As required by the Omnibus Audit Accountability Act of 2006 (Accountability Act), the California State Auditor (State Auditor) presents our report on the status of recommendations that are more than one year old and have not been fully implemented by the audited entities.

State Entities

From November 2013 through October 2019, the State Auditor issued 219 reports that related to audits or investigations of state agencies. These reports were requested through the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, legislation, or as the result of an investigation. The State Auditor made 1732 recommendations to the audited state agencies in those reports, of which 1439 have been fully implemented. However, the State Auditor identified 293 recommendations made to 45 agencies that had been outstanding at least one year and remain not fully implemented as of November 2020.
