December 6, 2012Representative Michael Beard, ChairLegislative Audit CommissionMembers of the Legislative Audit CommissionDr. Edward Ehlinger, CommissionerMinnesota Department of HealthThis report presents the results of our special review of a grant from the Minnesota Departmentof Health to Sierra Young Family Institute, Inc., a private, nonprofit organization. Thedepartment referred concerns about the Institute’s use of grant money to the Office of theLegislative Auditor, as required under
 Minnesota Statutes
2012, 609.456, subd. 2. Thedepartment also appropriately notified other officials about the concerns.As noted in the report, we found evidence that the Institute’s executive director used a significantamount of grant money for personal expenses and fabricated documents to conceal the nature of those expenses. As a result, we are referring the report to the Minnesota Attorney General forpossible civil action to recover the grant money that was misused. We are also referring thereport to federal officials for possible criminal action since a significant portion of the grantcame from federal funds.We discussed the results of this special review with officials from the Department of Health onNovember 21, 2012. Our special review was conducted by Sonya Johnson, CPA, CFE, Managerof Investigations, and Lindsay Tietze, CPA, Team Leader.We received full cooperation from the Department of Health while performing the specialreview.James R.
