The Performance Audit Division conducts three types of audits. Performance
audits are designed to determine whether an agency is achieving the objectives
established by the Legislature and managing its resources in an effective,
economical, and efficient manner. These audits focus on programs and issues
that are of particular interest to legislators and the public and make
recommendations to improve agency operations. Sunset audits are performance
audits that also answer specific questions set forth in the statutes to help the
Legislature determine whether or not an agency should continue. Program
evaluations assess a program's effectiveness and evaluate whether desired
outcomes are being achieved.
Audits are conducted at the
request of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee or under the provision of
various laws, including Arizona’s Sunset Law, which mandates scheduled
periodic review of state agencies.
