FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

 

NO MONITORING OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS EXPENDITURES

 

The Center did not review telecommunications charges during the examination period.

 

The Center had no process in place to review telecommunication expenditures for reasonableness and necessity. Telecommunications expenditures totaled $171,848 for fiscal years 2004 and 2003.

 

The Center had an on-line system for tracking telephone calls. This system, which would allow management to review staff telephone use, was not functioning during the examination period. Management stated that the system had crashed in fiscal year 2002 and that they did not have sufficient funds to repair the system. (Finding 1, Page 10)

 

We recommended that the Center maintain a telephone log that tracks overall telephone use and long distance calls.

 

In their response to our recommendation, the Center stated that in September 2004, an automated telephone monitoring system was implemented.

 

AUDITORS' OPINION

 

We conducted a limited scope compliance examination of the Center as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act. We also performed certain agreed-upon procedures with respect to the accounting records of the Center to assist our examination of the entire Department. Financial statements for the Department will be presented in that report.
