LANSING (WKZO) -- A recent audit shows the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs has not been monitoring two veterans service organizations for over a decade.

MIRSNews.com reports the DMVA had been required to address performance standards for VSOs.  The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency was created in March by Governor Rick Snyder and is working to address the issues brought to light in the audit.

An MVAA official told MIRS the DMVA had been focused largely on getting troops ready to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001 and had let the outreach and performance management duties slip.
