NCBA Agrees to Pay Back Monies to Cattlemen's Beef Board Based on 2010 Compliance ReviewFri, 14 Jan 2011 8:18:55 CST
The largest beef checkoff contractor has agreed to repay the Cattlemen's Beef Board (CBB) $216,944 to clear up spending discrepancies and accounting errors that occurred during fiscal years 2008 and 2009, and the first five months of fiscal 2010.
We have obtained a CBB summary of reimbursements due from NCBA and the Federation of State Beef Councils, its checkoff arm, along with a Jan. 7 letter from Tom Ramey, CBB chief executive, to Craig Morris, deputy administrator of USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), announcing a final resolution of issues identified in a contract compliance review of NCBA. AMS signed off on the resolution agreement earlier this week.
