Arizona Department of Economic Security—Sunset Factors


This report provides information on 12 of the sunset factors the Legislature is to consider in determining whether to continue or terminate the Arizona Department of Economic Security (Department). The report is the final in a series of five reports on the Department. Auditors’ analysis of the sunset factors found the Department’s performance satisfactory with regard to many of the factors. However, auditors found that the Department should determine whether and when it can proceed with rulemaking to establish rules for two of its programs; and take steps to help ensure that the councils, boards, and committees that it supports consistently comply with the State’s open meeting law. In addition, the Department should address the recommendations directed to it in the four performance audits issued as part of this sunset review (see Reports 17-101, 17-103, 17-104, and 17-109).
