Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich announced today that the Missouri Department of Mental Health has "made improvements" after a follow-up of their December 2010 audit.
The "follow-up" is a first for Schweich's office.
According to a press release from the Auditor's office:
In the 2010 audit of DMH, the auditor's office found that for the 3 years ended June 30, 2010, DMH paid employees approximately $47.8 million in overtime department-wide.
A state review of University City made public today gives the municipality a "C" when it comes to its management practices.
The report by Missouri auditor Tom Schweich, which covered June 2009 to June 2010, found several instances where the city failed to follow best practices. For example:
An audit released today finds that several state agencies in Missouri have not adequately kept track of how federal stimulus dollars are being spent.
The state has spent about $2.6 billion in money received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
