In accordance with Section 12 of Chapter 11 of the Massachusetts General Laws, the Office of the State Auditor has performed an audit of the Bristol County Division of the Superior Court Department (BCSC) for the period July 1, 2017 through December 31, 2018. In this performance audit, we followed up on issues identified in our previous audit of BCSC (No. 2014-1119-3J) to determine what measures, if any, BCSC’s management has taken to address them. During the prior audit, we examined BCSC activities related to the cash received, the safeguarding of evidence and case files in the Clerk of Courts’ Office, and the adequacy of BCSC’s internal control plan.
Based on our audit, we have concluded that BCSC has established adequate controls and complied with applicable laws, regulations, policies, procedures, and other guidance in the areas reviewed. We did not identify any significant deficiencies in those areas.
