Administering & Auditing Government Funding
The Department of Health Services (DHS) contracts with counties,
tribes, school districts, boards, and a number of non-profit organizations for the administration of the
programs. These contracts require these agencies to follow the
department's administration and auditing requirements in the Financial
Management Manual. Audits of these agencies and department programs
are to be conducted by certified public accountants and accounting firms
in accordance with federal and state audit requirements.
This web site provides information for agencies and auditors on DHS
