Office of the Legislative Auditor - Program Evaluation Division

Agricultural Utilization Research Institute (AURI)

May 19, 2016

We found that AURI, a nonprofit organization created and funded largely by the state, does not adequately measure and report the impacts of its work. In addition, AURI does not require some of its clients to justify their need for the institute’s services through a formal application. We make recommendations to AURI to address several issues we identified. We also make recommendations to the Legislature to amend state law to address issues related to board composition and the Open Meeting Law.
