|Financial Audit Division Report 09-24||Released July 23, 2009|
Except for receipts, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency generally had adequate internal controls to ensure that it safeguarded its financial assets, complied with finance-related legal requirements, and produced reliable financial data. The agency’s internal controls over certain receipts were not adequate due to several weaknesses.
The agency did not fully resolve four of ten prior audit findings.
For the items tested, except for the issues noted in this report, the agency complied with finance-related legal requirements over its financial activities.
