The Utah State Fair is underperforming according to a new report by the Office of the Utah State Auditor. The limited performance audit compared the Utah State Fair with several other state fairs around the country. It specifically focused on similar fairs held in Arizona, Idaho, and New Mexico. David Pulsipher is the performance audit director.
A state audit released this week shows that the Utah Department of Workforce Services has cut down on errors enrolling people for benefits and training, and is doing a much better job complying with federal regulations. A previous state audit of the Department showed a consistent pattern of non-compliance, resulting in millions of dollars in questioned costs.
The state auditor’s office released a report this week showing that many agencies don’t have internal auditors even when the law requires them.
State law requires 11 state departments to have internal auditors, and a new report from the state auditor’s office says four of them do not – Agriculture, Commerce, Environmental Quality and Public Safety.
