|Financial Audit Division Report 12-05||Released March 23, 2012|
The Department of Employment and Economic Development generally complied with and had controls to ensure compliance with provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to the major federal programs we audited for fiscal year 2011. However, the department had weaknesses, as noted in the six findings presented in this report, including one repeat finding from last year’s audit that the department did not fully resolve. In addition, the department had another prior audit finding that was not resolved and was included in our audit of the State of Minnesota’s internal controls over financial reporting.
Our scope included programs determined to be major federal programs for the state of Minnesota for fiscal year 2011, including Unemployment Insurance, Workforce Investment Act Cluster, and Vocational Rehabilitation.
