Office of Legislative Audits

Housed within the Department of Legislative Services, the Office of Legislative Audits (OLA) is charged with providing "the General Assembly and the citizens of Maryland...independent, objective, and non-partisan audits and evaluations of State government agencies." For basics of how the agency operates see the FAQ page. The real meat of the site, though, is in "Publications" section. The OLA provides full access to its published audit reports, organized by agency. So...if you're researching possible wrongdoing by a state agency, this can be a very useful tool.
