To determine the extent of implementation of the three recommendations included in our initial audit report, Contract with Daytop Village, Inc. (Report 2008-R-1).
The Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) oversees programs for preventing and treating alcohol and substance abuse. Many of these programs are provided by not-for-profit organizations under contracts administered by OASAS. One such contract is with Daytop Village, Inc. (Daytop), under which OASAS paid Daytop about $97 million through the end of 2009. We found that Daytop did not fulfill its fiscal responsibilities under the contract and as a result, OASAS paid Daytop $11.5 million more than it was entitled to. The objective of our follow-up was to assess the extent of implementation, as of October 2012, of the three recommendations included in our initial report.
- OASAS officials have made progress in addressing the matters identified in our initial report. Of the three prior audit recommendations, one was implemented, and two have been partially implemented.
- Officials are given 30 days after the issuance of the follow-up review to provide information on any actions that are planned to address the unresolved issues discussed in this review.
