Office of the Legislative Auditor - Program Evaluation Division

Grant Award Processes

April 25, 2024

We found that the Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health Division (BHD) did not comply with certain grants management policies, including the requirement to obtain and maintain conflict of interest forms from grant application reviewers. OLA had a similar finding for this division in a 2021 audit. In addition, neither BHD nor the Minnesota State Arts Board (MSAB) completed all required pre-award risk assessments for grant awards in our review. We recommend that the Office of Grants Management provide further guidance on certain policies and that BHD and MSAB ensure they follow grants management policies.

Please provide feedback on OLA’s evaluation reports by completing this brief questionnaire.
