In conjunction with our audit of the Office of the Governor, we examined the Governor-elect transition funding of $250,000 made available to Governor Tim Pawlenty by the Office of the Attorney General through an interagency agreement. The Department of Administration's Management Analysis Division provided administrative support for the transition office and recorded transactions in the state's accounting system. The division spent a total of $60,339 for the transition activities and returned the unspent balance of $189,661 to the Office of the Attorney General on April 2, 2003.
Financial-Related Audit Reports address internal control weaknesses and noncompliance issues noted during our audits of state departments and agencies. The scope of our audit work at the Department of Administration was limited to financial activities of the Governor-elect Transition Office.
