Best Financial Management Practices Reviews by School Districts

OPPAGA contracted with MGT of America, Inc., a private consulting firm, to conduct this review. MGT of America, Inc., under the direction of OPPAGA and the Auditor General staff, assessed the performance of the district in 13 managerial and operational areas. Based on information in the final report and in consultation with the consultant, OPPAGA determined the district is using 117 of 163 best practices adopted by the Commissioner of Education. If the review recommendations are implemented, the Brevard County School District could experience a positive fiscal impact of $5,895,770 over five years, according to the consultant's report.
