The objectives of the audit were to determine whether the State of Wisconsin (1) spent grant funds effectively and efficiently; (2) complied with applicable Federal laws and regulations and DHS guidelines governing the use of such funding; and (3) enhanced the ability of State grantees to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other manmade disasters. The audit included a review of approximately $43 million in State Homeland Security Program and Urban Areas Security Initiative grant funds awarded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to Wisconsin from fiscal years 2008 through 2010.
