Case Number:
LM Number: 517722


Dear Ms. Duty:

This office has recently completed an audit of AFGE Local R5-184 under the Compliance Audit
Program (CAP) to determine your organization’s compliance with the provisions of the Civil
Service Reform Act of 1978 (CSRA), 5 U.S.C. 7120, and the Department's regulations, 29 CFR

458. As discussed during the exit interview with you and Executive Vice President Frankie
Townsend on May 17, 2011, the following problems were disclosed during the CAP. The
matters listed below are not an exhaustive list of all possible problem areas since the audit
conducted was limited in scope.
The audit of Local R5-184’s 2010 records revealed the following reporting violations:

Reporting Violations

Pursuant to 29 C.F.R., Section 458.3, the reporting requirement under 29 C.F.R. Section 403.2
(see Section 201(b) of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA)) is made
applicable to labor organizations subject to the requirements of the CSRA. This provision
requires labor organizations to file annual financial reports that accurately disclose their financial
condition and operations. The audit disclosed a violation of this requirement. The Labor
Organization Annual Report (Form LM-4) filed by Local R5-184 for the fiscal year ended
August 31, 2010, was deficient in that the local reported cents in Item 14 (Total value of your
organizations assets) and failed to report any dollar amounts in Item 16 (Total Receipts), Item 17
(Total Disbursements), and Item 18 (Total Payments to Officers and Employees).

Since the local submitted an amended LM-4 for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2010 during the
audit, no further action is contemplated at this time.
