Administering and 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 Department's 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 requirements for administering and auditing government funding.
