Department of Human Services
Programs Selected for
Fiscal Year 1994 Statewide Audit;
|Public Release Date: April 28, 1995
Review Internal Control Structure: Various state and federal grants/aids.
Test compliance with certain finance-related provisions.
We found two areas where the internal control structure needed improvement:
- The Department of Human Services encountered problems in processing Medicare and suspense file claims in the transition to the MMIS II computer system.
- The department has not prepared sufficient documentation of the MMIS II operational edits or systems maintenance.
We found one area where the department had not complied with finance-related legal provisions:
- The department is not in compliance with Minn. Stat. Section 256B.27, Subd. 2a. The law requires the department to annually perform on-site audits of at least 25 percent of nursing home participants as vendors of medical assistance. The department is planning to seek an amendment to this statutory provision in 1996.
