Executive Summary

In accordance with Section 12 of Chapter 11 of the Massachusetts General Laws, the Office of the State Auditor has conducted a performance audit of the Office of Court Interpreter Services (OCIS) within the Executive Office of the Trial Court for the period November 15, 2019 through October 31, 2020. When performing our test of hiring of interpreters, we extended our audit period back through April 1, 2018 to obtain a sufficient population to reasonably conclude on the audit objective. In this performance audit, we examined OCIS’s compliance with Section 9.01 of the 2009 Standards and Procedures of the Office of Court Interpreter Services regarding interpreter scheduling and Sections 5.02 and 5.03a–5.03e of the same document regarding the hiring of qualified interpreters.

Our audit revealed no significant instances of noncompliance by OCIS that must be reported under generally accepted government auditing standards.
