Former Greene County Prosecuting Attorney Darrell Moore, chief litigation counsel for the state auditor's office, has been chosen to manage two new initiatives meant to increase accountability in state government for Missouri taxpayers.
The initiatives are the Auditor's Swift Assessment Program, also known as ASAP, which focuses on serious allegations of fraud, waste or abuse, and the Auditor's Follow-Up Team to Effect Recommendations, or AFTER, which keeps track of audit recommendations to make sure they are implemented in a timely manner, according to a news release.
"I am pleased to lead these new initiatives for Auditor (Tom) Schweich," Moore said in the release. "For the first time, the state auditor's office will provide a rapid response program to protect the public's confidence in their government.
"At the same time, our office will hold entities accountable when they promise to make changes."
ASAP and AFTER are performed by staff auditors led by Moore.
Moore, who worked for Greene County as a prosecuting attorney for 26 years, was named as the state auditor's chief litigation counsel, in January.[[In-content Ad]]
