Financial Audit

For the Period July 1, 1991, Through January 31, 1994;


Public Release Date: September 16, 1994 No. 94-51


  • Assess Internal Control Structure: payroll, capital equipment, and all administrative disbursements.

  • Test Compliance with certain Finance-Related Legal Provisions.


We found two areas where the internal control structure needed improvement:

  • The board's controls over its fixed assets are inadequate.

  • Controls over access to statewide accounting and payroll/personnel transactions are inadequate.

We found one departure from finance-related legal provisions:

  • The board failed to encumber funds in a timely manner.
