|Financial Audit Division Report 12-07||Released March 29, 2012|
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 2011. However, as noted in Finding 2, the department did not comply with (and did not have adequate internal controls to comply with) federal eligibility requirements for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program. In addition, the department had other weaknesses, as noted in findings 1 through 11 in the following Findings and Recommendations section (including eight repeat findings from last year’s audit that were not fully resolved1 ).
Our scope included programs determined to be major federal programs for the State of Minnesota for fiscal year 2011, including Medicaid Cluster, Child Support Enforcement, Child Care Cluster, Social Services Block Grant, Foster Care, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and Food and Nutrition Services Cluster.
