The Texas Lottery Commission (Agency) has fully or substantially implemented 14 (93 percent) of 15 recommendations that auditors selected for follow-up from An Audit Report on the Charitable Bingo Operations Division at the Texas Lottery Commission (State Auditor's Office Report No. 11-002, September 2010). Its implementation of the remaining recommendation was incomplete/ongoing.
Of the 14 recommendations fully or substantially implemented:
- The Agency fully implemented two recommendations regarding increasing the scope and number of financial audits it performs at bingo halls.
- The Agency fully or substantially implemented two recommendations regarding policies and procedures to ensure that its licensing files were complete.
- The Agency fully or substantially implemented ten recommendations regarding strengthening controls over its Automated Charitable Bingo System (ACBS).
While the Agency has made significant progress in implementing most of the prior audit recommendations, it has not limited access rights to ACBS for five programmers who have the ability to edit and delete records.
Auditors communicated other, less significant issues to the Agency's management separately in writing.
