Full report in PDF format

The Department has taken some steps that we recommended, and these actions have reduced its funding needs by approximately $1.3 million. However, additional steps are feasible that would produce further general revenue savings from $495,000 in program cost reductions and another $72,000 in new revenues. The Department has proposed outcome measures for its programs but needs to develop a comprehensive marketing plan.
