Report 2005-115.2 Recommendations
When an audit is completed and a report is issued, auditees must provide the State Auditor with information regarding their progress in implementing recommendations from our reports at three intervals from the release of the report: 60 days, six months, and one year. Additionally, Senate Bill 1452 (Chapter 452, Statutes of 2006), requires auditees who have not implemented recommendations after one year, to report to us and to the Legislature why they have not implemented them or to state when they intend to implement them. Below, is a listing of each recommendation the State Auditor made in the report referenced and a link to the most recent response from the auditee addressing their progress in implementing the recommendation and the State Auditor's assessment of auditee's response based on our review of the supporting documentation.
Recommendations in Report 2005-115.2: Department of Insurance: Former Executive Life Insurance Company Policyholders Have Incurred Significant Economic Losses, and Distributions of Funds Have Been Inconsistently Monitored and Reported (Release Date: January 2008)
|Recommendations to Insurance, Department of|
To increase assurance that Aurora follows key provisions in the ELIC agreements, the commissioner should seek the right to review Aurora?s future distributions of ELIC estate funds and review those distributions to ensure that it adds the proper amount of interest to the funds, and distributes the funds correctly.
In order to ensure that information is available to policyholders and other parties interested in the disposition of ELIC?s assets, the commissioner should, as soon as practical after the end of each year and upon the termination of any trust, complete a report that includes the assets and liabilities; the amount of all distributions, if any, made to the trust beneficiaries; and all transactions materially affecting the trust and estate.
In order to ensure that the financial information reported by the CLO is accurate, the commissioner should continue the practice of auditing the ELIC estate and any trusts that remain open on a periodic basis as recently implemented by the current chief financial officer.
In order to ensure that it accurately records distributions in its primary accounting system, and its financial reporting is correct, the CLO should periodically reconcile the distributions reported in its general ledger to its subsidiary databases.
