Office of Inspector General audit on Homeland Security program - status update

The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS) was audited on Fiscal Year 2010 - 2014 grants by the Office of Inspector General in the summer of 2013. The following information is the current result of the audit. This audit is an open audit – meaning that WOHS is still working with subgrantees, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) to supply any additional information needed to resolve questions that arose during the audit. We anticipate the recommendations to be resolved in Sept. of 2014. For the full status update click here.
