The DSHS Independent Fiscal Support and Oversight Unit (FSO) provides financial oversight of DSHS grantees. The fiscal reviews performed ensure accountability by examining the financial records and internal controls of entities receiving federal and/or state funds through DSHS. The review process determines if the grantee's financial management and accounting systems are adequate to provide reasonable assurance that costs charged to DSHS grants are in accordance with contractual, federal and/or state requirements. DSHS fiscal monitoring is proactive, results‐oriented, and committed to providing technical assistance to grantees to help them comply with financial grant requirements.
