1. Presentation of Audit Findings from KPMG and the Comptroller of Public Accounts.

Edward Seidenberg presented audit findings from KPMG and the Comptroller of Public Accounts.  The auditing firm of KPMG audited the agency’s Library Services and Technology Act funds as part of the statewide audit of federal funds.  They made two recommendations, neither of which caused any costs to be questioned.   The agency concurred with both recommendations and has taken corrective action.   The Comptroller of Public Accounts conducted a Post-Payment audit of the agency and identified five items that have been corrected.

No action being required by the committee, Audit Chairman Holland adjourned the committee meeting at 12:05 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,


Peggy D. Rudd

Director and Librarian
