State AEL Review Report
The state AEL office will issue a written report which may include comments and/or findings resulting from the on-site review.

Comments
This section of the report will be used to identify items that the review found to be significant or noteworthy. No written response will be required to these comments (unless noted in the report).

Findings
This section of the report will be used to identify items that the review determined to be out of compliance with the grant/contract, fiscal/accounting concerns, concerns with policies/procedures, and/or performance that is significantly below state standards. A written response will be required for each finding identified in the report.

Program Designations

During the review, each area will be reviewed with specific items identified on the review form. Points will be awarded based on whether or not the item was met. Points will be totaled for each section. Each area has a weighted score and the total points for that area will be multiplied by the weight. A total score is generated based on the sum of the final scores from each area.
