We provided unmodified audit opinions on the State of Wisconsin’s FY 2020-21 financial statements. These financial statements are included in the State’s Annual Comprehensive Financial Report, which is prepared by the Department of Administration (DOA).
We report three significant deficiencies in internal control related to information technology security at DOA, the Department of Workforce Development (DWD), and the University of Wisconsin System. We report an additional significant deficiency in internal control at DWD related to its use of a predictive analytics model for the Unemployment Insurance Program. We make recommendations to these agencies to address the deficiencies we identified, and we report on certain other matters of interest related to the State’s activities in FY 2020-21.
