Re: Material Requested over the Telephone

Dear Buddy:

Mr. Twachtmann came into the office a few minutes ago and told me
to send you the material you requested. I am enclosing the following
items: A copy of the letter written by Mr. Ralph Mills of the
Committee on Appropriations in the House of Representatives. Following
that is a letter dated October 15 and the accompanying material which
Mr. Twachtmann forwarded to him. Subsequent to Mr. Twachtmann's
letter, I personally took our budgets for Fiscal Years 69-70 and 70-71
to Mr. Mills in Tallahassee. The material I gave him was a line item
accounting with the cost of each fiscal year for each account in our
fiscal budgets. I don't have the material I can send to you as there
isn't sufficient time to get it made and out of here this afternoon.

The second item I am enclosing is a copy of a letter addressed to
Mr. Twachtmann and signed by Bryan W. King, Auditor for the
Auditor General's Office. Mr. King works under James Fielder out of
the Tampa office of the Auditor General. The material requested in
Mr. King's letter has all been prepared and placed in a large 3-ring
notebook and is all ready for their perusal as soon as they arrive.
When I received Mr. King's letter we were advised that they would
probably be here some time the first of January to begin an audit of our
records for the period ended June 30, 1971. They asked us if we would
get ready for them standard bank confirmation forms and notify them
when they were ready. This we did. The forms were completed and
mailed to their Tampa office.

Mr. L. M. "Buddy" Blain -2-
Tallahassee, Florida

Quite some time has passed now since all of this occurred. I would
estimate that it's been in the neighborhood of two weeks since
I last talked with Mr. King or Mr. Fielder. They stated they were
behind schedule in completing the University of South Florida
audit and that as soon as they finished with it, an audit of our
records was next on their agenda. They promised to notify me a day
in advance of their intended arrival. We are all ready for them.

Third, you asked me about the last audit of our records. There have
been two complete audits of our records made by the Auditor General's
Office. The first was by Auditor A. Hoytte Rigby and was for the
period ended May 30, 1962. The second audit was for six fiscal years
beginning with Fiscal 62-63 and concluding with Fiscal 67-68.

The last item I am enclosing is a copy of Mr. Twachtmann's letter to
Mr. Ernest Ellison which was written after the receipt of the last
audit report. You will note the letter reflects our appreciation for
the cooperation given by the auditor and his staff as well as indicating
our desire to "have your audit annually, but if that is not possible, we
certainly hope it will not be another six years before we have the
benefits of your complete review."

I trust this information will be helpful to you.

Very tr y yours,

CLT SHULZ, Director
Finance & Accounting Division
