The Bureau of
Departmental Audits

performs post-audits of the financial transactions of departments, boards and commissions under the governor's jurisdiction. They determine if monies deposited in the state treasury were spent legally and properly and if laws, rules and regulations were followed.

The bureau also performs audits of two independent agencies: the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of the State Treasury.

Special audits of agencies are also performed to determine if their operations are working efficiently and economically.

The Bureau of
Public Assistance Audits

examines the operations of the Department of Welfare's 92 county assistance offices to determine if public assistance benefits were properly granted.

Auditors evaluate how well the offices follow guidelines set by the state. In addition, they make recommendations for improving the quality, accuracy and efficiency of service.
