State Auditor Tom Schweich today released the Summary of Follow-Up Reports for 2012. Schweich is the first state auditor to implement a follow-up program on audited entities that receive a "fair" or "poor" rating from his auditors. The Follow-Up Team was created when he learned that many audited entities were ignoring the recommendations made by the auditor's office, and they go in after an audit has taken place and requests a status update. In 2012, Schweich's office issued 22 AFTER reports. Of the 223 recommendations included in the follow-up reports, 91 had a status of implemented, 68 had a status of in progress, 35 had a status of partially implemented, and 29 had a status of not implemented.
