INTRODUCTION

†††††

††††† The Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) - Shapiro Developmental Center (Center) is located at 100 East Jeffrey Street, Kankakee, Illinois.The Center was established in the late 1800ís as a mental health center but has served individuals with developmental disabilities since May 10, 1974.

 

 

FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

NONCOMPLIANCE WITH PURCHASING REQUIREMENTS

 

††††††††††† The Center did not follow applicable purchasing requirements when it purchased a vehicle with its Other Special Trust Fund, a locally held fund.

 

††††††††††† The Center purchased a 2004 Ford/Braun Para-transit shuttle van totaling $35,812 directly from an outside vendor using funds from its Other Special Trust Fund.†† The Center did not file purchase requests with the Department of Central Management Services (DCMS) and the Department of Human Services Ė Central Office (DHS) as required prior to the purchase nor did the Center follow the Illinois Procurement Code when purchasing the vehicle.(Finding 1, pages 9 and 10)

 

††††††††††† We recommended that the Center follow DHS administrative procedures and the Illinois Administrative Code when purchasing vehicles.

 

††††††††††† Center officials agreed with this finding and stated the Center is now following DHS requirements and the Illinois Administrative Code for the purchase of vehicles.

 

INADEQUATE CONTROLS OVER PHARMACY INVENTORY

†††††

††††† The Center did not maintain adequate controls over its pharmacy inventory.  

 

 

 


Test counts for 16 of 25 (64%) pharmacy items did not agree to agency records

††††† During a physical inventory of the pharmacy inventory, we noted sixteen of 25 (64%) tested pharmacy drug counts did not agree with the Centerís Commodity Control System Commodity Status Report.(Finding 2, page 11)

 

††††† We recommended the Center establish controls over its pharmacy inventories to ensure that all inventory is properly counted.Further, we recommended the Center comply with Department of Human Services policies and procedures by comparing physical inventory counts to quantities recorded in the commodities system periodically, and that differences be investigated.

 

††††† Center officials agreed with this finding and stated that in FY05, pharmacy operations were transferred to Central Office.The Bureau of Pharmacy and Clinical Services has reviewed and corrected the input error in the Central Office commodity control system that resulted in this finding.Pharmacy bureau staff will be responsible for reviewing future inventory adjustments for accuracy

†††††††††††

††††††††††† Responses to the recommendations were provided by Carol L. Adams, Secretary of the Department of Human Services in a letter dated January 27, 2006.

 

AUDITORSí OPINION

 

††††† We conducted a limited scope compliance examination of the Center as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act.Financial statements for the entire Department of Human Services will be presented in the Departmentís audit report.
