We provided unmodified audit opinions on the State of Wisconsin’s FY 2017-18 financial statements. These statements are included in the State’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, which is prepared by the Department of Administration (DOA). We report a material weakness in internal control over financial reporting related to infrastructure at the Department of Transportation. In addition, we report significant deficiencies related to information technology security concerns at DOA and the Department of Employee Trust Funds and make recommendations for improvement. We also identified significant deficiencies related to financial reporting at DOA, the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance, and the Department of Health Services and recommend these agencies take steps to address the deficiencies we identified.
