Richmond VA > Office of the City Auditor > Home

Last Updated: 2019-09-13

The City Auditor's Office was established by the City Charter. Today it consists of 12 professional employees.

We are committed to providing professional, independent auditing services to City agencies, in order to promote

  • Full financial accountability
  • Efficiency and effectiveness of operations and programs
  • Compliance with relevant laws and regulations

Under the guidance of the city's Audit Committee, the audit staff helps support management's internal control structures. Thereby, the office assists the City Council and the city administration in achieving their goals and objectives.

We are dedicated not only to the city as a whole, but also to the professional and personal development of our staff. Toward this end, we offer both a career path to help guide professional growth and on-going educational opportunities.

Please browse through our website. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact us directly.

We do welcome suggestions for improving this site. Please do not hesitate to contact us. And if you travel to Richmond, Virginia, please feel free to stop in for a visit at City Hall. We'll give you the full tour!

Peer Review

A Peer Review Team "audits the auditor" every three years. As promulgated by Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (GAGAS), the City Auditor's Office is subject to review by a Peer Review Team that is independent of the audit organization. Peer Review Team members consist of experienced auditors specifically trained in the peer review process. The Peer Review is coordinated by the Association of Local Government Auditors (ALGA).
