 Dear Mr. Wydler:

      Subject: rcertain Activities of the Economic
                 Opportunity Commission of Nassau County,
                 New York3 (HRD-81-23)

      As you request d      reviewed certain ast4vities of the
 Economic Opportun yomission and the Community Economic
 Development Corporation in Nassau County, New York. We pro-
 vided the information you requested concerning the Corpora-
 tion's activities in our August 15, 1980, letter. Summarized
 below.and detailed in the enclosure is the information you
 requested concerning the Commission's activities.

      During our review, we met with you and your staff
 several times to discuss the scope and status of our work.
 As agreed with your office, we directed our work at the Com-
 mission primarily to examining allegations about mismanage-
 ment of the Emergency Energy Assistance Program (EEAP), par-
 ticularly allegations that the Commission had misused program
 funds. Also, as agreed, we reviewed certain reimbursements
 made to the Commission's executive director and the Commis-
 sion's publication of a monthly newsletter.

      We reviewed the Commission's accounting records for
 EEAP and traced selected transactions through the books of
 account. We also reviewed EEAP grant documents, applicable
 bank statements, audit reports, and pertinent correspondence
 and interviewed key Commission officials. The purpose of
 our review was to determine if the allegations concerning
 the use of EEAP grant funds were valid rather than to evaluate
 the effectiveness of program operations.
