Audits review how well Massachusetts state government is using our resources to meet our responsibilities to residents of the Commonwealth and recommend ways to improve performance, and reduce inefficiencies.
Want to know how well your government is working? Audits assess state government performance, and recommend ways it can be improved. Among other things, audits can look at whether state resources are properly used, how state property and money are protected from waste, loss, or theft, if government agencies are following laws and regulations related to their responsibilities, and whether programs are meeting goals and achieving results.
The goal of audits is to make government work better and provide you with insight into how well state agencies are performing.
