Today, the Legislative Audit Bureau (LAB) released the annual financial audit of the State of Wisconsin. The audit reveals state agencies administered almost $15 billion of federal financial assistance during fiscal year 2010-11. $2.8 billion was received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The LAB finds overall state agencies have complied with federal grant requirements and recommends 58 ways to improve administering federal funds.
