Full report in PDF format

  • The program and the Legislature have begun implementing many of the recommendations from our 1999 report.  The program is collecting more information electronically, but still collects too much information in paper form. The program is becoming more proactive in recommending legislation and policy changes and has boosted oversight.  Recommendations implemented to date have saved about $3.6 million annually.
  • However, several other recommendations to streamline the program, which would save about $6.7 million annually, have not been implemented.
