From the Document: "We audited Public Assistance grant funds awarded to the Orlando Utilities Commission, Florida (Utility) (FIPS [Federal Information Processing Standards] Code OOO·UT15M·OO). Our audit objective was to determine whether the Utility accounted for and expended Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant funds according to Federal regulations and FEMA guidelines. The Utility received a Public Assistance award of $17.1 million from the Florida Division of Emergency Management (State), a FEMA grantee, for damages resulting from Hurricane Charley, which occurred in August 2004. The award provided 90 percent FEMA funding for debris removal activities, emergency protective measures, repair of the electric transmission and distribution system, repair/replacement of buildings and equipment, and other disaster-related activities. The award consisted of 23 large projects and 23 small projects."
