Special Review: Comparison of Selected Governance and Operations Issues at Minnesota Sports Facilities (Jul 26th)

Publicly owned sports facilities in the Twin Cities do not operate under a single governing body or a uniform model of management. In our view, it is reasonable to have varying arrangements for facility oversight and operation, but we highlight certain operating inconsistencies for the Legislature and facility governing bodies to consider.

Minnesota Licensing and Registration System (MNLARS) (Jun 12th)

The Department of Public Safety (DPS) and Minnesota IT Services (MNIT) are developing the Minnesota Licensing and Registration System (MNLARS) to help manage the state’s vehicle and driver services transactions. Based on our preliminary review, we concluded that MNLARS’s management and security controls appear to be adequate. However, we recommend that DPS and MNIT provide more specific information regarding MNLARS development and implementation, particularly related to project timelines.
