OHA RESERVES PLUMMET FROM $15 MILLION TO ONLY $2 MILLION IN FIVE YEARS



















West Hawai`i Today - February 14, 2018

The state agency responsible for improving the well-being of Native Hawaiians spent nearly double the amount on pet projects than on competitive grants, the state auditor said in a report released Tuesday. 

Office of Hawaiian Affairs discretionary spending included $1,900 to send someone to a rodeo competition in Las Vegas and $1,000 for a trustees sons medical expenses.

The agencys discretionary spending totaled $14 million in fiscal years 2015 and 2016. Thats compared to $7.7 million for competitive grants. Over the same period, the agency withdrew $6 million from its fiscal reserve.

The agency doesnt rigorously vet and monitor this discretionary spending as its own formal grant process requires, the auditor said. Its administration approves some discretionary spending without the Board of Trustees voting or even knowing about it, the report said.

Agency Chairwoman Colette Machado said in a statement the agency was committed to making changes necessary to best serve Native Hawaiians. She said she already proposed moratoriums on the use of fiscal reserve funds and trustee sponsorships. ...

OHA AUDIT - MILLIONS MISSPENT























Honolulu Star-Advertiser - February 15, 2018

This is a time of tremendous need for Native Hawaiians, who are disproportionately beset by poverty, homelessness, imprisonment and social problems. Now would be the time for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and its trustees to focus their considerable funding resources to help the beneficiaries of that trust.

But as all can see from the stunning report released Tuesday by the Office of the State Auditor, quite the opposite has happened. OHA, according to the latest audit, has misspent millions in discretionary funding that should have been properly vetted and directed to the people who need it most.

The agency was authorized in the 1978 Constitutional Convention for the deployment of resources set aside for those of Native Hawaiian ancestry, and the first board of trustees was elected in 1980. Revenues gleaned from the ceded lands dating to the kingdom days are legally reserved in part to benefit the indigenous people of the state. The money is gathered into an investment trust overseen by OHAs nine elected trustees.

OHA protested when a draft of the audit was leaked a few weeks prematurely, and now its painfully clear why.

The final report indicated a lack of fiscal controls over the Native Hawaiian Trust Fund, a laxity that goes back decades but persis...
