Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Follow-up

An old scale and different dollar bills in the background.

We found the Department of Public Safety fully implemented all recommendations and mitigated the risks identified during the original audit. As a result, we conclude our follow-up effort related to the “Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant” audit.

Because the Department of Public Safety took action to prioritize timely grant reporting, it can help ensure grant-related activities are monitored to meet grant requirements and achieve performance expectations for the programs that keep Denver residents safe. Additionally, because it has confirmed that subrecipients are reported accurately, Public Safety can help ensure subrecipients are monitored in compliance with grant requirements.

In keeping with generally accepted government auditing standards and Auditor’s Office policy, as authorized by city ordinance, the Audit Services Division has a responsibility to monitor and follow up on audit recommendations to ensure city agencies address audit findings through appropriate corrective action and to aid us in planning future audits.

In our follow-up effort for the “Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant” audit report issued in August 2020, we determined the Department of Public Safety fully implemented all of the recommendations it agreed to in the original audit report.

The Highlights page in this report provides background and summary information about the original audit and the completed follow-up effort. Following the Highlights page is a detailed implementation status update for each recommendation.

I would like to express our sincere appreciation to the personnel at the Department of Public Safety who assisted us throughout the audit and the follow-up process. For any questions, please feel free to contact me at 720-913-5000.
