Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services

Contract with the Outreach Development Corporation

The Corporation provided youths with residential substance abuse treatment programs. We determined that a refund of $181,115 was due the State from the $6.4 million paid to the Corporation, mainly because some of the expenses claimed by the Corporation exceeded authorized amounts, were not documented, or did not relate to the contract. We also found that, contrary to contract terms, the Corporation sought reimbursement from the State before other available funding was used. We recommend that this available funding be applied to the Corporation's current State contract.
