|Financial Audit Division Report 13-15||Released July 11, 2013|
The Department of Human Services generally complied with and had internal controls to ensure compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to its major federal programs for fiscal year 2012. However, as noted in the OLA Report on Information Verification in Eligibility Determinations, the department did not comply with (and did not have adequate internal controls to comply with) federal eligibility requirements for the Medical Assistance Program.1 In addition, the department had other weaknesses, as noted in findings 1 through 9 in the following Findings and Recommendations section (including four repeat findings from last year’s audit that were not fully resolved2 ).
Our scope included programs determined to be major federal programs for the State of Minnesota for fiscal year 2012, including Medicaid Cluster, Children’s Health Insurance Program, Child Support Enforcement, Child Care Cluster, Social Services Block Grant, Foster Care, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and Food and Nutrition Services Cluster.
