The Bureau of Special Performance Audits
focus on whether a program is working the way it should and as its management assured the public it would.
Their impetus arises from several places:
- A tip from a watchdog citizen
- Abuse of public funds exposed in the media
- An audit finding in the field
- Our policy office examining issues of the day.
The Bureau of State-Owned Performance Audits
conducts audits of correctional facilities, veterans' homes,
schools, mental hospitals, mental retardation, youth development and rehabilitation centers. The bureau also audits institutions of higher education including the 14 state-owned and 4 state-related universities.
