2019 Annual Report

Posted on Nov 24, 2020 in Annual Report

Last year we published audit reports on agencies such as the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation, the Department of Land and Natural Resources, and the Department of Education, and on subjects such as the Department of Health’s Deposit Beverage Container Program, and Mandatory Health Insurance for Clinical Victim Support Services for Victims of Sexual Violence and Abuse.


We reviewed 29 funds and accounts administered by the Judiciary – specifically, 6 special funds, 2 revolving funds, 17 trust funds, and 4 trust accounts. We found 1 special fund and 1 trust fund did not meet criteria. We recommended the special fund, which does not appear to be financially self-sustaining, be repealed and the trust fund be reclassified to a special fund.


We reviewed 13 funds and accounts administered by the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) – specifically, 4 special funds, 2 revolving funds, 6 trust funds, and 1 trust account. We found 1 trust fund did not meet criteria and should be reclassified to a trust account.

The auditors from KPMG LLP found no deficiencies in internal control over financial reporting that were considered to be material weaknesses and no instances of noncompliance or other matters that are required to be reported under Government Auditing Standards.


This report presents the status of agencies’ implementation of recommendations made by our office. Status was determined both through an independent, “active review” by our office and through formal requests to the agencies for a report of implementation status and steps taken toward implementation. This report covers recommendations made within the last five years, in reports issued from 2015-2018.
