Implementation of State Auditor's Recommendations - 2008

Classified by Standing/Policy Committee

On this page we include links to summaries of audit reports we issued during the previous two years that relate to policy areas that generally correspond to the Assembly and Senate standing committees.

Because an audit may involve more than one issue or because it may cross the jurisdictions of more than one standing committee, an audit report summary could be included in more than one policy area. For example, for an audit of the Batterer Intervention Program, the audit report summary would be listed under three policy areas—Judiciary, Local Government, and Privacy and Public Safety.

We also provide the following links to our audit report summaries classified by auditee/entity and by budget subcommittee.
