The State Auditor’s Office has launched a full-blown performance audit of the DOC that will take an independent, rigorous look at all aspects of the Department’s operations. 

View an overview document of the audit with background information and objectives.

The Auditor’s Office has selected the Athena Consulting/Criminal Justice Institute as its independent experts to assess staff safety at the Department, and they need your help.  

They will be visiting all DOC facilities across the State and want to hear your opinions, ideas, and concerns about staff safety. 

They sent you a recent email asking that you complete an anonymous survey to help prepare them for their visit.  A link to the survey is included in their email.  

The survey itself takes about 20 minutes.  Your response must be submitted by Friday, October 10.

A performance audit of the Department is long overdue.  The DOC will be held accountable to the legislature and the governor for any improper activity, safety and security hazards, or lack of effectiveness. 

Your help in exposing safety concerns is critical to a successful audit.  Thank you for your participation.
