Policy

It is the responsibility of every state agency to address deficiencies or weaknesses identified through an audit on a timely basis.

Procedures

Each state agency shall develop a corrective action plan for each audit finding.  Corrective action means action taken by the auditee to: 1) correct an identified deficiency or weakness; 2) implement improvements that mitigate risk; or 3) demonstrate that the audit findings are either invalid or do not warrant auditee action.  Agency management shall take appropriate measures to ensure timely resolution of each audit finding.

As part of our compliance monitoring efforts, the Office of the State Controller will review reports issued by (but not limited to) a Federal or State audit agency.  OSC may request that a state agency submit their corrective action plan and/or supporting documentation for review. The audit review process is a critical component of the Office of the State Controller’s compliance monitoring efforts.
