"as a central point for coordination of and responsibility for activities that promote accountability, integrity, and efficiency in government."

Providing direction for and coordinating audits, investigations, and management reviews relating to the programs and operations of the agency.
Keeping the agency head informed concerning fraud, abuses, and deficiencies relating to programs and operations administered or financed by the state agency, recommending corrective action concerning fraud, abuses, and deficiencies, and reporting on the progress made in implementing corrective action.
