UNDATED (WSAU) A report from the Legislative Audit Bureau shows Wisconsin agencies spent nearly $13-billion in federal assistance money last fiscal year. The money was distributed through more than 2,000 federal programs and grants.
Though the audit shows the agencies generally complied with federal guidelines, it was noted those guidelines weren’t followed in the awarding of community development block grants.
Auditors say the Department of Children and Families continues to overcharge the federal government for the money it passes on to adopted children. And, they say the Department of Transportation is still working to correct some reporting and record-keeping failings.
