State of Texas' Efforts to Account for and Monitor Sub-Recipients' Use of Public Health Preparedness and Response for Bioterrorism Program Funds [open pdf - 241KB]
"The objective of this review was to determine whether: (1) the Texas Department of Health properly recorded, summarized and reported Public Health Preparedness and Response for Bioterrorism Program costs by specific focus area designated in cooperative agreements; (2) program funding supplanted programs previously provided by other organizational sources; and (3) the Department of Health had established controls and procedures to monitor subrecipients' expenditures of program funds. We noted one problem. At the start of 2003, Department of Health officials identified a problem with the payroll allocation that, if not corrected, could affect the accuracy of the year 3 financial status report due November 30, 2003. Officials at the Department of Health stated they should have the problem corrected in the next 2 or 3 months."
