About Auditor Offices

How does an Auditor select an agency or program to audit?

An Auditor may take a systematic approach by auditing all agencies or programs on a predetermined schedule, for example, one departmental audit per year. Alternatively, an audit may be initiated as a result of a specific question or issue that has been raised about an agency or program.

Does every government entity have an Auditor?

Every state has a department responsible for the audit function, though their responsibilities vary. In some states, separate departments or offices are responsible for different types of audits, such as performance audits, investigative audits, and financial audits. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) is the federal audit agency, though many federal agencies also have their own audit office. Many, but not all, county and local governments have an audit office.

Who appoints the Auditor?

At the state level, auditors may be elected or appointed by the legislature. County and local Auditors may be elected or appointed by either the legislative body or by a separate committee with oversight or audit authority.
