Audit Findings Not Corrected - Correspondence

The Joint Legislative Auditing Committee (Committee) has the authority to enforce certain provisions of law against educational and local governmental entities that have failed to correct audit findings reported in three successive audit reports. For a summary of this initiative, please refer to Audit Findings Not Corrected - Overview.

Recently, the Committee sent correspondence to, and received correspondence from certain universities, colleges, district school boards, charter schools, county offices, municipalities, and special districts, related to audit findings reported in the entities' 2014-15 fiscal year audit reports and the two preceding audit reports. Earlier, the Committee sent similar correspondence related to the 2013-14 and the 2012-13 fiscal year audit reports. This correspondence and the entities responses are also accessible below.

The purpose of the correspondence is to determine the status of these audit findings. If the entity has been unable to correct the finding(s) since the audit report was issued, it is required to provide an explanation and details of any corrective action planned. Such correspondence may be accessed below.

Please note: The Auditor General is required to notify the Committee of the entities with one or more audit findings that have occurred in three successive audit reports. Only the entities included on this notification that the Committee took action against are listed below. For a list of most entities reported to the Committee, based on the Auditor General's review of 2014-15 fiscal year audit reports, please refer to the Committee's meeting packet for February 23, 2017, beginning on page 136. Note: Additional entities were reported to the Committee after the February meeting because their audit reports were submitted late. These include offices from four counties, 13 municipalities, and 19 special districts. Correspondence related to these entities is provided below; however, for a list of these entities please contact the Committee's office. For a comprehensive list of all entities reported to the Committee, based on the Auditor General's review of 2013-14 fiscal year audit reports and some late-filed 2012-13 fiscal year audit reports, please refer to the Committee's meeting packet for November 30, 2015, beginning on page 42. For a comprehensive list of all entities reported to the Committee, based on the Auditor General's review of 2012-13 fiscal year audit reports, please refer to the Committee's meeting packet for February 16, 2015, beginning on page 242.
