Signing Senate Bill 4, Performance Audit Legislation

Tuesday, April 5, 2011


Gov. John Kasich signs Senate Bill 4, which will require performance audits for most state agencies. With SB 4, auditors will measure an agency’s performance as compared to similar organizations and industry benchmarks and offer recommendations for cost savings and operational improvements. When utilized correctly, performance audits provide a roadmap to make educated decisions about how to spend – and save – limited tax dollars.
