The Ohio General Assembly has passed legislation that allows the Ohio Auditor of State’s office to conduct performance audits of state institutions of high education at the discretion of Auditor of State Keith Faber.

“By removing the cap on higher education performance audits, it will certainly allow us to find efficiencies across the state that benefit students and ultimately our workforce in Ohio.”
