Legislative Audit Bureau
December 5, 2000
The Honorable, The Senate:
We have completed a financial audit of the Unemployment Reserve Fund for fiscal years 1999-2000 and 1998-99. This audit was performed at the request of the Department of Workforce Development, which administers the Fund.
As necessary parts of the financial audit, we reviewed the Fund's control procedures, assessed the fair presentation of its financial statements, and reviewed compliance with applicable laws and regulations. We were able to provide an unqualified auditor's report on the Fund's financial statement, and we found no instances of material weaknesses in the internal control structure or material instances of noncompliance.
The Unemployment Reserve Fund's cash balance related to taxable employers increased $83 million during the past fiscal year, to nearly $1.8 billion as of June 30, 2000. This cash balance is used to determine the tax rate schedule to apply to taxable employers. Since the cash reserves exceed the amount that allows employers to be taxed under the lowest rate schedule, the Fund is able to charge employers the lowest authorized tax rates.
Copies of the report have been distributed to members of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee and those required by law to receive them. If you are interested in receiving a copy of this report, please contact our office and request report number 00-14. The report is also available on line at www.legis.state.wi.us\lab\windex.htm.
Sincerely,
Janice Mueller
State Auditor
