Audit Abstract

The three agencies we reviewed fully implemented two of the six recommendations made in our prior audit reports. As part of a 2016 audit of the Department for Children and Families’ (DCF) policies and procedures to ensure the safety of children, we found problems related to background checks and monthly in-person visits and issued two recommendations. We determined the department partially implemented one recommendation and fully implemented the other. As part of a 2015 audit to follow up on safety issues at the Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex (KJCC), we found continued issues with supervision of juvenile offenders, tool inventory and destruction, and tracking of disciplinary actions and issued three recommendations. We determined KJCC fully implemented one recommendation and partially implemented two recommendations. As part of a 2015 audit to follow-up on issues related to the Kansas Department of Education’s (KSDE) oversight of virtual schools, we found two additional issues related to oversight and issued one recommendation. We determined KSDE partially implemented the recommendation.
