Health Research, Inc.: Disbursements of Discretionary Funds

Health Research, Inc. (HRI) is a not-for-profit corporation that administers funding which supports or extends the programs and research activities of the Department of Health. HRIís discretionary funds are generated by its investments, contract fees and technology transfers. We examined HRIís controls over the disbursements made with these funds and found that improvements were needed. For example, written policies and procedures had not been developed for some types of disbursements, and other types of disbursements did not always comply with the policies and procedures that were developed.
