Biggest Oklahoma agencies could be audited
By Dale Denwalt
Lawmakers gave final approval to a commission that will assign deep-dive performance audits on the state’s largest agencies.
House Bill 2311 now heads to the governor’s desk for her signature.
The independent comprehensive performance audits would be on the 20 agencies that receive the most in state appropriations. That includes education, transportation, the Health Care Authority and Department of Human Services, to name a few.
An auditor would be hired to do the commission’s work.
According to the bill, the audits would be staggered to cover each agency every four years. The product would be an analysis of the economy, efficiency, effectiveness and compliance of agencies’ policies, management, fiscal affairs and operations.
