In recent years, the Perpich Center Board has failed to address significant management problems at its residential arts high school in Golden Valley and middle school—Crosswinds—in Woodbury. If unresolved, the problems will put the schools’ viability at risk.
The Perpich Center for Arts Education did not have adequate internal controls over its financial management and did not always comply with the legal requirements we tested. The center also did not adequately assess its financial risks or monitor the effectiveness of its internal controls. Our report contains 12 audit findings regarding inadequate internal controls and noncompliance with legal requirements.

The Department of Natural Resources designed and implemented internal controls that effectively managed the risks related to its use of money from the Outdoor Heritage Fund, and the department complied with the legal requirements we tested. The department also resolved certain prior audit findings we re-examined in this audit.
