The audit found no deficiencies in its administration of the Adult Diversion (YADP) and Victim Witness Assistance (VWAP) Programs, but notes that its current case management system, known as the District Attorney Management Information Office Network (DAMION), is not well-suited to track and report on many aspects of the criminal justice system. The audit examined the period of July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2020.

Audit Audit of the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office (MDAO)
|Organization:||Office of the State Auditor|
|Date published:||June 17, 2021|
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 Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office (MDAO) for the period July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2020. In this performance audit, we examined MDAO’s compliance with Section 5 of Chapter 258B of the General Laws for the Victim Witness Assistance Program, as well as its administration of the Young Adult Diversion Program (YADP). There are no legislative or regulatory requirements for the operation of YADP, so our examination focused on existing MDAO policies and procedures.
Our audit revealed no significant instances of noncompliance by MDAO that must be reported under generally accepted government auditing standards.
