Reports - Audits and Reports

Reviews

Our Office identifies areas of fiscal or performance risk within County government, as well as areas typically susceptible to error or waste. We also conduct exhaustive reviews of the County government units which oversee those areas, to ensure best practices are followed. The following are published audits produced by our office since 2008, as well as many of the audits performed by the county's outside auditors and analyses of the administration on certain issues.
