The single audit of the State of Connecticut reported that (1) indirect costs were not equitably allocated to Federal programs, including SSA. In addition, expenditures were not correctly allocated to Federal and State programs in accordance with the federally approved cost allocation plan because of expenditure coding problems.
The single audit of the State of Delaware reported that DOL lacked segregation of duties within the Federal cash drawdown process.
For the State of Connecticut, we recommend that SSA ensure that indirect costs are being equitably allocated to the Connecticut DDS, and verify that DSS implemented expenditure coding procedures that will ensure only allowable costs are charged to its programs.
For the State of Delaware, we recommend that SSA verify that DOL’s policies and procedures provide a proper segregation of duties within the Federal cash drawdown process
