City Auditor

Department Mission

In the auditor’s office, we go to great lengths to ensure fiscal stability and preserve the public trust in local government.

The purpose of the Auditing Department is to present a complete and accurate statement of the City’s financial condition.

We are responsible for ensuring that all city departments expend the tax dollar in an appropriate and lawful manner.

We do this by reviewing the activities, expenditures, revenues and other resources for which the city is responsible.

We also assist the City Council and city administration in the timely performance of services to the citizens of Gloucester.

Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statement

To meet demands for more responsive and cost-effective governments, policy makers and managers need reliable financial and performance information. The assurance that auditors provide about that information, as well as about the systems producing it, may be more important now than ever before.
