The U.S. Department of Education has identified four states that can expect stimulus-related audits by its Office of Inspector General: California, Illinois, New York, and Texas.

The department flagged these four states in its newest weekly report, under a “major planned action.” There aren’t any more details, except that these will be “initial” audits, and the OIG has been fairly mum on its auditing strategy.

Course, there isn’t a whole lot to audit yet. Most money hasn’t even made it down to the district level.
