About The Oregon Audits Division
The Audits Division was established in 1929 by the state legislature to carry out the duties of the Secretary of State as the constitutional Auditor of Public Accounts. The mission of the Audits Division is auditing to protect the public interest and improve Oregon government.
We ensure that public funds are properly accounted for, spent in accordance with legal requirements, and used to their best advantage. We conduct our work in compliance with stringent professional standards, select audit topics to produce the best value for Oregonians, use the most modern and sophisticated analytical tools, and make our all of our reports available to the public. Our efforts help accomplish the Secretary of State's vision through:
- More effective and efficient service delivery;
- Greater transparency and accountability;
- Using innovation to connect Oregonians to their government.
