Full report in PDF format

  • The Department of State has made progress in improving the administration of its cultural and historical programs.  The department has begun to streamline its grants process by eliminating several grant review panels, and continues to express interest in developing a fully electronic grants system.  In addition, it has created the Office of the Deputy Secretary for Cultural and Historical Programs to bring the department closer to a collaborative vision for Florida’s cultural and historical programs. 
  • The cultural and historical programs need to continue to improve their performance measurement and planning systems, as well as the efficiency of their grants processes.  In addition, the department needs to continue to take steps to ensure adequate oversight and maintenance of state-owned historic properties.
