A new audit says Missouri has too many vacancies on several advisory and regulatory boards.

A review of the Callaway County Circuit Court has revealed more than 11,000 dollars could be unaccounted for, with 60 questionable transactions beginning in Jan. 2011.

Callaway County circuit clerk Judy Gorner says the discovery of the questionable transactions occurred in a routine budget review by the Missouri Office of State Court Administrators (OSCA) in Jan. 2011.

The state auditor says authorities are investigating missing funds at the office of a central Missouri judicial circuit clerk.

Auditor Tom Schweich released a report Wednesday on his audit of the Callaway County clerk of the two-county 13th Judicial Circuit.

Schweich cites more than $11,000 in what he termed "problematic" transactions and $355 in missing funds.

An audit by the Federal Office of Inspector General says Missouri should pay back more than $21 million in federal Medicaid payments made to a state-operated children's hospital in St. Louis County.

The audit found that Hawthorn Children's Psychiatric Hospital failed for five years to fulfill regulatory requirements to qualify for the federal Medicaid reimbursements.

A written response from Missouri Department of Social Services disagreed with the findings.

The Missouri State Auditor released a detailed audit Wednesday on public defender offices and their ability to handle new clients.

Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich says the way in which the public defender system keep track of its caseloads is outdated. In the audit, Schweich raised concerns regarding the system’s reliance on national caseload standards dating back to 1973. He is deeming the so called “caseload crisis” to be based on “unsupported assumptions.”
