Financial Audit Division Report 12-13 Released June 14, 2012

Conclusion

The internal controls reviewed at the Department of Labor and Industry’s Construction Codes and Licensing Division were generally adequate to ensure that it safeguarded its financial resources, accurately paid claimants in accordance with management’s authorization, created reliable financial data, and complied with significant finance-related legal requirements. However, the department had some control weaknesses related to its receipts in the Construction Code and Licensing Division. For the items tested, the department complied with significant finance-related legal requirements.

Findings

  • The Department of Labor and Industry did not perform effective monthly receipt reconciliations between its subsystems and the state’s accounting system.
  • The Department of Labor and Industry inappropriately allowed Construction Code and Licensing Division staff access to receipts collected for construction plan reviews.
