Is Full Accountability throughout City Government a Reality or a Dream?
Featuring David G. Jones, Seattle’s New City Auditor
Seattle's City Auditor primarily conducts performance audits, as opposed to the financial audits conducted by the State Auditor. The City Auditor’s office is charged with providing the Council, the Mayor and City departments with accurate information, unbiased analysis and objective recommendations on how best to use public resources. What does this mean for residents in terms of ensuring efficient management and full accountability? Does the system work?
David Jones will discuss the relation between state and local audits, examples of past and forthcoming audits, and how the office chooses and approaches its audit topics. Information about the Auditor’s office and reports can be found at http://www.seattle.gov/audit/.
Time permitting, the July meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues and projects in your neighborhood. If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
