As one of the nonpartisan staff agencies of the Kansas Legislature, Legislative Post Audit (LPA) works to improve state government. Think of LPA as the Kansas equivalent of the U.S. Government Accountability Office. Our role is to assess whether state government is working as the Legislature intended. The primary job of our 25?person staff is conducting performance audits. A performance audit essentially compares how an agency or activity is working to how it should be working. Is it complying with the law? Is it being effective in its intended function? Is it reasonably efficient? If not, why not, and what can be done to fix it?
