Auditor of the Board
Working under the guidance and direction of the Board of Supervisors' Audit Committee, the Auditor of the Board provides an independent means for determining the manner in which policies, programs, and resources authorized by the Board of Supervisors are being deployed by management and whether those actions are consistent with the intent of the Board and in compliance with all appropriate statutes, ordinances, and directives. The Office of Financial and Program Audit (OFPA) was established to provide resources and support to the Auditor of the Board.
OFPA designs and conducts reviews, surveys, evaluations, and investigations of county agencies as assigned by the Board of Supervisors or the Audit Committee acting on behalf of the Board of Supervisors. For each study it conducts, OFPA focuses primarily on the county’s corporate stewardship. OFPA does this by developing recommendations that can be used to increase county revenues, reduce county expenditures, and otherwise improve the efficiency and effectiveness of county resources. OFPA activities can vary from a simple inquiry, a program study, or long-term monitoring.
Reports are presented to the Audit Committee on a quarterly basis and then presented to the Board of Supervisors for adoption. Our reports can be found on our Reports page or by clicking the links below.
