Report on a Single Audit of the State of Montana, Helena, MT

Self-Initiated
Project ID: 
SA2018079

What We Looked At
We reviewed the State of Montana’s single audit report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017, in order to identify findings that affect directly awarded Department of Transportation programs. An independent auditor prepared the single audit report, dated March 19, 2018. 

What We Found
We found that the report contained cash management, subrecipient monitoring, activities allowed or unallowed, special tests and provisions, and reporting findings that need prompt action from the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) management. 

Recommendations
We recommend that FHWA ensures that the State complies with the cash management, subrecipient monitoring, activities allowed or unallowed, and special tests and provisions requirements. We recommend that FTA ensures that the State complies with the reporting requirements. We also recommend that FHWA recovers $1,043,000 from State, if applicable.
