Office of the Commission Auditor
About the Commission Auditor
The Office of the Commission Auditor was established in 2002 by the voters of Miami-Dade County after their approval of the Home Rule Charter Amendment to create the position of Commission Auditor in order to provide financial, legislative, research analyses and independent audits to assist the Board of County Commissioners' decision-making process by helping to ensure governmental accountability, transparency, and the best use of public resources.
The Commission Auditor's duties include reporting to the Board of County Commissioners (Commission) on county departments and external agencies' operations to assess whether the fiscal and legislative policy directions of the Commission are being efficiently and effectively implemented.
A peer review team from the Association of Local Government Auditors (ALGA) has found the Office of the Commission Auditor to be in full compliance with Government Auditing Standards, which are established by the Comptroller General of the United States.
