FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

 

EXPENDITURES LACK ADEQUATE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION

 

†††† Center expenditures for the Inmate Commissary Fund lacked supporting documentation. Eleven of 25 (44%) vouchers tested totaling $6,971 did not have purchase orders/orders for delivery forms to support expenditures.†††††††††††††††††††††††††

Approvals for disbursements were not evident on the vendor invoices.(Finding 1, page 10)

 

†††† Center officials accepted our recommendation to ensure that all disbursements be adequately supported and that approval signatures be evident on the face of the supporting documents.

 

INADEQUATE CONTRACT MONITORING OF MEDICAL SERVICE PROVIDERS

 

†††† The Center did not adequately monitor its medical service providers.Amounts paid to major medical service providers in FY 2006 and FY 2005 totaled $3,271,738 and $3,054,852, respectively.

 

†††† We tested all the Centerís FY 2005 quarterly reports required for monitoring major medical contractors.Five of 10 (50%) were not prepared.For FY 2006, quarterly reports were not prepared for two of its major medical contractors.The Centerís Monitoring Coordinator did prepare monthly flash reports that contained some of the required information; however, these reports do not comply with the full reporting requirements for contractual services. (Finding 2, pages 11-12)

 

†††† The Center accepted our recommendation to adequately monitor its contracts for services by preparing and submitting quarterly reports in accordance with the requirement of the Administrative Directive.

 

 

 

 

AUDITORíS OPINION

 

††††††† We conducted a compliance attestation examination ofthe Center as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act.This was a limited scope compliance examination that also included performing certain auditing procedures with respect to the accounting records of the Center to assist our audit of the entire Department of Corrections.Financial statements for the entire Department will be presented in that report.
