Boston — Today State Auditor Suzanne Bump released a summary of post-audit accountability reports from the third and fourth quarters of FY12, which show select audit work that has the potential to produce $39.6 million in fiscal benefit for the Commonwealth. The reports are part of an accountability initiative introduced in 2011 to monitor how audited agencies are acting on her recommendations. Since the initiative’s introduction, the reports have identified $52.4 million in potential savings.
“The public expects the agencies and vendors that we audit to take action on our recommendations and findings,” said Auditor Bump. “These reports demonstrate how our audits save taxpayer dollars. I applaud the auditees for their responsive actions. Together we are making government work better.”
Post-audit review surveys are issued six months after the release of an audit with findings of financial or operation deficiencies. Today’s reports give a progress update on 40 post-audit reviews out of 41 audits conducted. Actions taken by agencies range from operational changes to recoveries of improper payments to vendors.
Among the actions reported are:
Post-audit reviews are self-reported information that is unaudited. The Office of The State Auditor (OSA) makes no claims as to the accuracy of the information. Since it is subject to future audits and public disclosure, it is in an auditee’s best interest to provide the OSA with forthright and accurate responses.
