INTRODUCTION

This was the first audit of the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority. The Authority was created by the Illinois Violence Prevention Act of 1995 (20 ILCS 4027/10) to coordinate Statewide violence prevention efforts and develop a statewide plan that incorporates public health and public safety approaches to violence prevention in families, communities, and schools. The Authority has one special revenue fund, the Illinois Violence Prevention Fund, which is held in the State treasury to receive funds from private, state or federal sources specifically for violence prevention.

There were no material findings of noncompliance disclosed by our audit tests. We commend the Authority for its efforts in maintaining an effective system of internal controls.

AUDITORS’ OPINION

Our auditors stated the Authority’s financial statements for the one year ended June 30, 1998 were fairly presented except for the effects of such adjustments, if any, as might have been determined to be necessary had they been able to examine evidence regarding year 2000 disclosures.
