Audit Recommendations for a Legislative Audience
November 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
State audit recommendations can improve state government transparency, accountability, and effectiveness. Legislators often rely on audit recommendations to develop solutions for problems plaguing states. At the same time, poorly designed or inartfully worded audit recommendations can lead to missed opportunities to improve government performance. How can auditors better share their expertise through recommendations to help foster effective legislator responses to the concerns of the public? How can legislators work with auditors to develop and utilize audit recommendations to enhance their own legislative oversight? How should state legislators, state auditors, and their staffs interact to leverage their combined expertise to produce and implement useful audit recommendations? Join NASACT and the Levin Center for a panel discussion on audit recommendations for a legislative audience, and how to improve the state oversight ecosystem by helping lawmakers see state auditors as an essential resource for expertise and oversight capacity.
