The Commission had controls to ensure that it monitored grants and grant recipients. For all 30 fiscal year 2016 grants tested, the Commission obtained
required reports from grant recipients on their uses of grant funds, reviewed the reports using a standard checklist, and followed up with grant recipients
to resolve any issues. In addition, the Commission performed site visits at selected grant recipients. However, the Commission should strengthen its grant monitoring process.
The Commission should consistently obtain prior reports that are due from grant recipients before making payments for new grants to those same grant recipients.
The Commission had a process to assess risks and perform site visits to grant recipients; however, it should ensure that it performs site visits to grant recipients that it identifies as higher risk.
