FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Edelen said Tuesday he did issue more than 60 recommendations to strengthen internal controls over financial reporting.
In particular, Edelen said auditors found the payroll system used by the Kentucky Personnel Cabinet needs improved oversight.
The new payroll system, implemented in the last year, is intended to streamline payroll, benefits, and other personnel administration across state government.
Auditors found inadequacies that could lead to incorrect calculations of payrolls and erroneous pay stubs.
The review found that one state employee incorrectly received payments of $10,284 due to a typo.
The state government audit, the most intensive financial review of the year, took more than 14,000 hours to complete.
