FEMA audit of Jacksonville’s post-Matthew spending looms

The city of Jacksonville is girding up for a looming late-April audit of post-Hurricane Matthew spending, much of which could be reimbursed by FEMA.

Reimbursement is contingent on a number of factors, according to a letter from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to Jacksonville CAO Sam Mousa.

FEMA requires a lot of detail. Among the asks: costs claimed and the precise accounting; payroll records; accounting and contracting procedures; insurance policies; and an itemized list of contracts.

The city had once estimated $100M in damage, though that estimate moved downward as more information was known.

FEMA would offer 90 percent reimbursement.
