RE: H.C.R. No. 102

 

 

 

 

Honorable Scott K. Saiki

Speaker, House of Representatives

Twenty-Ninth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2018

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Health & Human Services, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 102 entitled:

 

"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE AUDITOR TO CONDUCT A PERFORMANCE AND MANAGEMENT AUDIT OF THE ADULT PROTECTIVE AND COMMUNITY SERVICES BRANCH OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to request the Auditor to conduct a performance and management audit of the Adult Protective and Community Services Branch of the Department of Human Services to assess the Branch's compliance with laws, policies, and procedures related to investigations, service provisions, client protections, and oversight.

 

The Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawaii submitted testimony in support of this measure. The Department of Human Services provided comments.

 

Your Committee notes that the Department of Human Services commented that an audit of the Adult Protective Services Program is not necessary at this time.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Health & Human Services that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 102 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.

 

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health & Human Services,
