The audit found that the Office of State Budget and Management’s North Carolina Pandemic Recovery Office did not design and implement procedures to ensure that State Fiscal Recovery Funds were being spent in accordance with State Fiscal Recovery Fund legislation or that programs operated by recipients of State Fiscal Recovery Funds were achieving their legislatively intended results. As a result, there was an increased risk that recipients could have misused the funds without the misuse being detected and corrected timely. Additionally, NCPRO was limited in its ability to know whether funds were achieving legislatively intended results and take timely corrective action if necessary. Details about each item are provided in the Findings, Recommendations, and Responses section of the report. The agency agreed with the results of the audit. However, to ensure that readers are not misled, the report includes a State Auditor’s Response.
