Programs Selected For

Fiscal Year 1994 Statewide Audit;

 

Public Release Date: March 24, 1995 No. 95-09

Objectives:

Assess Internal Control Structure: Intertechnologies Fund fee revenue, Intertechnologies Fund fixed assets and depreciation, Plant Management Fund lease revenue, Risk Management Fund insurance premium revenue, Central Motor Pool Fund rental revenue, Central Motor Pool Fund fixed assets and depreciation, Central Stores Fund sales revenue, Printing Services Fund fee revenue, and Building Construction Division expenditures (selected).

Test compliance with certain finance-related legal provisions.

Conclusions:

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

  • Administration has not established some of the necessary procedures for state disaster recovery.
  • Intertech has not adequately tracked computers being used by employees at home.
  • Administration and the Capitol Area Architectural and Planning Board do not adequately control joint projects.
  • Motor Pool's accounts receivable process needs to be improved.

We found one area where the department had not complied with finance-related legal provisions:

  • State agencies have used bond proceeds appropriated to the Department of Administration for noncapital expenditures.
