The Watchdog

The Charleston Daily Mail profiles the legislative auditor's office, the closest thing West Virginia has to a government accountability agency.

The office "combs through what it can of the state bureaucracy looking for excesses, inefficiencies, fraud and waste," the article said. "Aaron Allred, who has led the 60-person auditor's office for 16 years, said the biggest problems he finds are usually the result of poor judgment rather than outright malfeasance."

The auditor's Performance Evaluation and Research Division has been posting its audit reports online, as does its Post Audit Division.
