Legislative leaders and Comptroller Nancy Wyman announced today that the Comptroller’s office will conduct an audit of DSS to eliminate waste and over-budgeting. Specific concerns include difficulties tracking expenses, over $100 million in DSS carry-forward requests, turmoil in the HUSKY program, start up costs of the Charter Oak Health Plan, and funds appropriated for programs that are not implemented or partially implemented such as delays in securing disease management, PCCM and medical interpreting services. The Appropriations and Finance Committees will hold a joint fiscal accountability meeting on November 18th.
