California Department of Transportation

Division of Audits and Investigations

Audits & Investigations (A&I) delivers professional audit and investigative services that assist management in accomplishing departmental goals and objectives, setting priorities, and in making efficient, effective, and financially responsible transportation decisions. A&I is divided into three sections:

A&I's significant contribution to Caltrans management and to the public is its independent monitoring role over public (State, local, and federal) resources. From this effort, State, local, and federal management is apprised of the operational vulnerability and risks that exist and is provided recommendations on how to implement proactive management practices to mitigate the problems. In addition, A&I's identifies millions of dollars of cost savings to the department, local governments, and the public.
