From the Document: "We audited Public Assistance grant funds awarded to Columbus Regional Hospital (Hospital) in Columbus, Indiana (Public Assistance Identification Number 005-UOFZF-00). Our audit objective was to determine whether the Hospital accounted for and expended Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant funds according to Federal regulations and FEMA guidelines. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS), a FEMA grantee, awarded the Hospital $94.4 million for damages resulting from severe storms and flooding that occurred May 30, through June 27, 2008. The award provided 75 percent funding for 122 large and 130 small projects. As of January 27, 2013, the cut-off date of our audit, the Hospital had claimed $71.1 million and IDHS had disbursed $63.7 million."
