Local Financial Reports
Local financial reports are submitted annually to the Secretary of State Audits Division for our review. This practice helps ensure local governments are provided consistent, professional accounting services from their contracted Certified Public Accountants.
The division’s oversight role is mandated by statute (ORS 297.405 - .555 and 297.990) and covers approximately 1,800 municipalities in Oregon.
