Integrity in Brief
It is a truth universally acknowledged that inspectors general require adequate funding to effectively perform their duties. Whether or not funding is adequate depends on the funding mechanism, but no particular method for budgetary allocations is used universally. CAPI reviewed different approaches throughout the country to better understand how budgets for inspectors general offices are set. This issue brief describes four different budget approaches used in various jurisdictions and examines their pros and cons. The Appendix lists the offices examined and provides information on their funding methods.
