Please find attached a copy of the full audit report and a summary of the report. The summary will be published on the department's website in the coming weeks, along with this management letter. Should you wish to, you may provide a written response to me, pertaining to this audit within 30 days. Your response will also be posted.
As a result of this recipient audit, a non-compliant amount had been identified and has been recovered.
The audit report also included a number of recommendations to assist in improving management practices. We look forward to working together to develop a plan to address the management recommendations.
