Arizona Department of Economic Security - Children Support Services - Transportation Services


In fiscal year 2013, the Arizona Department of Economic Security (Department) paid at least $14.6 million for transportation services for CPS clients. However, the Department does not use performance measurement to manage and evaluate these services, including overseeing contracted transportation providers. The Department should develop and implement a performance measurement system to evaluate these services and ensure that this system provides the necessary data to evaluate the appropriateness and cost-effectiveness of contracting for these services. In addition, although the Department has implemented some procedures to help ensure proper payments to transportation providers for these services, implementing additional controls would help ensure that payments are made only for valid services.
