Reliability: We produce reports that are accurate, objective, fact-based, useful, clear, and candid. We achieve excellence through motivated and constantly improving employees upon whose knowledge, abilities, and initiative we depend. We expect the results of every project to add value to the operations of the State and its agencies and universities. Integrity is the foundation of our credibility. To serve the State and the Legislature, we provide nonpartisan, nonideological, and fair information. We are sometimes called upon to make difficult decisions about reporting issues within a political context, but we do not compromise our commitment to accuracy. We set high standards for ourselves and our work, and we take personal responsibility for our actions. We follow the highest ethical and professional standards, and we remain independent in our work.
