The Auditor's Office receives highest marks in peer review

In order to ensure audit quality and adherence to Government Auditing Standards, the King County Auditor’s Office is required to undergo a peer review every three years. Our reviewers were on site in March, evaluating the period from January 2014 through December 2016. They conducted a thorough review that included evaluation of internal monitoring procedures, assessment of a sample of audit documentation, and staff interviews to appraise knowledge and skills. We passed! In addition, they noted excellence in the following areas:

  • Highly qualified and experienced staff
  • Collaborative environment leverages knowledge and abilities
  • Innovative project management techniques encourage efficiency and results
  • Credible reports which are informative and impactful
