I am trying to find a good tool to use to pull simple reports from AD. I am in a heavily audited industry so I want to be able to pole AD from time to time to get simple reports.

Any suggestion??

I tried Quest reporter but at $8 per AD user it is a bit pricey when you have $250 users.

may be you can try dumpsec (http://www.systemtools.com/somarsoft/index.html) it's free and i think it can do everything you asked.
another thing you can use for the second part of your question is the "Security Configuration and Analysis" snap in for the mmc.
