The Audit
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes There will be a DFID audit starting tomorrow on the use of the Haiti funds. Luckily we have plenty of small donor funds to cover the gap! 4:15 PM 7-Feb-10

InepdMercedes Tough day for Gary from accounts. DFID audit of the Haiti funds started today. Gary had only done the Ins accounts. Not started on the Outs 5:58 PM 8-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes DFID were more interested in the Outs part of the bookkeeping. 6:03 PM 8-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes All in all the response to the Inepd Haiti DFID Audit went better than expected. Maybe can use expenses from Brian's Visa Card for some Outs 6:05 PM 8-Feb-10

themabiblogion  RT '@InepdMercedes: DFID were more interested in the Outs part of the bookkeeping. > Oh dear. Brian's got all the outs hasn't he... 6:37 PM 8-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @themabiblogion At the RBS we he had some close calls(too many recorded Outs). A lack of Out accounts can stop a lot of unwanted questions. 7:26 PM 8-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdKelvin It was lucky Gary from accounts concentrated on the Ins. Brian's sister does though have some Outs from his Visa statements. 7:29 PM 8-Feb-10

InepdMercedes Were DFID or '@sanjaygupta behind my twitter suspension or other dark forces? Did I unknowingly say to much. How could I have known!! 7:20 PM 9-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @Phil_GE Not sure. The 4 DFID Auditors are very settled now & looking at the last 8 years of Outs. Gary from accounts is a nervous wreck! 7:27 PM 9-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Gary from Accounts finally started working on the Haiti Earthquake response Outs. So far we have 3,257,435.45 euros in Ins. 4:40 PM 10-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Gary has only been able to find 1,589.76 euros in Outs receipts. However Gary found fortunately 2,507,435.45 in our bank account. 4:47 PM 10-Feb-10
Texas in Africa,Mercedes Bligh,Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes That only leaves a deficit of 748,410.24 euros in Outs receipts. DFID concerned, but glad we're making heading way now on the Outs. 4:51 PM 10-Feb-10
InepdMercedes If any one did receive payment from a young anthropology type named Brian in Haiti. Please send Inepd International a copy of the receipt. 4:54 PM 10-Feb-10
Solar Sister
solarafrica  @inepdmercedes Thanks for becoming a fan of Solar Sister! http://bit.ly/9zWOQr Nice to INEPD on fb. No such thing as too much Inepd-ness. 11:06 PM 10-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Very difficult week for Inepd International. It looks like we may have to repay DFID quite a lot of money. 4:52 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin According to Gary from Accounts DFID is refusing to accept my hotel and meal Out Receipts from the last two years. 4:53 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Our Outs receipts shortfall now stands 6,890,041.76 euros for the last 5 years with DFID. We are in real financial problems. 4:55 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin For the Haiti Earthquake our DFID Outs shortfall is 750,000 euros after they refused to accept Brian's air ticket he bought before the quake 4:56 PM 13-Feb-10

InepdKelvin On the home front we have been having real problems with theft in the House. First CDs , then HiFi, Cynthia's jewelery and now the TV. 4:57 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Poor Damian my son has been robbed 3 times in the last 2 weeks on his way to do some closes shopping. Losing some 800 pounds. Poor fellow. 4:58 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Well poor Damian has had a really rough patch. having to cut short his 4th Gap Year and all the robberies he has had to contend with. 5:00 PM 13-Feb-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin Really terrible position you seem to be in. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen Thanks for your offer of help. Will keep it mind. 5:09 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @timothythompson The DFID Audit team mean well. But all this financial accountability is affecting our work. Had the same problem at the RBS 5:16 PM 13-Feb-10
timbeach3_normal
timothythompson  @InepdKelvin DFID was established "to promote sustainable development and eliminate world poverty" - killing INEPD does neither. 5:30 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @timothythompson Sorry misunderstood your 2nd last tweet. Couldn't agree with you more. It is if we are being persecuted by DFID. 5:34 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @timothythompson Thanks so much for your support. It really means a lot to our organisation in this difficult time. 5:36 PM 13-Feb-10

texasinafrica  @InepdKelvin Very sorry to hear that DfID is interfering with your poverty development mission. Does this mean no more t-shirts? 6:40 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @texasinafrica Inepd may only be around for few more weeks unless there's a miracle. Don't want to alarm staff yet. So please tweet quietly 6:55 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @texasinafrica We have a small stock of T-Shirts(1). Will have one last quiz at Grand Final of the Humanitarian Couple of the Year Awards. 6:56 PM 13-Feb-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin Please do. I have helped a few organizations in a similar position. I have a few ideas that could possibly help.
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen Not sure if there is anything that can be done. Our income has fallen lately and now we will have to pay back large sums to DFID 7:57 PM 13-Feb-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin Look at your assets. Is there anything you can use for leverage to create some income to tide you over.
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen Well we do have quite large future assets in bequests from our Time Poor Donors Program that targets the elderly. 8:02 PM 13-Feb-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin You could use these future assets to leverage income for your current programs and repay your institutional donor.
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen Thanks for the advice. I will ask the finance chaps to look into this financial model. Really exciting idea! 8:09 PM 13-Feb-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin I wil DM you with my details. Would be great to talk more.
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen Look forward to talking to you. 8:11 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @marcopuccia Maybe not, but I really think that audit requiriements should be easier for non-profits. 8:14 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @marcopuccia We have our own Inepd Accounting standards but DFID just refuses to allow us to submit our Ins and Outs in the Inepd way. 8:19 PM 13-Feb-10
Marco Puccia
marcopuccia  @InepdKelvin Seems we need to get away from Charity Navigator "overhead" auditing and focus more on impact and qlty #SB2010BOS 8:22 PM 13-Feb-10
Marco Puccia
marcopuccia  @InepdKelvin Interesting point on DFID, thanks for pointing that out! 8:25 PM 13-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @marcopuccia Yes DFID is a problem! I want to start a #StopDFIDAudits campaign to prevent other NGOs going through the same trauma. 8:32 PM 13-Feb-10

InepdKelvin  @InepdMercedes Do you have figures from our Time Poor Donors Autumn & Winter Campaigns. Been in contact with great chap about our finances. 4:07 PM 14-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdKelvin We registered $11m in bequests in Florida and 2m pounds in UK . How could this help our finances ! #StopDFIDAudits 4:10 PM 14-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin  @InepdMercedes We may be able to leverage these future assets to fund our present operations. Is our income growing from Time Poor Donors? 4:19 PM 14-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdKelvin Yes the Time Poor Donor Bequests program is growing around 25% per year. #StopDFIDAudits 4:20 PM 14-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin  @InepdMercedes That's fantastic news. Will see you in the office tomorrow and discuss further #StopDFIDAudits 4:21 PM 14-Feb-10

Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin Kelvin did you receive my brochure in your email? I will be in the UK at the end of the week. Would be great to catch up.

templefox  @inepdmercedes You put 750k euros in a single person's hands with no oversight or control that leaves Haiti. You deserve to be audited. 7:04 PM 15-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @templefox Yes there were a few gaps in oversight but I don't think we deserved such a vicious audit. You would agree no! #StopDFIDAudits 7:10 PM 15-Feb-10
