A Review of the Professional and Occupational Licensing Division at the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation
Members of the General Assembly requested the Legislative Audit Council to conduct an audit of the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (LLR). The requesters were concerned about the operations of the professional and occupational licensing division and the financial status of the boards within the division. Our audit objectives were to determine how LLR:
- Procures and monitors contracts and evaluate the effectiveness of that process.
- Manages the finances of the professional and occupational licensing boards and if they have been managed appropriately.
- Issues licenses and if that process operates efficiently and in compliance with the law.
- Conducts investigations and evaluate the effectiveness of that process.
