Six-Month Responses from Agencies

Six months after the release of an Auditor General or Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability (OPPAGA) report most state agencies are required by s. 20.055(6)(h), F.S., to provide the Joint Legislative Auditing Committee (Committee) with a report on the status of corrective actions taken in response to findings and recommendations contained within the report. This requirement applies to departments created pursuant to Chapter 20 of the Florida Statutes, and the Executive Office of the Governor, the Department of Military Affairs, the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Office of Insurance Regulation, the Office of Financial Regulation, the Public Service Commission, the Board of Governors of the State University System, the Florida Housing Finance Corporation, the Agency for State Technology, the Office of Early Learning, and the state courts system [see s. 20.055(1)(d), F.S.].

Agencies should submit six-month reports electronically to jlac@leg.state.fl.us. If an Auditor General or OPPAGA report does not contain any recommendations directed at your agency, a six-month report is not necessary. Reports received by the Committee may be accessed below.
