King County Auditor's Office
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
