Welcome to the State of Michigan Office of the Auditor General (OAG) Web site. This site has been created to assist you in understanding the OAG’s oversight function and in locating information regarding oversight, accountability, and transparency in the state of Michigan.
Initially created in 1836 as an elected office, the OAG became the independent oversight arm of the Legislature, and the Auditor General an appointed official through a majority vote of the members of the Legislature, with the adoption of the Michigan Constitution in 1963. As a Constitutional state office, the OAG derives its authority and responsibilities from provisions within the Constitution, as well as statutes enacted by the Legislature. The OAG fulfills its constitutional and statutory mandates by conducting audits in accordance with professional standards of the accounting and auditing profession, and all resulting audit reports are public documents.
