I am writing to share with you that a Forensic Auditor, one of the top 5 in the State of Hawai`i, has reached out for additional information regarding the Forensic Audit and wanted to submit for an RFQ (Request For Quotation.) However, there isn't an area on the [OHA] website so I wanted to reach out to any of you to share his information and contact him. He has an exemplary record and here is his website for your information: dirkvg.com
My hope is this forensic audit is NOT sidelined with the current recently installed leadership of the BOT.
Frankly many in the Lahui have GRAVE concerns regarding the appointment of Davis Price to oversee the process and his questionable behavior in the past regarding Mauna Kea protectors, lying about OHA participation in the Aloha `Aina march and more importantly, NO FINANCIAL background whatsoever.
The lahui is akamai on what is going on, so we are looking to you FOUR Trustees to ENSURE that the Forensic Audit takes place in a timely manner. Also regardless of the amount of hours and time away from `ohana for employees, I realize that may be a hardship, but like any other job, they are getting paid. It's their kuleana, we shouldn't have to feel sorry to ASK and DEMAND fiduciary transparency.
Please do the right thing and forward this gentlemen Dirk von Guethner your information so he can assist OHA in getting that financial clarity we are all relying on. The trust of the Lahui is very fragile, especially with the latest ramping up of the Lahui Rising series being presented for Federal Recognition. It is a DEEPLY PAINFUL feeling to KNOW that there are your own Hawaiian people, fueled and financially supported, to ERASE everything that our Tutu stood for.
Mahalo for your time, Please message me information regarding the RFQ or a link for me to forward to Dirk.
