The Joint Legislative Audit and Review Committee performs oversight, review and evaluation of
state-funded programs and activities on behalf of the Legislature and the citizens of Washington
State. This joint, bipartisan Committee consists of eight senators and eight representatives,
equally divided between the two major political parties. Its statutory authority is established in
Chapter 44.28 RCW.
The Legislative Auditor, staff and consultants carry out the Committee’s independent
performance audits, program evaluations, sunset reviews and other policy and fiscal studies on
behalf of the Legislature and the citizens of Washington State. These studies assess the
efficiency and effectiveness of state programs and policies by looking at:
• Achievement of results;
• Cost and efficiency and effectiveness; and
• Accountability to the Legislature and taxpayers.
The Committee issues findings and recommendations and reviews how recommended changes
are being implemented. Its work is formally incorporated into the legislative process, with
recommendations often enacted into law, budgets and policy. The Committee follows nationally
recognized audit standards promulgated by the U.S. Government Accountability Office.
The Committee has conducted over 170 audits and reviews since 1990, yielding approximately
$536 million in one-time and ongoing savings. The Committee sunset reviews, since 1977, have
recommended termination or modification of over 80 state programs. The Committee’s work
spans all areas of state government.
The Committee’s 2005-07 budget is approximately $5.2 million. The Committee has a staff of
approximately 25 full- and part-time employees operating from its office in Olympia.
