Dear Governor and Legislative Leaders:
As required by California Government Code, Section 8543 et seq., the State Auditor’s Office presents its audit report concerning our review of the State of California’s internal controls and compliance with state regulations for the year ended June 30, 2015.
This report concludes that the State continues to experience certain deficiencies in its accounting and administrative practices that affect its internal controls over financial reporting. We identified one deficiency in internal control over financial reporting that we consider to be a material weakness. Deficiencies in the State’s internal control system could adversely affect its ability to provide accurate financial information.
