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 Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office (SCDAO) for the period July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019. In this performance audit, we examined SCDAO’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 Juvenile Alternative Resolution (JAR) Program. There are no regulatory requirements for SCDAO to operate the JAR Program, so our examination focused on existing SCDAO policies.

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