• The Office did not comply with the Fiscal Control and Internal Auditing Act.
FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS
NONCOMPLIANCE WITH THE FISCAL CONTROL AND INTERNAL AUDITING ACT.
The Office of Executive Inspector General (Office) did not comply with the Fiscal Control and Internal Auditing Act (FCIAA). The Office did not perform an evaluation of internal controls or prepare and file its FCIAA certification with the Office of the Auditor General during Fiscal Year 2008. In addition, the Office did not timely file its FCIAA certification for Fiscal Year 2009. The Fiscal Year 2009 report was due on May 1, 2009 but was not filed until July 6, 2009, which is 67 days late.
We recommended the Office perform timely evaluations of its systems of internal fiscal and administrative controls and timely file annual certifications with the Auditor General as required by the FCIAA. (Finding 1, page 9)
The Office of Executive Inspector agreed with this finding and reported taking steps to ensure future compliance with the requirement.
We conducted a compliance examination of the Office of Executive Inspector General as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act. We have not audited any financial statements of the Office of Executive Inspector General for the purpose of expressing an opinion because the Office of Executive Inspector General does not, nor is it required to, prepare financial statements.
WILLIAM G. HOLLAND, Auditor General
The compliance examination was conducted by the Auditor General’s staff.
