The State Auditor is elected directly by the people of the State of Washington and operates as an executive office that is separate from the Legislature. Both the State Auditor's Office and the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Committee conduct performance audits. Performance audits published by the State Auditor have been prepared independently of the Legislature and the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Committee.

​​
STATE AUDITOR'S OFFICE PERFORMANCE AUDITS
  • The voters approved Initiative 900 in the November 2005 general election.
  • Initiative 900 authorized the separately elected State Auditor to conduct independent, comprehensive performance audits. The resulting law provides the State Auditor with the authority to audit any state agency, local government, or public education agency/institution.
  • The Initiative requires the Legislature to hold public hearings within 30 days of the State Auditor Office releasing audits of state agencies, to consider audit findings and receive public testimony. Public hearings shall be held by the appropriate legislative bodies for audits of non-state agencies (such as city councils or school boards).
  • The Joint Legislative Audit and Review Committee is required to report on the implementation of any State Auditor recommendations for legislative action.
