Orange County Passes State Audit
OPPAGA audit required for Mayor’s Transportation Initiative
Orange County, Fla. – An audit required by law and conducted by the State of Florida’s Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability (OPPAGA) has determined that Orange County government has sufficient policies and procedures in place to deliver the transportation projects needed should a proposed one-cent sales tax increase be approved.
The objectives of the audit were to evaluate the program associated with the tax based on six tasks including:
- The economy, efficiency, and effectiveness,
- Structure or design of the program,
- Alternative methods to provide services,
- Performance measures,
- Public document accuracy, and
- Compliance of the program with appropriate policies, rules, and laws.
The OPPAGA performance audit determined Orange County met all six-audit tasks. Also included in the audit were 25 subtasks, with all determined to be “met” (21) or “partially met” (4).
Voters will cast ballots on the measure in November.
