Iowa State Auditor

This checklist serves as a framework to help State and local governments increase efficiency and communicate with the public about their efforts. The following recommendations consist of a compilation of resources from across the country: from school districts, cities, counties, states, as well as federal organizations. Please note, not all items will apply to all public entities equally. If you would like to contribute ideas to the checklist or have feedback about this form, please visit our website to submit your thoughts at IOWA AUDITOR OF STATE: Public Innovations & Efficiencies (PIE) Feedback Form. Do you have questions about how to accomplish any of the items on our list? Please email Drew Stensland at


WARNING: You cannot save your progress, so you should not begin filling out the Online PIE chart until you are prepared to answer each question. You can download a PDF of the same PIE chart HERE to help you prepare.
