Controls Over Certain Local District State Aid Claims (Follow-Up Review)

Certain social services in New York State are administered by 58 local districts that are overseen by the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. In our prior audit report 95-S-29, we examined the administration of selected services in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. We found that, because of certain internal control weaknesses in the administration of these services, unauthorized services could be provided and payment could be made for services that were not in fact provided. In our follow-up review, we found that some progress has been made in correcting these internal control weaknesses; however, further progress is needed if the controls are to be adequate.
