Key Findings and Recommendations:
Management letters address internal control weaknesses and noncompliance issues found during our annual audit of the state's financial statements and federally-funded programs. The scope of work in individual agencies is limited. During the fiscal year 1999 audit, our work at the Department of Transportation focused on selected components of the state's financial statements, including state highway construction expenditures and grants to local governments for road construction and maintenance. The audit included three federal programs administered by the department. The department's response to our recommendations is included in the report.
