• The Office did not timely prepare and file all required reports, did not record equipment purchases on its inventory timely, and did not post quarterly reports on its website.
FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS
During our testing of the Office of the Legislative Inspector General (Office), we noted procedural deficiencies. Some of the conditions we noted follow:
• The Office did not prepare or file Fiscal Control and Internal Auditing Act (FCIAA) certifications with the Office of the Auditor General for Fiscal Years 2009 and 2010.
• The Office submitted 2 of 4 (50%) Travel Headquarters (TA-2) reports to the Legislative Audit Commission 63 and 244 days late, respectively.
• The Office did not timely record the purchase of 3 equipment items, totaling $433, on its property control listing. These items were recorded from 73 to 124 days late.
• The Office did not post quarterly reports to its website pursuant to State statute. While the Office did prepare and submit quarterly reports to the General Assembly as required, the Office did not make copies of the quarterly reports available on its Internet site as required. (Finding 1, pages 8-10)
We recommended the Office ensure all required reports are prepared and filed timely as required. We also recommended the Office ensure property items are added to inventory records timely. Lastly, we recommended the Office post its quarterly reports on its World Wide Web page as required.
The Office accepted our recommendation and is working with the Legislative Ethics Commission to implement corrective action.
We conducted a compliance examination of the Office as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act. The Office has no funds that require an audit leading to an opinion on financial statements.
