A follow-up review from the state Office of the Legislative Auditor found weaknesses in the Department of Human Services’ (DHS’s) “integrity controls” for Minnesota’s Child Care Assistance Program or C-CAP. The report concludes that DHS and local human services agencies must do more to effectively prevent, detect and investigate fraud in CCAP. The program has been under scrutiny over claims of fraud, which an earlier Auditor’s report confirmed as “pervasive.” Republican lawmakers accuse Democrats of refusing to hold hearings on that initial report and are calling on Dems to take action and “show Minnesotans they take this issue seriously.” Democrats have not yet responded. The report can be seen in full here.
