Recommendations Not Fully Implemented After One Year: The Omnibus Audit Accountability Act of 2006
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.
From November 2014 through October 2020, the State Auditor issued 208 reports that related to audits or investigations of state agencies. These reports were requested through the Joint Legislative Audit Committee or legislation, were initiated by the State Auditor through the state high-risk program, or came about as the result of an investigation. The State Auditor made 1,623 recommendations to the audited state agencies in those reports, of which 1,336 have been fully implemented. However, the State Auditor identified 287 recommendations made to 46 agencies that had been outstanding at least one year and remain not fully implemented as of November 2021.
From November 2014 through October 2020, the state auditor issued 83 reports that included nonstate entities, and made 823 recommendations to these entities. As of November 2021, the State Auditor identified 176 recommendations issued to 51 nonstate entities that are more than one year old and not fully implemented.
