Independent Audit and Compliance Services

Programs targeted to prevent fraud and abuse within cities, towns, and independent entities throughout the Commonwealth and prevent undue burden upon municipalities of state enacted legislation or regulations.


Independent and Municipal Audit Services For the purpose of conducting independent performance and compliance audits, including audits of health care services, in accordance with Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards to ensure that all agencies, programs, and contractors are compliant with applicable laws and regulations.
Insurance Fraud Prevention For the purpose of investigating and prosecuting fraud against insurers and against the Commonwealth's unemployment insurance and workers' compensation system in order to protect taxpayers from higher premiums and to ensure that those in need receive appropriate services.
Municipal Unfunded Mandate Compliance For the purpose of examining and reporting on any state law or regulation that has a significant cost impact on the Commonwealth's municipalities, including determining if a state mandate imposes direct costs on a municipality and providing reimbursement for the financial cost of any such unfunded mandate.
