HUD Delays Billions In Funding For USVI, Puerto Rico, Citing Alleged Corruption –

1 Share

The recovery of the U.S. Virgin Islands has been hit with a major setback that could ripple through all aspects of the territory, following an announcement from U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson that H.U.D. has decided to delay billions of dollars in funding to the U.S. territories based on alleged corruption in Puerto Rico.

To put the announcement in perspective, during the Mapp administration, H.U.D. had approved a total of $1.8 billion in funding for the U.S. Virgin Islands, monies to be used for everything from new housing communities, infrastructure resiliency, and road projects. Some $8 billion was approved for Puerto Rico.

Now, the funds are essentially on hold, with a senior H.U.D. official telling U.S. media reporters on Friday that H.U.D. had concerns about “past mismanagement of funds” being heightened by “unrest in Puerto Rico.”

“Right now, because of the government instability, we have serious concerns and we want to make sure that we are pumping the brakes and that we’re being prudent and that the money is being spent properly,” the official said. “We’re looking for ways to even put our current monitoring process on steroids to make sure that the money goes to the people of Puerto Rico and doesn’t get wasted.”

Funds for the U.S. Virgin Islands are delayed with Puerto Rico’s share, the official said. Guidelines for the territories will be worked out “sometime in the near future”; HUD did not offer further timeline details, according to CNN.

In July, a federal grand jury returned a 32-count indictment in a wide-ranging government corruption scandal that resulted in the arrest of two former senior officials of the Ricardo Rosselló administration, the former Puerto Rico governor who resigned Friday.

According to the federal indictment, the former secretary of Puerto Rico’s Department of Education, Julia Keleher; the former director of the Health Insurance Administration, Ángela Ávila; the president of accounting and auditing firm BDO Puerto Rico/USVI, Fernando Scherrer, and subcontractor Alberto Velázquez Piñol were arrested by federal officials as part of the indictment. The indictment says the former officials illegally directed federal funding to politically connected contractors.

The only known connection the USVI has had with the corruption scandal that rocked Puerto Rico is that Mr. Scherrer, the BDO Puerto Rico/USVI president, also headed the USVI BDO operation, with John Engerman being Mr. Scherrer’s immediate subordinate.

Even so, the corruption scandal in Puerto Rico in which BDO was implicated, made for bad optics in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Mr. Engerman is a confidant and close friend of Governor Albert Bryan. He led Mr. Bryan’s campaign as manager during the primary and general elections. Likewise, Mr. Scherrer had connections in the Ricardo Rosselló administration, which allegedly allowed him to secure deals in PR. The fact that BDO Puerto Rico/USVI has been awarded millions of dollars in contracts in the U.S. Virgin Islands could easily lead people to believe that Mr. Engerman’s relationship played a role in securing the deals — even though the company under Mr. Engerman’s leadership had been securing government contracts before Mr. Bryan’s tenure.

Following the indictment, questions lingered about the legality of BDO PR/USVI’s operations in the U.S. Virgin Islands, as Mr. Scherrer, who registered as a CPA in the territory as part of the process to get the company up and running here, is no longer at the firm.

In a release issued in February, BDO Puerto Rico/USVI said it would “operate within the Public Finance Authority’s (PFA) newly established Office of Disaster Recovery, which will provide strategic oversight for the expected $8 billion in federal disaster recovery funds allotted to the USVI.” BDO Puerto Rico/USVI makes a bulk of its money in the territory by securing millions of dollars in federal contracts from Witt O’Brien, which was hired by the Government of the Virgin Islands to ascertain that the federal dollars are spent effectively and wisely.

Puerto Rico was slated to receive about half of the $16 billion H.U.D. has to distribute to states and territories hit by natural disasters since 2015, according to CNN. The funding is intended for major projects to make infrastructure more resilient, rather than immediate rebuilding needs. To receive the funding, local governments must submit grant requests to H.U.D. for review.

Puerto Rico Housing Secretary Fernando Gil Enseñat told CNN in a statement that his department “has not been involved or implicated in any of the alleged corruption or fiscal irregularities, and in fact has been recognized by H.U.D. staff for commitment to fiscal controls, management, and risk mitigation.”

Mr. Engerman told The Consortium in July that he would buyout the Virgin Islands arm of BDO PR/USVI. Once the process is complete, Mr. Engerman said he would then change the name BDO VI to something entirely different in an effort to untie the company from the PR scandal.

