Over the course of a year, the YMCA of Brandon may carry out business transactions with suppliers of goods and services with whom there exists a non-arm’s length relationship with either directors or senior managers of the YMCA. These transactions occur through the normal course of operations, are subject to normal procurement practice and policies and are reviewed in conjunction with the audit. To date, these transactions have averaged less than $10,000 annually. During the fiscal year 2015-2016, these transactions amounted to $8348.42, with three different companies for purchase of newspaper advertising,  plumbing repairs and office furnishings.
