EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

This final report provides the results of our review of Ceiling for Enhanced Federal Financial Participation Exceeded by the Missouri Department of Social Services. We found that the Missouri Department of Social Services (State) claimed $207,466 in excess of the allowable ceiling established by the Administration for Children and Families for enhanced Federal funding. Specifically, the State claimed developmental costs totaling $46,824,330 at the enhanced Federal Financial Participation rate, when the State was limited to $46,616,864. We are recommending the State make a prior period adjustment to reduce its quarterly claim. State officials did not provide a response to our report.
