Management Audit Division

In 1980, the Board of Supervisors established a management audit function to perform detailed audits and analyses of County operations, review the annual County budget, analyze major financial issues, and conduct other special studies or projects. The Board currently contracts with a private firm for these management audit services. The Management Auditor is independent from County administration, as well as all departments and programs, and reports directly to the Board.

Examples of current and prior year audit reports, special studies and budget reports are provided below. Copies of these and other reports are available through the Clerk of the Board’s Records Division.
