EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

The objectives of this audit were to determine whether the New York Health Department and its grant administrator ensured that a mental health provider provided the expected level of service to CARE Act Title I eligible clients and followed Federal requirements for charging costs to the CARE Act Title I program.  The provider did not achieve the levels of service originally expected as part of the fiscal year 2001 contract; however, it worked with the Health Departmentís grant administrator to tailor services to better meet the needs of persons living with HIV/AIDS.  In addition, the provider generally followed Federal requirements for charging costs to the CARE Act Title I program.  As a result of the low service levels, the providerís clients may not have received all of the services they needed during fiscal year 2001; however, by the end of the fiscal year, appropriate actions had been taken to better meet the clientsí needs.  The Health Department generally concurred with the facts presented in the report.
