TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A company hired to study ways for the Kansas government to save money is also reviewing the state’s budget process.

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Ron Ryckman Jr. said in a post on the Kansas House GOP website that the firm, Alvarez & Marsal, which has been hired to perform an efficiency study of the state government, will also examine the method Kansas uses to spend money.

A&M spokesman Steven Alschuler told The Topeka Capital-Journal that it’s too soon to provide any specifics about its budget examination, but that the company is taking a detailed look at the budget process and will make recommendations.

State budget director Shawn Sullivan says he looks forward to the budget analysis.

A report from A&M is due to the Legislature in early 2016.
