What is an Auditor?

Auditors provide information about government auditing standards and conduct internal audits. They examine debt management, spending, and accounting. Auditing departments help increase government transparency by making sure agencies tax dollars efficiently. Some government auditors oversee the accounting practices of private companies to protect public interests.

Although not strictly related to finance, some auditors work with public schools and other organizations that use tax dollars, such as reviewing standardized test scores, enrollment, and disciplinary statistics to ensure fairness in education. There are also auditors who work with information systems and legal compliance. These information systems auditors examine whether or not IT systems are operating securely and efficiently. Legal compliance auditors investigate whether or not different organizations are in compliance with the law.
