Performance Audits No Longer a Requirement for Local Road Agencies

Posted on October 26, 2017 by Dene Westbrook

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has re-evaluated its decision regarding performance audits. Upon receiving numerous audits as well as concerns regarding the value of these audits, MDOT is no longer requesting that these audits be completed and submitted to the department. Therefore, all local road agencies are not required to begin or complete any scheduled Act 51 performance audits.

It has been further determined by the Department that costs incurred related to these performance audits can be submitted to MDOT for reimbursement. Invoices for fees paid for the performance audit and supporting documentation should be submitted to the attention of Patrick McCarthy by email at [email protected].
