Findings and Recommendations

Matters from the current audit

Improve financial reporting processes

Background

The Department of Environment and Parks has a difficult financial reporting task. The department frequently makes changes to its financial statements as a result of government reorganization decisions made by the legislative assembly. For many of the financial processes, the department relies on reporting systems that are outside its control. There are multiple departmental revenue streams which are handled by other entities within the government. As well, the department experienced significant turnover in key financial reporting staff in the current year.
