Quality of Internal Control Certification

The Department of Transportation maintains and regulates various types of transportation systems in the State. State agencies and public authorities must annually certify their compliance with important provisions of internal control. We examined the adequacy of the Departmentís certification of compliance for the year ended March 31, 2008 and found that certain improvements were needed in the Departmentís certification process. For example, some of the information in the certification was not supported by documentation maintained by the Department. In addition, we found that the Departmentís internal audit function was not sufficiently independent of its internal control function.
