Our objective was to determine whether Vermont reimbursed the Federal Government for its share of collected AFDC overpayments for the period October 2001 through March 2005. Vermont did not comply with Federal requirements for reimbursing the Federal share of collected AFDC overpayments. Vermont collected $66,781 ($40,650 Federal share) during the audit period. However, Vermont did not return the Federal share of the recovered overpayments to ACF. We recommended that Vermont reimburse the Federal Government $40,650 for its share of collected AFDC overpayments and implement written policies and procedures to ensure that the Federal Government receives its share of AFDC collections. In comments to our draft report, Vermont agreed with our finding and recommendations.
