Missouri auditor to change how office reports findings

Friday, January 28, 2011 | 7:00 a.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich plans to change how his office presents the findings from its reviews of state departments and other public agencies.

The auditor's office will classify the performance of the agency being audited as excellent, good, fair or poor. Schweich's office says the rating system is the first major change to state audit summaries in about a decade.

Schweich says the changes will help Missouri residents understand the conclusions from audits. The new summaries will be seen on audits starting in February.
