Is there in any checks and balances in the the firms that do lottery audits? Or is it set up so somebody's cousin can do the auditing? Maybe, audit contracts are based on kickbacks. How do we know that the audits are really valid and unbiased? Is this something the Fed should be doing?

    As far as i know audits conducted by the lottery are contracted out to an independant firm. I think some states have two firms do seperate audit's and compare the results.

        Correct.  Auditors are usually CPA's, and they must maintain independence in fact when doing audits.
