Legislative Post Audit

Kansas does not administer the Economic Development Initiatives Fund (EDIF) according to best practices for economic development.  Only about $7.8 million (18%) of fiscal year 2018 EDIF funds went to programs consistent with specific legislative intent.  We could not determine if EDIF funds are disbursed across Kansas as required by law.  The Legislature has not used the three EDIF accounts specified in state law in recent years.
