Oversight through Analytic Bureaucracies

Almost all states have an auditor general or an equivalent office. Many states also have other analytic bureaucracies, such as fiscal agencies. While the scope of authority, selection process, size, and power of these offices vary, they are a critical part of a state’s ability to conduct audits, evaluate programs, and oversee contracts.
