Financial Audit of the Department of Human Services

Report No 95-17

Summary

Our 1994 report, Financial Audit of the Department of Human Services, Report No. 94-5, found that the financial operations of the department were not being implemented in a responsible manner.  For example, the department was improperly charging expenditures of certain programs to appropriations meant for other programs, failing to lapse federal reimbursements into the State's general fund, and not systematically tracking and recovering welfare overpayments.  In this 1995 follow-up, we found that the department has taken steps to correct many of the more significant deficiencies.  For example, the improper charging of expenditures of certain programs to appropriations of other programs appears to have ended.  However, much remains to be done, particularly in establishing procedures to ensure the completeness and accuracy of data entry, documentation in case files, and verifying the residency of recipients of assistance.
