The City Auditor's Office normally reports on the performance of city departments, programs, and activities. However, this report is on our work and performance in fiscal year 2022.

We issued six performance audits in fiscal year 2022 that strengthen city government's accountability and transparency, and made recommendations to improve city operations. These audits assessed lease payments to the city, purchasing cards, body-worn cameras, illegal dumping, GOkc sidewalk inspections, and board financial disclosures.

The potential direct and indirect financial impact of recommendations and information in these audits is about $46.2 million. In other words, for every $1 we spent, our audit work identified about $40 in potential direct and indirect financial impacts.

Every three years the City Auditor's Office is 'audited', and this is called a peer review. The office's most recent required peer review happened at the end of February 2022. We successfully passed our 10th peer review, receiving the highest possible rating. The City Auditor's Office promotes government accountability, transparency, and improved city operations through independent assessments of city departments and programs. The city auditor is appointed by and reports to the Mayor and City Council and is independent of the city manager.
