Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) recommending the Board receive and file the El Dorado County Emergency Services Authority annual Financial Audit for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015-16 to comply with the requirements of Agreement for Services 200-S0811 between the County and the El Dorado County Emergency Services Authority.

A significant deficiency is a deficiency in internal control that is less severe than a material weakness, yet important enough to merit attention by those charged with governance.
