Auditor General Timothy L. DeFoor joined members of the Leetsdale Volunteer Fire Relief Association (VFRA), State Sen. Devlin Robinson and State Rep. Val Gaydos to announce the department’s Limited Procedure Engagement (LPE) Pilot Program has saved two months of staff time to complete these audits, from an average of 119 days down to 58 days. “For the last six months, our audit teams have been piloting the use of LPEs in fire relief association audits to see if we can be more effective and efficient in our practices,” Auditor General DeFoor said. “The answer is a resounding yes. By focusing the department’s resources on areas of greater need, we’re giving the taxpayers who pay for our services more bang for the buck. Using LPEs allows our team to shift resources to those VFRAs who need more in-depth reviews.”
