effectiveness of controls during FY 2023 and 1st quarter of FY 2024.
- Conduct internal reviews of DOHMH’s programs and related activities, taking appropriate steps to improve programs’ control effectiveness.
- Maintain on going and open communication with DOHMH’s programs on internal control issues and implementation of corrective actions.
