Office Of Internal Audit

The Office of Internal Audit (OIA) performs the auditing function for the Executive Branch of State Government and provides an independent appraisal and evaluation of the effectiveness of financial and operational controls through objective analyses, evaluations, and recommendations on operations, systems, and contracted services of state government. The OIA has a designated Fraud Detection & Prevention (FDP) unit which was created during the Fiscal Year 2016 legislative session with the intent to address beneficiary fraud at an enterprise level.