Yet even with that effort, if successful, Mr. Engerman would have to deal with a slew on consequential challenges. For example, part of the BDO appeal is the “world-class resources” available to its clients. The About Us page says, “BDO in Puerto Rico/USVI is a member of BDO International, the world’s fifth largest accounting and consulting network.” Untying the USVI operations from BDO and essentially forming a new company, which Mr. Engerman said he will wholly own, could lead to a halt in the company’s operations — and even a nullification of current contracts. It is expected that firms that are approved for major, multi-million federal contracts go through a rigorous process before approval.

1. US Security from Michael_Novakhov (88 sites): Eurasia Review: 10 Keys To Self-Motivation

Spread the Knowledge
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

We all know proactive, constructive and dynamic professionals as well as those who are passive, ineffectual and chronic complainers. What determines whether you yourself fit in the former or latter group?

While external factors can have an impact on our motivation levels at work, the attitude we bring each day is self-determined. Attitude explains how someone who lost multiple elections might become president of the United States or someone fired from his own company might then become a business icon.

A paper by IESE lecturer and consultant, Pablo Maella, recommends 10 behaviors and attitudes to increase both your personal welfare and professional effectiveness.

1. Accept reality and others as they are. Self-motivation begins with having realistic and appropriate expectations of work and of those around you. Instead of demanding that circumstances conform to your wishes, accept them as they are and, from that point, find room for improvement.

2. Know yourself and accept that you have strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes we seem to think that making a mistake is intolerable in a good professional, that it leads to disaster. But if we don’t come to terms with our own fallibility, we end up piling on frustration and missing out on opportunities for improvement. Being aware of your own strengths and weaknesses allows you to be more effective and may save you from a downward spiral of low self-esteem. Acknowledge your mistakes, but also appreciate your successes.

3. Don’t complain. Imagine you own a fast-food franchise and a bad batch of meat is discovered in another location of the same chain. You’ve done nothing wrong, but your business will be affected. In this situation, a franchise owner could either complain about the stroke of bad luck or be proactive and establish concrete measures to minimize the negative impact of the news. Complaining solves nothing while focusing our attention on that which we can’t control.

4. Appreciate what you have and be grateful. “Psychological hedonism” is a mental mechanism by which we accustom ourselves with astonishing ease to the progress of our work and then no longer appreciate this progress. We must make a pointed effort to pay attention to the positive, to what is working well. When we emphasize what we lack rather than what we have, we can end up discouraged.

5. Bring a positive attitude to your task. A business study showed that positive, optimistic salespeople billed 90 percent more than those saddled with negativity. And that is because the attitude with which we handle a situation or task influences the final result. In other words, if you go to a party thinking it will be boring, you probably won’t have much fun, as your initial attitude will make it more difficult. Now, don’t confuse positivity with naiveté or a lack of realism.

6. Set relevant goals and challenges. According to the goal-setting theory of Edwin Locke, we are motivated when we perceive that our goals can be achieved and will involve considerable effort. Also, we are more motivated by more relevant goals. Therefore, important goals — goals that provide something of value to others — are more inspiring than an intrinsic objective (e.g., professional development) or extrinsic one (e.g., a raise or promotion).

7. Imbue what you do with meaning. Given the same task, one worker may just carry stones while another helps build a building. Going to work each morning to get paid is not the same as going to serve the community and develop personally. It’s about finding important motives for doing what we do and giving our best to the task. A full life is not dependent on our occupation, but our ability make our actions matter.

8. Be proactive. When we take decisive action at work, rather than sit back as spectators, we take on more ownership and feel more motivated.

9. Raise hopes and rely on responsibility. The key to motivation is not so much doing just what we like, but instead pouring the most enthusiasm into what we have to do. And when enthusiasm fades, take responsibility to carry on.

10. Be persistent and persevere. If we give up when faced with obstacles, we head into a negative feedback loop being discouraged, with sapped enthusiasm, making us less likely to achieve our goals. Trying to overcome obstacles is, in itself, a motivating force. Determination and perseverance in tough times are the way to rekindle motivation.

Lacking determination or perseverance, Abraham Lincoln would not have run for the U.S. presidency after his earlier election defeats. And Steve Jobs would not have gotten over his dismissal from Apple in 1985 to return a few years later and turn the company into the ubiquitous success it is today.
