Report Materials


The objective of this review was to determine whether the State:  (1) properly recorded, summarized and reported bioterrorism preparedness transactions by specific focus area designated in the cooperative agreements; and (2) established controls and procedures to monitor subrecipients expenditures of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funds.  We found that the State generally accounted for the Program funds in accordance with the terms and conditions of the cooperative agreement and applicable departmental regulations and guidelines.  We recommended that the State implement the random audit component and address problem areas as they are identified to ensure adequate oversight of subrecipients.  The auditee concurred.
