The purpose of these performance audits is to provide the states with an independent audit process aimed at assessing the effectiveness, efficiency and economic value of the Public Entity in meeting its mission. Additionally, performance audits look at the entity’s structure, employee skills, leadership and cultural aspects, processes and procedures, compliance with best practices and supporting technology and business intelligence. These audits also include a review of interactions with internal and external customers, internal and external metrics and performance under those metrics. In many cases comparative analysis and financial models may be required.
It is the intent of the performance audits, therefore, to help in holding implementers of Government programs accountable for the economic, efficient and effective discharge of programs. This may promote better public service delivery while enhancing public accountability and management.
