|Financial Audit Division Report 06-29||Released October 26, 2006|
The Minnesota Board of Accountancy’s internal controls were generally adequate, and the financial transactions we tested complied with applicable legal provisions and management’s authorizations. However, we identified the following concerns.
The Minnesota Board of Accountancy regulates the practice of public accounting by enforcing applicable state laws and rules. The board annually issues approximately 17,000 individual and firm licenses. Effective April 4, 2005, the board merged administrative services with the Board of Architecture, Engineering, Land Surveying, Landscape Architecture, Geoscience, and Interior Design. The board receives a General Fund appropriation for operations; the fiscal year 2006 appropriation was $487,000. The board collected $767,000 in receipts and incurred approximately $442,000 in both direct and indirect costs in fiscal year 2006.
