Management and Financial Audit of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands

Report No. 95-16

Summary

In our 1993 report, Management and Financial Audit of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, Report No. 93-22, we found that the department was far from achieving its mission since the majority of beneficiaries were still waiting to receive their homestead.  The Hawaiian Homes Commission had not asserted its authority and policy-making responsibilities, and the department lacked written policies and a strategic plan to direct and lead its programs.  We also found inadequacies in records management and loan activities.  In our 1995 follow-up, Report No. 95-16, we found good progress in records management and loan collections, but the outgoing department leadership took exception to our recommendations in other areas.  However, the new department administration has expressed support for most of our recommendations and states that corrective actions are under way.
