Audit Division Earns National Award

The Legislative Audit Division was recently awarded a Certificate of Impact from the National Legislative Program Evaluation Society (NLPES) for its work on Montana’s Sexual or Violent Offender Registry. The registry is the state’s primary database of offender information, with approximately 5,000 sexual or violent offenders registered. The information systems audit reviewed controls over the registry and made five recommendations to the Department of Justice in the areas of access, change management, and data integrity.

NLPES Certificates of Impact are awarded to legislative audit offices for recently released reports that have at least two of the following documented policy impacts: impacts from the Legislature’s perspective, impacts from the public’s perspective, impacts from other organizations’ perspectives, program improvements as a result of implementing audit recommendations, and dollar savings from implementing audit recommendations.

The complete audit of the Sexual or Violent Offender Registry is on the Legislative Audit Division webpage under 11DP-08.
