The $550,000 audit of the Idaho Transportation Department that's being released today ended up costing only $450,000, Office of Performance Evaluations chief Rakesh Mohan just told the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee. "It's a large and complex study, but we did it in a short amount of time," he said - and under budget. "Both the department and the governor generally agreed with our recommendations." The findings now will be presented to the joint committee; tomorrow, the House and Senate transportation committees will hold joint hearings on the audit.
