A Report on Contract Monitoring at Certain State Agencies

April 2024


In accordance with Texas Government Code, Section 2261.258, the State Auditor’s Office has assigned contract monitoring ratings of additional monitoring warranted, reduced monitoring warranted, or no additional monitoring warranted to each of the 25 largest state agencies. Those agencies were determined by the Legislative Budget Board. That statute requires a report on those ratings to be submitted to the Office of the Comptroller of Public Accounts (Comptroller’s Office) and the Department of Information Resources (Department) by September 1 of each year. The Comptroller’s Office and the Department are responsible for developing guidelines for the additional and reduced monitoring.

For the purposes of this project, the State Auditor’s Office reviewed and analyzed relevant information from sources specified in Texas Government Code, Section 2261.258. Ratings of additional monitoring warranted or reduced monitoring warranted were assigned only after consideration of multiple sources of information.
