Colorado Disability Determination Services Administrative Cost Reporting

January 04, 2016

Office Affiliation: The Office of Audit

Audit Report Number: A-06-15-50033

We conducted this review at the request of the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Denver Regional Office. The Colorado Disability Determination Services (CO-DDS) performs disability determinations under the Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income programs. SSA reimburses CO-DDS for 100 percent of allowable reported expenditures up to its approved funding authorization. Once approved, CO-DDS’ parent Agency, the Colorado Department of Human Services (CO-DHS), withdraws Federal funds through ASAP.

The State may not incur or make expenditures in excess of the amount SSA makes available to the State. Additionally, State agencies should control the rate of expenditures throughout the FY and take precautions to safeguard against over-expenditures of SSA’s budget for disability program operations.
